One of the best trips we experienced

On June 19 we had a family outing with kids and grand kids. We enjoyed a high tea during the trip, which was well appointed.

Friendly staff, nice boat, good narrative. We were there on the day the nation celebrates the end of WW II so we were glad to take an early tour. The narrative gives you a good overview of the town then and now. Really good way to relax and see the sights.

I usedt o live in leiden but never took a boat trip, so took this opportunity to show my wife and son this lovely city. It was OK, all in all. Guide was clearly not too well but did his best. I know enough about Leiden to know he left a lot of facts out, but that's difficult when you... More

From the friendly ticket seller to the charming boat captain (Joris) these small but delightful boats are a wonderful way to see and learn about Leiden, and come with tea and cookies provided.

The best canal tour in Leiden. We had a great guide - knowledgeable, clear and friendly, who gave a live commentary in Dutch and English. The small boat from the bridge by the Beestmarkt held about 15 people - small enough to make it personal. There are many boat trip companies in Leiden, but we think this is the best... More

I took visiting family members on a canal ride through Leiden. It was a nice way to spend an hour. Our guide spoke both Dutch and English, and was knowledgeable and friendly. An interesting way to see the city.

We arrived early as it was a sunny day and we knew the boat trip would fill up. We purchased our tickets from a pleasant and informative man and walked around the area. When we got back right before the trip we saw the same young man making cappuccinos. We boarded the boat and the same young man was our... More

We rented a boat for 6 people. The rental process was straight forward,we were given good instructions for driving the boat and a map was supplied. We had an enjoyable 2 hours cruising the canals of Leiden on a sunny afternoon in a very comfortable clean boat.

We'd visited Leiden several times but hadn't previously viewed the city from the water. The boat trip lasted 50 minutes and we saw a lot of Leiden in that time. The guide was excellent and he gave the commentary in English and Dutch. He was friendly, enthusiastic and informative and we learned a lot. We were glad we'd chosen this... More
