Pilgrim Tour Netherlands

The Pilgrims are a group of people that fled England and came to live in Leiden. In the beginning of the 17th Century, this group of 100 religious people came to the Netherlands to seek refuge. At first, they were willing to stay in Amsterdam, but they were only able to settle in the city of Leiden. They stayed more than 10 years in Leiden before sailing on The Mayflower to the New World (America).

All of our Pilgrim tours are tailor-made based on the clients’ wishes. An example of a tour could be such as the following:

Start where they settled in Leiden. Visit the Pieterskerk: the Church they prayed in for all those years. Inside, you will find some Pilgrim registers. After, visit the Leiden American Pilgrim Museum, and John Robinson’s House (the pastor of the Pilgrims and one of their leaders). Enjoy the Hortus Botanicus Leiden, a splendid botanical garden inspired by the Pilgrims’ heritage. And finish the tour in Rotterdam, were the Mayflower departed toward the New World.
