Fue un tour muy bueno pues visitamos dos ciudades y tuvimos tiempo para hacer visitas guiadas. El guia (Blas) tenia mucho conocimiento y muy buen sentido del humor lo que hizo el tour mas agradable. El guia recomendo un restaurante para almorzar y fue una excelente recomendacion pues nos dieron platos con mucha comida a precios modicos. Lo unico que recomedaria es que antes de llegar a las iglesias u otros lugares, se informara que si uno quiere entrar y apreciar la belleza del lugar hay que pagar y que se dara cierta cantidad de tiempo, o que el guia compre una entrada de grupo que era mas barata. En mas de dos ocasiones solo llegamos a la entrada del lugar y el guia nos dijo que vieramos desde la puerta o desde el lobby el interior de la iglesia. Me hubiera gustado mas que el guia nos hubiera llevado al interior de la iglesia y apreciar el arte y arquitectura del lugar. Aunque al hacer esto, hubieramos necesitado mas tiempo. Por lo demas todo estubo perfecto y Blas es super !
Having visited Euromast more years ago than I would like to own up to, I was keen to share it with my partner during a recent visit to Rotterdam to celebrate his birthday. Needless to say, he was blown away by the whole experience, but thankfully not literally despite the windy conditions at the top! The entry procedure was efficient and we were soon into a lift and whisked to the first level. However the best was yet to come. At the next level we sat in a rotating glass enclosed “pod” that went round and up in a spiral fashion and then back down again giving an excellent and changing view of the city and port with a bi-lingual commentary. On the way down we could not resist the restaurant/café that also had an excellent view in addition to a nice menu and staff. Unusually, cash is not accepted anywhere in the building which may be worth bearing in mind if visiting with a prepaid ticket and no bank cards. We will be back to Rotterdam, with Euromast high on our itinerary.
We are part of an Architectural Practice from Dublin and our visit was intended to take in the most recent developments in Rotterdam. I had lived there between 1979-1982 and the developments over a short span was enormous. From the redevelopment of the train station as an Iconic building in a short period to the Markthal building and the new high rise office building De Rotterdam made for an interesting architectural with the historic footnotes added. Anet was a great host and interesting with her comments and observations with her added book material to illustrate her points with regard to history and place. The tour itself can only cover a small part of the architectural past that is Rotterdam but lots of exciting building are in the pipeline for a progressive city. The water taxi ride was novel to us and an interesting break form the architectural jargon which may be alien to some tourists.
Being a bit scared of heights I would never have agreed to the top part of the mast if i knew it rotated - I am so glad I didn't, & went along with it as it was the most amazing views & experience!
We were lucky to have a small group but really enjoyed it. Easy ride for all kinds of people and a great way to experience the city.
