The Netherlands has always been a seafaring nation and the Port of Rotterdam is the modern incarnation of that tradition. The boat seats about 600 and is large and comfortable. There are bar and cafe seating areas inside and out. Free washrooms! The narration in English and other language points out the tourist attractions in the city and the important... More

We took this trip on a poor day weather-wise, but it was very interesting all the same. A great commentary provides lots of information on the port of Rotterdam. Our only quibble was that the timing wasn't quite right so that by the time the English/German/French descriptions came round, the topic being discussed was sometimes far behind. Both of us... More

This was a good boat trip which included a trip around part of the port. I could never have imagined how big the port was or how big the ships were before this trip! The boat itself was grand, I managed to get a seat up top, but at times it was hard to hear the commentary due to the... More

If you are at all interested in what it takes to supply our global economy, the Rotterdam harbor is an excellent place to start looking. We were looking for something to do on a Monday (since most of the museums outside of Amsterdam are closed on Monday during the off season) and happened to think of touring the harbor. What... More

I generally don´t like boring boat tours. this one is actually set up just right. The isn´t any non-stop blabber tape running, but rather one that just points out some things along the way. (Although who is going to remember how many thousands of liters of any given liquid go through Rotterdam anyway?) But actually also gave some good ideas... More

Well worth the price and wow rotterdam port is huge. Chips cakes and beers cokes all on board. Located next to the water bus which makes a nice trip to the Windmills after....Both these take up a day and we'll worth doing

Good value for money. Well worth seeing the Port it is massive and we took a public boat from next to Spido to windmills after. Both trips together fill the day.

We really enjoyed the 75 minute harbor tour. Rotterdam has an amazing harbor and you really need to tour it. We did this the day before our cruise left on Oasis of the Seas. The tour boat is very comfortable with lots of areas to see the views (covered and not).

Our first day in Rotterdam and this was a very relaxing way to see the City from the harbour and find out some history. Having the on board commentary in 3 languages was a good idea but after a while it just became part of the white noise and I missed a fair bit of what was being said The... More
