Escort and Orientation

When you arrive at Amsterdam Schiphol airport our staff person has arranged taxi service that will take you directly to your apartment in Leiden, about 30 minutes away. Your representative will await you in the apartment.

If you’re unable to arrive in time for our group escort, or are coming from other parts of Europe, you may need to reach your Dutch apartment on your own. In this case, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions before you leave home.

On the day after your arrival, we meet all Untourists for an orientation session. Much of it will be devoted to teaching the use of the Dutch public transportation system, but you’ll also learn about specific events going on during your stay and have a guided informational walk of your pretty hometown of Leiden. It’s a good opportunity to ask any questions you may have. During orientation you will receive more information on the scheduled on-site event. Some of the possibilities may be a visit to the Peace Palace in The Hague, lunch in an authentic Dutch restaurant or a guided tour of world-famous Amsterdam with an art historian.
