What people are saying about Rotterdam

This was a great way to see, and learn about the city of Rotterdam. We did a lot of walking and took our time so it took us a few hours. The puzzles are challenging, but not impossible. The way it links into Google maps to help you find your way is really cool. If you do go the wrong way and walk too far (because you didn't pay attention to the guided directions) Rotterdam's public transport network will come to your rescue. Definitely recommend doing this.

An unearthly experience! The rotating observation tower is a real architectural masterpiece that provides unforgettable views from various perspectives. Admiring the city panorama or landscape from such a height is an experience that is hard to forget. Additionally, the ability to observe the changing scenery as the tower rotates adds to this experience unique charm. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to feel like they are on top of the world

We enjoyed a lovely day out from Amsterdam with K7 Travel. As a small group of 5 we were driven in a comfortable MPV. Our guide Leidse, who knows 6 languages, was knowledgeable, entertaining and engaging with all guests. We had a great balance of short stops and longer periods with free time to explore.

Our guide Leidse was very nice and kind...and knew a lot of history and tips...thank you so much..!

It was incredible, a great view of all of Rotterdam.
