About StoryTravel Holland Tours
Do you love stories? You probably do… stories you'll remember, stories you identify yourself with. That’s why we love telling them during our tours! Listen to stories about the ancestors of many American presidents, to the Pilgrim Fathers, who lived in Leiden for several decades. You’ll hear stories of the young Rembrandt, born and raised in Leiden, who drove his teachers crazy by doing nothing but drawing. And of the vibrant cloth industry that made Leiden the biggest city after Amsterdam in the 17th century Netherlands. We’ll visit the the University of Leiden, the oldest centre of learning in the country. Founded as a gift for the people of the city for their steadfast resistance against foreign oppression during the Dutch War of Independence. Finally, Leiden has beautiful canals and Golden Age architecture similar to Amsterdam, but smaller and quieter. StoryTravel, because you love stories and we love telling them!

On July 15 we did a walking tour of Leiden with a group of 20. Julie guided us through this lovely city with loads of enthusiasm, knowledge and fantastic stories. We absolutely enjoyed it and highly recommend using Julie.

We had this wonderful 2-hour walking tour of Leiden with Julie. First of all, she was most helpful and patient with our quirky way of booking and with our change of meeting time! And she turned out to be a great guide, with good information,...More

Our guide was really nice. She asked where we were from, & since I am from Massachusetts, she told us a lot about the Pilgrims connection to Leiden. I thought that was great. I have a feeling she customizes the tours to each client's interests....More
