We enjoyed a very nice tour through Rotterdam accompanied by the guide Willem. A Rotterdammer in heart and soul. Great to be able to discover Rotterdam with such an enthusiastic guide. It is recommended to use the water taxi. Great experience!

Guided tour that literally and figuratively gives a nice overview of what Rotterdam has to offer. Extra asset: access to places (including the White House) that you simply cannot enter as a free tourist.

A wonderful tour with William! We particularly liked the high locations where we could see the city. It was great to go to two very different parts of the city with the help of the water taxi.

Very good tour of the city and its main points of interest. Good guide, Willem, with lots of explanations, leisurely pace, good humor.

Interesting walk for a mixed group of 13 to 75 years.
