Overall rating

4.4
(1,168 reviews)

The boat trip was interesting, I will definitely do it again, and it would be good if there was an option to provide the audiobook in Polish. there are a lot of Poles and I'm sure they would be more willing to go on cruises.

It would have been good if it had been noted when booking that the part of the port where the large container ships sail is not included, then I would have booked that too.

A very nice trip that lasted just over an hour. You see the beautiful skyline, the harbor and much more! Everything was explained in English, French and Dutch.

Nidas did a very informative yet funny tour through Rotterdam and involved the guests as well. Would highly recommend

Very nice harbor tour. Everything was great. Highly recommended.
