At first we were little doubtfull about a 6 hour boattrip including lunch around the Rotterdam harbour. Would it get boring was it too long? It was everything other then that. It was a 6 hours view at a city that for 75 years ago was destroyed by German bombs. Giant doors that shut the sea outside in case of... More

Maybe because it was a damp, gloomy week day, but left the Spido tour feeling very underwhelmed. I don't know what more I expected but for the price I don't think you can justify the hour or so of your valuable time on a tour like this. I adore Rotterdam and the gritty harbour life is all part of my... More

Just excellent, you see the historic harbour, container terminals and everything else about shipping. Super commentary in all languages. We went on the Marco Polo. Please be aware that if you choose to park near the venue it's Euro for 9 minutes and the meter accepts cards only.

Nice trip in the commercial harbour of Rotterdam, impressive to see so many boxes everywhere! Ok for kids, they gave us also a little colour-book and pencils to draw

a very intersting tour in the harbour of rotterdam, very impressive! the tour takes approximately 1 hour and 15 min. young children might get bored so its more suitable for adults who would like to learn more about this magnificent harbour, where many people work.

I would highly recommend this trip. I always love a boat trip anyway. But this gives you a good understanding of why Rotterdam became such an important port. It is truly massive. You see lots of interesting buildings in this city renowned for its modern architecture and the beautiful Erasmus Bridge. We also liked the boat which looked pretty new... More

thses boats travel down the river Maas going around the dock area and back, you can sit outside on the top deck but be advised, in the colder months to dress very warmly because it can bhe freezing cold on the water. There is throughout the sailing tour someone telling you the story of the river and the docks which... More

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
