Canal Tour

Take a nice boat tour through Leiden. You will be sailing on a stylish water taxi through the picturesque canals and along the green fringed moats of 'Old Leyden'. An experienced skipper will tell you about the splendor of Leiden’ s history. A boat tour through Leiden will show you in just under an hour the many beautiful sites in the city’s centre.

From Saturday, June 5 to end-October the Boat Tour Leiden runs on a daily basis from our shipping office at Apothekersdijk number 5 in the centre of the city.
We provide boat trips with a maximum of nine guests per boat (according to the one and a half meter protocol).

Our open "skûtsje" - suitable for up to 9* people (according to the one and a half meter protocol) - traverses the narrowest canals and takes you along the most beautiful sights of the historic city center.
