Looking for voluntary hosts/hostesses

Are you hospitable with a positive attitude and would you like to welcome people, sell tickets and point tourists in the right direction if they’ve lost their way? Please continue reading!

As a host or hostess for Stichting De Leidse Rederij:
- You’ll answer tourists’ and guests’ questions about our Canal Tours and pre-booked tours. Give them information about Leiden and sell tickets for our Canal Tour and Venice of the West watertaxi;
- You’ll welcome guests and guide them to their boat and skipper;
- Decorate the boats (if necessary) with balloons and stuff, especially for weddings;
- Participate in events such as ‘Schemerstad’, ‘Peurbakkentocht’ and Woodstock on Water. You’ll help in our Shipping Office with some light work.
- Help skippers to get their catering, cushions, blankets, life jackets and occasionally umbrellas on board;
- If necessary, answer the phone and write down any questions or wishes for reservations.

Just like the other volunteers, you can decide for yourself on what days you want to be here.

Does this sound like something you’d like to do?

If you are available for a few hours per week and would like to join our foundation, feel free to contact us. We can provide you with more information and we can discuss the potential of you becoming a skipper via our coordinator;
