this tour is a great way to see &hear about the history of |Leiden. In just an hour, Martin, the guide, was able to explain a whole load of detail about the canals, buildings, ships & a whole lot more as we tourists relaxed & enjoyed the sunshine, but dont forget to duck as several of the bridges you pass under are very low....& for just Euro 10, ticket bought in the "office" on the bridge I thought it was well worth it

This tour was just an hour, very easy to get to but a fun and educating experience. Never had a canal tour like this before (there are many very low bridges and we went under a couple of them - it was fun!
The tour guide and captain is both an adept captain (driving this boat and its maneuvering is not for a novice), and he is a historian - so you get a very well educated tour!

A last minute decision to take this tour at 6.30 pm was the highlight of our visit to Leiden. For 10 euros for an entertaining tour of Leiden's extensive canal system it's great value.
It gave my wife and I a much better overview of Leiden it's history, it's hidden secrets and it really expands your view of Leiden. The following day we took a similar more expensive canal tour of amsterdam. The Leiden tour was much more enjoyable and entertaining for a fraction of the cost. Highly recommended

We enjoyed our boat trip through Leiden, about an hour ride. The captain was very informative and spoke in English and Dutch. As it was cold in November the boat was covered with a plexiglass cover that was lowered and raised depending on the height of the bridges you go under. Be aware if you have back issues, you will need to stoop slightly in the seat at these times.
A lovely way to see Leiden, which is a beautiful university town.

Our skipper, Simone, gave us an enjoyable overview of Leiden from the water in Dutch and English! She was very knowledgeable and fun. The boat was decorated for the holidays, and it was covered, heated and comfortable. We had a fun time.
