“Iris de Geus (the History Company) took two groups, consisting of students, staff and members of the public on ‘water walks’ of Delft, to celebrate World Water Day 2019. Everyone found them fascinating, accessible and really enjoyed Iris’s storytelling style which is funny and engaging. We will certainly ask iris to walk with us again.”

“In preparation of a newspaper article for Trouw, Iris took me and my two sons (9 and 12) on an excursion through Delft. Not only did she tell all kinds of interesting stories about the city, she let us feel and experience the history of this old town. In the medieval prison of Delft she, for a moment, became the convict Balthasar Gerards and took us into his world. Later she, just as easily, stepped into the shoes of William of Orange. Iris really brought the history of Delft to life.”

My mother and I are both Dutch citizens from the Hague: we’d visited Delft multiple times, but Iris told us so many fascinating stories that were new to us! With the help of the beautiful architecture and statues in town, she brings history to life in an exciting, accessible way. Iris is very knowledgeable and open to questions. She knows Delft very well and can recommend nice places for coffee and lunch afterwards. We highly recommend the History Company.

We had a tour around The Hague, and what I loved most was that not only did our guide Iris tell us everything we needed to know, but it was also everything we wanted to know. It was as though it was perfectly tailored to us as (youngish) 30 year olds. She really impressed us with her knowledge even to the point when we were pointing out random buildings we liked the look of and her being able to tell us fun facts about them! There really is no better way to see and appreciate the city and her clear accessible storytelling has stayed with me. William of Orange keeps popping up everywhere at the moment which takes me back to the great memories I made in The Hague!

Went on a tour through Delft with the History Company. Our guide Iris was really great: highly enthusiastic and knowledgable. She knows the city and its history very well and has little fun facts and great stories about all corners of the city.
Would highly recommend this company for a tour! Also check out their great website.
