What people are saying about Rotterdam

Excellent experience, there are many mills, 2 can be visited, and there are 2 small boats available to make the tour, one without stops with more travel and the other with stops at the mills. Highly recommended. Ps bring something to protect your head from the sun, there are no shaded areas

All the staff were very helpful and most informative. We had a wonderful time at the village and would recommend it to everyone. Well worth the trip from Rotterdam.

The Park is very beautiful but the organization is quite bad, they put it as if it were with a guide but they never say where it is picked up or anything

The service is very secure, as soon as I show the code we go through everything quickly and without problem. It is an excellent option.
