What you will experience

During this 3 hours private tour you will discover the beauty of Leiden with a real local. Explore top sights like the city’s romantic canals, Burcht van Leiden and the century old city gates. Moreover, your local host will give you the best tips for the rest of your stay.

Meet up with your local host at Leiden Central Station from where you’ll pass two iconic wind mills towards the historic city center. Along your way towards the Burcht van Leiden and Leiden City Hall, you will be amazed by the countless picturesque facades of the canal houses. Ask your private guide anything you would like to know about the city or its culture.

Discover why they call Leiden the little Amsterdam: as beautiful as the Dutch capital but smaller and less crowded! Listen to your local host’s personal stories of what day-to-day life in Leiden is like and don’t forget to enjoy a drink at one of the many terraces!

Before parting ways with your new local friend, make sure to ask for recommendations for the rest of your trip. Whether it’s advice on where to eat or which neighborhoods to visit, one thing is for sure: locals know where to go to.

And remember: this tour is 100% private and can be personalized to your wishes at all times.
