Overall rating

(1,447 reviews)

It was perfect ride for my father (80 years old) and my mother (71 years). The tour guide spoke English and also French as well as other language but I forget what. A lot of information that I knew and never heard it before, which is good! Very informative. They also sell drinks and gebak. They have separate toilets for woman and man...and its a clean one 👍 a lot of nice pictures with cool backgroud that we took yesterday.

If you want information about the commercial port, you've come to the right place. Information about Rotterdam is rather sparse. In addition, coffee/cake and conversation on board are more important than being able to hear and understand the information. The cake was very tasty though 😋

Nice quick trip through the port of Rotterdam. The captain was also pleasant and chatted with some information at certain stops. It was a successful trip

My family and I liked everything. We saw a lot and the cake was delicious. We might book again. I recommend it.

It was a nice boat trip along the harbour. The guide told it very well and enthusiastically!👍
