A very nice modern bost takes you up and down the river. The highlight is definitely the port, as you see quite a few tanker ships. There is an audio guide that plays over the speakers, in 4 languages (Dutch, German, English, French), which is quite informative but suffers from the fact that by the time they get to English you've mostly passed the sight they're talking about. I still enjoyed myself, and had a very nice tea. A nice 1h30 spent on the water

A great way to see Rotterdam habour and the industry that it supports. The tour itself gives a mixture of the normal tourist attractions (like a short description of the Euromast that you can see from the water) but also some of the major container handling facilities that support a large part of business in Rotterdam.

The boat was very spacious and we passed by many of the most notorious sights in Rotterdam as well as going through part of the harbor. The explanations were interesting but sometimes with the noise from other visitors it was difficult to understand everything. I would overall recommend it.
