    Nice to explore Rotterdam on this tour. The tour lasts exactly long enough, interesting to learn about the buildings and their history. I expected that the water taxi ride would take longer, but you will literally sail to the other side. Which is also nice, but unfortunately that takes less than 5 minutes ;-)

    Great tour, only the program ended a bit at the end of the market hall. The planned conversation with an entrepreneur is nice, but if you have to wait long because the trade, logically, the enthusiasm becomes a bit less. I would dress this point a little more effectively. Furthermore, the knowledge about Rotterdam and the history is certainly extensive.

    Als Amsterdammers hebben wij dit erg leuk ervaren door een echte Rotterdammer een toer te krijgen, in jullie mooie schone stad. De uitleg over de stad was voor ons vernieuwdend. En Willem vanuit het centrum naar de Euromast was 35 min lopen IPV 1 1/2 uur. En van de Euromast naar de SS Rotterdam was 65 min lopen.
