Super fun bike tour through Rotterdam. This tour takes you to the lesser-known places in Rotterdam, which are worth visiting for that very reason. The snacks along the way are unique and delicious. Paul knows a lot about Rotterdam, this also applies to Simone. This tour should definitely be at the top of your list when you visit Rotterdam

We had a very nice bike tour last Saturday. The guide told everything very clearly, cycled along many beautiful places. She took her time. In between she told us about sights that we didn't pass and that are worth a visit. The bikes were fine.

Great tour. For us there is no better way of a city tour. You can see so much by bike and still stop and learn something every now and then.

Prima en leuke informatie, verteld op een enthousiaste manier door gids Erik. Fietstour is goed te doen, zelfs met 2 klimmetjes.

Super fun, interesting and pleasant bike ride to get to know Rotterdam in a different way. Nice background information too!!
