Considering you are in one of the busiest ports in the world, this tour is rather perfunctory. It's pre-recorded in 4 languages and it cycles through each language for each point of interest. It would have been better to have ear phones and listen to...More

We were in Rotterdam, it was February, and wet, and cold. What to do? This tour of the harbour seemed ideal, and since it was my birthday i got on for free! It's an hour or two trip on a typical tourist boat, but you...More

A great way to see some of Rotterdam's wonderful architecture, with commentary as for what to look out for.

The tour was lovely because you get to see everything in the harbor in about an hour and a half. I did not love my experience because I was alone. It is a family experience.

When you have foreign guests, what is it you want to show because of your proud at it? For me it was the harbour of Rotterdam! Take a Spido Harbour with one of the comfortable boats with good guides/ translations!

Really interesting tour around the harbour, detailing the 600 year history and the current usage of Europe's largest and busiest port. The container ships seen up close are remarkable, as is the infrastructure of the port handling them. Sit on the right-hand side of the...More
