There are a number of canal tour options in Leiden, ranging from water taxis to fancy restaurant floating dinners, but you won't find a more friendly and flexible operation than Bootjes en Broodjes. They use very small electric boats, which give the tours a much quieter and more intimate feeling. Also, they can go under bridges that are too low for the larger boats. Sometimes you really had to duck! We liked the tour so much that we took it twice, both times with excellent guides. They go up and down almost every canal in Leiden and have an excellent sense of tour direction.
The boats are so quiet and simple that you can rent one by the hour with no training at all, and do your own tour. They also sell decent drinks, including wine and beer, to take with you, and will arrange for simple catering on advance request.
A quality experience, and really the essential way to see Leiden. Highly recommended!
