“Thanks Patrick for an amazing adventure through The Hague. We can no longer walk through these areas without remembering the chilling past.... Excellent stories and enjoyable company.”
“On 3 June a big group of colleagues and myself experienced this great tour, followed by a 3 course dinner at Milú. We had a wonderful time! Patrick, our fantastic tour guide, is a great story teller and knows all about the dark tales and history of The Hague. Very entertaining and educational. Also helped us build up an appetite for dinner at Milú where all the dishes are just a party on a plate. I would recommend this combination (tour & dinner) to anyone and especially if you have a large international group to entertain!”
“We did this tour as the great end of our trip to The Hague and it was just awesome! Part of it was a very informative city-tour to some interesting places and houses and little alleys we haven't seen the whole week and are not to find in any city-guide, the other part were the scary, gross and creepy stories about what else happens or happened in The Hague off the screen. Little known facts and tiny little details about that beautiful city that cannot be found in any history book but is not only good to know but also makes you love (and respect) the city a bit more. Not to mention because it's in all other reviews: the just breathtaking, overwhelming and reality augmenting narrative style of the wonderful guide Patrick! We had so much fun and totally recommend it for everyone who wants to know a bit more than what one can see at first sight!”
“Fun and informative! Patrick's storytelling was thoroughly entertaining. His vivid descriptions transport you back to a time full of intrigue, murder, torture, public humiliation and execution. This tour should not be missed by those interested in the dark side of history.”
“We did not have any expectation of The Hauge. In fact, we thought we would just cycle through the city to get to Leiden as soon as possible. However, we saw someone giving a tour in the evening and I thought I would ask if we could join them. I am so glad we did! Aftercycleling though Holland, this tour was our highlight of the trip. The tour is in the evening and gives you an alternative view of the City. The tour guide is passionate, engaging and a fantastic story teller. The tour tells you the story behind the beautiful walls, what really happened. Kings going for night visits to women, murder, mystery and legends. I highly recommend this tour. It is both entertaining, chilling and informative. A must for anyone going to The Hague.”
“Went on this tour after having been in the Hague for almost a month. It was great! Saw some historic sights that I hadn't stumbled upon yet. A lot of general history about the Hague mixed in with the "dark" history. Very entertaining tour, Patrick was a great guide.”
“We did a private tour with Patrick and is was really great. All the bloody and haunting details of The Hague historic places were very realistic. Passing the Binnenhof with my bike will never be the same.”
“I recently went on a tour with an audience of locals and expats. I think none of us will look at the city centre in the same way! We now know that seemingly innocent locations have a very dark past.. It was a great tour, the history was very well told by Patrick.”
“Patrick is a fabulous and highly entertaining tour guide. He takes you on a journey through the ages, informing you of all the haunting and scary mysteries of the city. This 2-hour tour is a great way to get to know the city better and learn about historical aspects too. Plus, it makes for a great activity after dinner!”
“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We appreciated Patrick's knowledge of history and language. His stories were gruesome, informative, funny and totally entertaining. Walking through The Hague at night was quite beautiful and we will never look at things the same again. We would recommend for tourists and locals as well.”
“I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours on this night walk, learning the dark and sinister history of The Hague. Patrick was a great guide. We had a mixed group of Dutch people who have always lived in The Hague, expats living here, and foreigners. I would highly recommend this walk to locals and visitors alike.”
“From the start of our tour we were completely fascinated with all the interesting and sometimes disturbing stories Patrick had in store for us. He is a born storyteller with lots of flair. The tour is crafted with lots of love and shows all the known and lesser-known highlights of the city centre. The perfect balance between historical facts and exiting stories makes this tour a must see for everyone!”

“Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening with Patrick today. His stories and style of narrating them was really unique and kept the whole group entertained for the entire duration of the tour! This is an absolute must do if you visit The Hague, don't miss it :)”
“Patrick was a great tour guide. Brilliant stories, a beautiful route, plenty of Dutch history and politics and a great view of the hidden Den Haag. Fully recommend his tour delivered in exceptional English with good humour and answers to all questions!”
“We attended the tour last night and it was (in one word) AMAZING! When you think of the Hague you always first think that it is the city where the government is seated and the International Criminal Court is located...but there is more. Patrick told us the stories of the 'dark side' of the Hague, which made the town much more interesting. If you ever plan to visit the Hague, this tour is a MUST SEE/DO!”
