A city walk (the Leeuwarden Free Tour) of 2 hours in the centre of Leeuwarden. Very kind and knowledgable guide (Marcel) with a lot of (for us) unknown stories of the history of Leeuwarden. In Dutch as well in English.

Guided by enthusiastic Kevin we explored some hidden 'treasures' in the city center. Thinks we would have certainly missed without our guide. Good initiative these tours, great set up.
