Day Trip to The Hague from Amsterdam

We will be visiting Amsterdam this October and would like to make a day trip to The Hague. Since there is much to see there, I am wondering how best to approach this visit. Perhaps there is a top-notch tour guide that gives tours there from Amsterdam? Thanks for your insights and advice!

A company like The Dutch Travel Advisor (Edwin Groeneweg) can transport you from Amsterdam to The Hague and provide you an in-depth tour. His company is part of Virtuoso, so they can do many behind-the-scenes activities. (I toured with him and we entered Mauritshuis one hour before it opened and also got behind-the-scenes at The Mesdag). With transport, it can be pricey, but he provides a great experience. Edwin used to live in The Hague - now he lives near the tulips in Lisse.

Another option is to train to The Hague (50+ minutes) and your guide can meet you at the Den Haag Centraal train station, which is a short 10-minute walk from the Old Town. There are also many excellent tour companies in The Hague which might meet your needs. Viator has many options and there are also a few Tours by Locals options. You can also self-tour, rent a bike at the train station, or ride the #1 tram over to Delft (about 20 minutes). So many options!
