Urban Legends Walk
A very special walking tour is the Urban Legends Walk, the most fun way to get to know a city.
Every city has its urban legends, those stories that are being told again and again, but whose veracity is doubtful. And then again, there are stories which sound completely preposterous, but which are actually true.
Can you distinguish between true and false?
Our guide will tell you about the city and its history. And after his story he will ask you: Is this true or false? It's up to your group to decide, but of course the guide will throw in all his or her cunning and persuasion to convince you. So in the end each member of your group will end up with a score: who is the doubting Thomas and who the acute listener?
The Urban Legends Walk is available in Leiden, Delft and The Hague.
Price: € 132,50 ex 21% VAT

Duration: 1,5 hrs.

Guided walking tour in Dordrecht
In 1299 Dordrecht received staple rights from the Count of Holland. This meant that all goods brought by river and passed through Dordrecht were to be presented first on the market of the town. The city grew and by the middle of the 14th century it reached its heyday.
Artisans and merchants came from far and wide to locate here. Dordrecht was actually the Rotterdam of the late Middle Ages: a transit port with a huge hinterland.
