What a great day touring the canals on a Kayak. Our guide was awesome. The pictures that he took were awesome and we will cherish forever. I would recommend choosing this tour!

I'm an experienced dutch kayaking enthousiast and I was wondering how Maarten organized his trips. Maarten always starts at point where you expect no or little boat traffic, making it easy to give some minimal safety instructions and to get people a little experience before entering the channels. He does great on the water too, only giving those instructions that are absolutely necessary. Maarten is no tourist guide and that's probably a good thing; just enjoy the trip on the water. He uses small but stable sea kayaks you'll feel right at home in the kayak ... well, after the first few minutes anyway. Great, inexpensive fun even if you haven't been in a canoe before. So if you're going to Leiden, why not see it the way it was originally intended, from the canals?

We just returned from a wonderful afternoon kayaking through the canals of Leiden. It was organized by some friends in Leiden and we took the short train ride from Amsterdam. Totally worth the ride. And I understand that Maarten also does the kayak tours from Amsterdam. It was a nice afternoon so we were happy to be outdoors. Maarten has excellent customer service and his tutorial on how to get in and out of the boat, how to maneuver and how to turn/brake was spot-on. This was my first time ever in a kayak and his instructions were very clear. It was wonderful to be out in the water and Maarten checked on us all at different points to make sure we were doing well and enjoying ourselves, all along making sure we were safe and following the rules of the canals. Stay to the right! I recommend that if you are in Leiden or Amsterdam give kayaking a try. You are in good hands with Maarten. (Can't wait to try this in my own home town of San Diego when we get back!)

Took this tour as a way to amuse teenage son's while on holiday in Netherlands. We loved it!! Maarten was an outstanding guide and made the tour very enjoyable and fun!!! I have never been in a kayak before in my life and it did not matter, the tour is for everyone. We did the 2 hour one which was perfect! He does instructions on land first so you know what you are doing when you get in the water. This tour is a MUST do. Fantastic and fun way to see the canals while getting some exercise too!! Try it, you won't be sorry you did!!

I know Leiden for years, but it was very nice to see Leiden from the canal point of view. Amazing how close you are on the water, so much details to see, so pieceful. It was nice to sail in a kayak, there was a short introduction and the companion was good.

Canoeing over the canals in Leiden is fantastic! It's beautiful and adventurous: The sight I got from Leiden was so different than just walking through it and there's these tunnels with small surprises.
Going with Zeebaard was very reassuring since I don't have that much experience with canoeing. Maarten really helped to get in and out the water safely (dry!) and the instruction of how to handle a canoe made it easy to complete the trip.
And since there's so much water in Leiden it's only natural to make a trip on the lovely canals.

We did a morning tour on August 17. Maarten was an excellent guide and like most Dutch spoke English very well. Maarten was very knowledgeable and we learned interesting facts about the canals in Leiden. The scenery was spectacular and we did not have to worry at all about photos as Maarten took beautiful ones all along the trip. I was nervous about falling into the water but none of us did and Maarten’s orientation to the boats and how to paddle was very well done. I would highly recommend this trip as a perfect introduction to the beautiful Leiden!

I have lived in Leiden for 4 years as an expat, and I have seen Maarten and his tours go by. Each time I thought "I really want to do that." On whim I signed up this week, and I loved every minute of it. Best way to see Leiden is from the canals. I can't believe I waited this long, and I will definitely be back - next time with a group of friends. See you on the water!

We are a family of 5 with very little kayaking experience. Yesterday’s afternoon with Maarten was wonderful. It was very well paced and very organized. The meeting location was easy to find and being a dead end canal, it was great to get comfortable in the kayak before hitting other traffic. The route is a loop around Leiden and Maarten takes pictures of the group the entire time. A really fun time was had by all.
