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

What a great tour, well worth the money. The sites visited, the time we got to walk around on our own at every stop, the info given by the main guide that was with us as well as the guides at the stops were all just great! We stopped at least once in all three cities; Hague, Delft, and Rotterdam.

Our guide was very friendly and well informed, and provided a good all round sense of the city and its history. Though English was her third language - she spoke naturally and well.

Interesting, the captain/courier gave an informed commentary through out the tour. Thanks
