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.

If you only have little time in Leiden, this is the first thing you should do!

A 1 hour tour costs 10€ (and they offer discounts for students, kids, seniors, groups) and is a very relaxing experience, but also an exciting ride through the canals of Leiden, which takes you under dozens of bridges, some of them so low the roof needs to be lowered and you have to bend your head.

Our guide, Martijn, was very knowledgeable and offered us a great amount of information in Dutch and (flawless) English about the history of Leiden and about certain interesting and less-known facts. There was also a booklet in many languages with information.

Overall, it was a great insight in the history and spirit of Leiden and a highly enjoyable ride!

A young student took the boat tour. Fantastic and very informative. He was speaking three languages fluently while steering the boat. Good sense of humour and answered everyones questions. The boat was covered due to the cold day and was strung with pretty christmas fairy lights which were lovely when passing through the low tunnels. The roof of the boat drops down quite low in places and anyone over 5 ft tall had to bend over - great fun.

Our skipper was superb. Very informative and answered numerous questions. Lots of useful information. Best of all it was a rainy day and the roof was on and blankets provided. Highly recommend

A fun and very informative hour canal tour through old Leiden. Note that many of the canals bridges in Leiden are quite low so the boat lowers the see-through roof in order to squeeze under the bridges. At times you're required to even crouch down. Loads of fun and very unique.
