The cold, rainy weather was somewhat daunting, but we still enjoyed the walk. The canals are lovely and the historic buildings are very interesting.

We traveled to Leiden especially to take the walking tour. The guide said he already had two Dutch speaking guests, and was not prepared to take English speaking visitors as well. We were happy to just accompany them and look at the sites, but the...More

To me, Leiden has the feel of Amsterdam, but smaller, less crowded and so charming. An old windmill, where the Pilgrims lived before sailing across the ocean, a small fortification where the inhabitants could flee for protection, a nice shopping area with several outdoor cafes...More

Easy stroll around historical Leiden passing good cafes, churches and lovely little streets. You pass the meeting house where the pilgrim fathers set off from on their journey that eventually ended in America!

The old town of Leiden is a very pleasant and lovely, not very crowded and well preserved, with lots of interesting things to see. Sort of a cleaner and smaller version of Amsterdam.

Leiden is a lovely town and the Loop Walk was a nice way to tour the town. The walk is largely flat terrain, can be completed in a few hours at an easy pace, but the map can be a little unclear. It so happened...More
