Delft city guide
Since 2016, Do DELFT has been organizing the most beautiful city walks, scooter tours and walking dinners, with enthusiasm and love for the city of Delft. We also lend a helping hand to (international) companies that want to organize their event in Delft.
To strengthen our team, we invite both experienced guides and starters to apply. The work for Do DELFT is carried out on a freelance basis.
The Do DELFT guides can be recognized by their:
o Enthusiasm; Usually the sun shines in Delft, but even when it rains, we passionately tell about beautiful Delft.
o Expertise; every participant in our activities is naturally curious about the Delft pearls. Our guides know how to find them effortlessly. And difficult questions… they don’t exist for them.
o Communication skills; they can tell wonderful stories, but also listen well. They are empathetic and give/receive feedback.
o Language skills; Dutch, English, German, Spanish or French, pas de problem! (even if you only speak English, you can be an asset to our team)
o Inclusiveness; there is no room for ego or fear in Delft, everyone is welcome and is valued for his/her qualities.
o Flexibility; a bus with foreign guests can sometimes get stuck in a traffic jam, or arrive earlier in the city.
o Improvisation skills; many things are going well, but not everything is going smoothly. Our guides don’t see problems, but challenges.
The Do DELFT guides can count on:
o An independent working environment, where you go out as a guide with your own group.
o 24/7 support from Do DELFT
o A well-organized activity.
o Learning / onboarding process; if necessary of course.
o Nice encounters with other world citizens.
o Rewards that are in line with the market and an end-of-year gift.

The famous painter Johannes Vermeer is known all over the world, but his cradle was probably in Delft. Probably… because his exact birthplace is not known. What is known is that he was baptized in the New Church and that a very large part of his life took place in Delft. Enough to tell about the life and work of the master of light!
During our walk, a Do DELFT guide will take you along important places in Delft, where Vermeer comes back to life thanks to beautiful stories.
- The Vermeer Walk takes about 1.5 hours.
- The cost of the walk is 90 euros per guide.
- A maximum of 25 people can participate per group.
You book the Vermeer Walk by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Walking Dinner in Delft
Eating and walking, that is perfectly possible in Delft. During this walk we combine cozy food with the history of the city. A delicious soup will be served at the starting location, where the guide will pick you up for a walk along the New Church, the town hall and the Meathouse. While walking, you arrive at the restaurant, where you will enjoy the main course. With a full stomach, we continue the walk. During this second part of the walk, the guide will show you the Prinsenhof and the Old Church. The walk ends with a dessert, you will like it!
- Our walking dinner takes about 4 hours and you walk about 3 kilometers.
- We work together with a number of good restaurants, which are centrally located in the center of the city.
- Dietary wishes and vegetarians are of course taken into account as much as possible.
- Drinks during the dishes are not included, you pay for these on the spot.
- Lunch instead of dinner? That is also possible! This arrangement consists of coffee with cake, a soup and a delicious sandwich.

Audioguide Citywalk Delft
Together with WeGoTrip we made an audiotour in Delft. Our own in-app audio tour is informative, sometimes practical but always relaxed and welcoming.
You will stroll through the streets, along the canals and royal squares. Wondering why the tower of the Old Church is so lopsided? Want to know why the Delft pottery is blue? And which royal highnesses are in the Royal vault? Your digital guide will tell you!
The tour starts at Market Square where you will learn how the city came to be, and marvel at the magnificent New Church, and the “oxblood red” shutters of the City Hall.
Next, you will see where the famous painter Johannes Vermeer spent his childhood and developed his talent. Then, you will plunge into the atmosphere of old Delft while examining the former meat house, which is now a must-visit restaurant, and the Butter Bridge, which was once used as a big fridge.
As you continue along the historical downtown of the city, you will “meet” the father of the nation – Willem van Oranje. You will cross the beautiful canals and be amazed to learn that they are full of bicycles.
The tour ends at one of Delft’s coziest courtyards, Hofje van Pauw.
We are sure that you will love Delft. Back home you will tell all your friends about the unique atmosphere in this old Dutch city. After all, Delft never disappoints!
