It's the first time I'm using the app, but this audio tour convinced me to never go on a regular group walking tour again if the city is on offer! Very thought-through circular route with all the key landmarks and a very convenient interface that lets you actually explore at your own pace! Starts and gets you back at the entrance of the city center. The stories are great and told in a truly captivating manner. There is a 2-min story for each of the 16 landmarks which invites you to play it (or read it) as soon as you reach it. Just enough to take you to the times of old, but not too much to bore you (or make you look odd standing there on spot for too long at a time. :D Only a few glitches in the app that needed to refresh/log in again (but it might have been a networks issue). Especially recommend to solo travellers and those who don't have much time to explore, or are looking for a tour after hours!

Our captain Theodor took us through beautiful canals and gave us interesting information. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy, but he had blankets with him and our boat was covered. You just have to do it.

What I liked best was the guide who guided us through the canals and told stories with a nice mix of charm and knowledge.

the way the story was told is great , directions and even passages were a nice touch.

Very nice guided tour. Interesting history and story from Leiden.
