Getting on the boat is a bit chaotic - there are no reserved seats so it's every man for himself finding a seat. Once you find a seat, it's very comfortable. Getting a drink is pretty much impossible. The tour information is in various language and really shows off the shipping industry in Rotterdam. It's a lot different than the... More

If you really want to round out your Rotterdam experience with information about the harbor (afterall it's the 10th largest/11th busiest container port in the world) you might enjoy a Spido Harbor Tour. It's a comfortable 75 minute boat cruise through one leg of the vast Rotterdam harbor system. Pre-recorded narration in 4 languages (Dutch, German, English and French, the... More

Well, I was around the area and decided to maybe check this out but it is kinda disappointing for me. I don't know what to expect, I went on this solo and did not really enjoy it. I thought it would have more excitement but it seems that they would much prefer you to spend more on eateries and drink... More

It was great taking to the water with Spido to discover the other side to Rotterdam, it is the third largest port in the world after Singapore and Shanghai. On this cold March morning we rocked up for the 0930 cruise but there was insufficient numbers to run the cruise, just the two of us, we came back later for... More

Really enjoyed this boat trip very interesting and informative, and you get to see places that you just wouldn't otherwise. You can get a drink or something to eat on the boat and it is no more expensive than any other cafe or bar. Just wish we had done the longer tour now.

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
