While the harbor is over 40 km in length, this tour does not extend for the entire distance. It does offer a great view of many of the major highlights of Rotterdam. I did find it to be a tad bit too long; I think it could be shortened by about 10-15 minutes and been just as effective.

Today we went with a group of 20 people on a boat tour on the Maas in Rotterdam. The Spido boat is very modern with good view to all sides and good explanation in 4 languages.

12 euros per person, the boat takes you for a 75 minute ride. While its interesting to see when you are still in the city, if you are not too interested in ships and docks and the industry around the shipping in Rotterdam, it can get boring. Bar downstairs was adequate and there was ample place to sit both downstairs... More

We were expecting to see the real stuff: massive oil terminals , giant refineries, big container terminals which makes Rotterdam an impressive port. All you see with this tour is a small fruit juice facility and old cruise ship and some dry bulk and container harbours..It was simply boring

Taking the 75 min tour it was only possible to see a small part of the Rotterdam docks area. The Spido boat was clean and with big windows it was possible to get a good overview of the docks and the river areas. If you are interested in ships and taking a trip along the river, then this is the... More

I think that is very important to know the Rotterdam harbor. I did a tour for 2h, but this kind of tour is only in July and August. The short tour is also good (45min), and you have the opportunity to visit the mains places in the Harbor.

We took the 11.30 harbour tour on a Tuesday. This was during the school autumn break for North Holland, so there were a lot of passengers, including children. Our boat (Abel Tasman) can take 325 passengers so there was sufficient seating, inside and on the upper, open decks. We bought our tickets at the kiosk under the Erasmus Bridge, €11.75... More

A great way to see the water areas of Rotterdam. Well worth the money and time. You can see the whole harbor and Spido did a good job explaining the sites. Should not be missed on your visit to Rotterdam. Public transport is easyfrom the central railway, get a visitors pass for all day, 7 euros..

We took the last tour of the day, it was not very crowded, but I believe we visited during the off season. It was an interesting way to see the workings of Rotterdam. It was very informative of the surrounding area and gave a nice perspective to get great photographs of the port and surrounding city!

Waste of time and money. It could use more information, but I'm not sure what the information would be about. A free sandwich and a drink or two would make it more worthwhile. I would not recommend this to anyone. I just don't see the appeal.
