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...More

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

We wanted to take a tour around Leiden and we didn't regret our trip with Bootjes en Broodjes. It was reasonably priced and our tour guide was excellent - informative, relaxed and funny. We learned a lot and really enjoyed our time on board.
