We are part of an Architectural Practice from Dublin and our visit was intended to take in the most recent developments in Rotterdam. I had lived there between 1979-1982 and the developments over a short span was enormous. From the redevelopment of the train station as an Iconic building in a short period to the Markthal building and the new high rise office building De Rotterdam made for an interesting architectural with the historic footnotes added. Anet was a great host and interesting with her comments and observations with her added book material to illustrate her points with regard to history and place. The tour itself can only cover a small part of the architectural past that is Rotterdam but lots of exciting building are in the pipeline for a progressive city. The water taxi ride was novel to us and an interesting break form the architectural jargon which may be alien to some tourists.
Very interesting tour with guides on each point of interest (English speaking). A boat shuttle system will take you to visit the 3 mills (every 1/2 hour). A fun film with French subtitles will explain the life of the millers and the system that allowed Holland to avoid flooding.
My grandson 15 years and I were thrilled with the 9 stations you could complete. The museum harbor was also interesting. He learned various sailor knots on a ship. He was very proud. A great day for us.
We had problems in finding a parking place respectively a parking garage due to the bad signage (in the end we succeeded). We saw lovely details.
Nice guide, good explanation and beautiful view of the tower!
