Rotterdam harbour boat trips

Will be in Amsterdam 20-23 Nov 06. Was thinking of taking a day trip to Rotterdam and taking one of these trips. I've checked the Spido website, and it seems there is one on Wed afternoons at 2pm, which would fit in fine. Could someone let me know where these tours start from please?. There is no mention on the website. Also, are these tours popular in late Nov? I wouldn't want to waste time going to Rotterdam, if the tour was cancelled due to insufficient demand.

Hi there,

a) All tours start at their jetty at Willemsplein. Which is 5 mins walk from metro station 'Leuvehaven', and even closer to the terminus of a tram line also coming from Central - forgot the number.

b) Usually Spido tours are guaranteed year-round, but maybe a Rotterdam local could add onto this.

All the best,

The Spido operates from outside the Tulip Inn and Maritime Hotel(as previous replier stated, 5 mins walk south from Leuvehaven metro). This is directly adjacent to the Erasmus Bridge (which you can't miss!), and tram 5 terminates here too.

Can't comment on November schedule, as we were there in July, but the tour was very enjoyable with good commentary (taped) in four languages.

I also recommend the bar/restaurant "Prachtig" nearby - just walk under the bridge about 50 yards.
