“must-do if you're interested in the port city”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

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 at it solo unless you have time as there are plenty of other things to do!

“Great boats to see the Harbour in”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

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, but its factual and interesting.. and once back into main Rotterdam, the buildings alongside the Maas are interesting too.

“Interesting visit to a very big harbor”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

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 brief and there is no chance to ask questions about what is seen. No written material is provided; I think a map of the harbor would have helped with regard to seeing where the water comes from and where it goes.

“If you have enough time...”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

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 money...

“Good views”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

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
