American Revolution in Leiden Walking Tour

6 reviews
*PLEASE NOTE: I offer regular tours Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with the FREE tour concept. Viator booking is for private groups :)<br><br>Everyone does tours about the Pilgrim Fathers in Leiden but everyone forgets about FOUNDING Father John Adams' time here! His mission to the Netherlands to secure a Dutch loan during the American Revolution is one of the most significant and forgotten about chapters in the war and Leiden was undoubtedly his favorite city. The loan that he secured helped save the United States in its infancy!<br><br>Join me on a stroll through the Leiden of 1780 and discover the places Adams stayed, his place of worship, his sons' residence (one of them being the 6th President of the United States!) and the houses of his dearest friends and allies. We will also learn about his connection to the Pilgrim Fathers as well as other major sites.

Loved the canals in this city especially when the sky is blue which created beautiful reflections in the river. Great to take your time strolling along the canal and take some good pics.

If you want to visit Leiden, I think here was the nicest place in Leiden to walk and take some pics, go to cafes or restaurants.

The Rijn of Leiden and its surrounds naturally bears similarity to the larger Canal Rings of Amsterdam. But while it is not flanked by as many trees, the town's architecture and foliage lend it a more cosy, town-like feel. The Rijn and the whole of Leiden is definitely worth visiting on a day trip from Amsterdam.

It`s lively and beautiful riverside. You can either walk or bike along the riverside or take a boat tour too. The weather was so hot at the end of August that it was hard to understand.
