Went on the Spido Harbour Tour with a friend. It's a must-do if you're interested in the history of Rotterdam as one of the largest port cities in the world. Even if you're not, it's still an interesting visit to a large habour which provided a great way to see Rotterdam. However, if you're the latter, I wouldn't necessarily go... More

The Spido boats are of a high standard. The top viewing gallery allows you to see the whole of Rotterdam in comfort. We passed under the Eramus Bridge, upto the the shipyards.. I'm a bit of a geek so enjoyed seeing the boats in various states of repair. The size of them amazes you. It isn't the prettiest of tours,... More

We took our 2 granddaughters on this tour so they could see one of the largest ports in Europe, where so much is unloaded and sent down the Rhine. Not very exciting, but interesting. It would have been better to have a real person speaking and answering questions but they use a recorded tour in several languages, hence it is... More

It's a cruise on Maas river,starting from Willemsplein,at one of the Erasmus bridge end.From the ship you'll see a part of Rotterdam shipyard,some beautiful buildings on the river's banks,the SS Rotterdam museum ship,Erasmus bridge. Combined tickets that offers you entrance at another else touristic objectives are available. Not the most interesting thing to do in Rotterdam but,let's say,it worth the... More

A very reasonable price for 75mins of harbour tour allowing you to see views of Rotterdam from a different angle. The commentary I did hear was very informative and interesting

To get a very good idea of the Rotterdam harbour and its vast expansive area then a trip with Spido is recommended. The 75 minute tour we took was guided in English, French and German and of course Dutch. It was informative and interesting. €11.25 is a little high but suited me. You can sit inside and outside the vessel... More

Rotterdam is one of the biggest harbors of the world. It's the port to Europe. Take the Spido Harbor Tour and learn all about it. In the meantime you drink and eat a little.

The commentary is recorded rather than a live guide. It was sometimes difficult to hear but the trip was comfortable and peaceful and a most enjoyable way to see some of the sights of Rotterdam. After sitting on the top deck for a while, my colleague and I made our way downstairs to have a sandwich and a drink. The... More

Couldn't hear all of the commentary but the tour boat is comfortable and a great way to see the docks area, with huge ships being loaded/unloaded.
