A 6-hour guided tour of the two Dutch medieval cities of Haarlem and Leiden!


Discover the unique and totally different atmosphere from Amsterdam of those two old cities. First I will take you to Haarlem, the city of 17th century legendary Dutch artist Frans Hals. I will take you for a walk around a historical city center where you will see the Grote Markt square with its massive St. Bavo cathedral and old town hall, then for a walk to the embankment of Spaarne river, from where we will get a great view over the city. Afterwards we will walk towards the old Walloon & Bakenesser churches. After the walk you will have time for a lunch. I can organize a lunch for you at some special places. Please contact me for suggestions. After the lunch we will travel to city of Leiden. City of Rembrandt and the first Dutch University. I will take your around the center of the city for walking tour during which you will see the old Leiden University building, St Pieters church, the old city citadel and grounds were Rembrandt's house use to be.
