Excellent architectural walk in Rotterdam with well-informed architect

Silvia led us on a three-hour plus walking tour of Rotterdam exploring the destruction of the city by bombs in WWII and the evolution of architectural styles and choices to redevelop the city. Silvia's focus on the design and functions was a mini-course in the reasons for decisions made by architects and city planners. We learned many nuances that would have otherwise escaped our notice. For example, she pointed out the lights embedded in the sidewalks that at night outline from above the section of the city that was destroyed by the bombing, thus bearing witness to that event. Along the way we learned a great deal about life in the Netherlands today and in the past. Our group of five was able to linger in some locations, ask questions, and engage in lively conversation. Silvia is an excellent guide. Highly recommended.

Very interesting - even for architecture dummies

Especially in this deeply designed and elaborate city, learning about the backgrounds and the architectural viewpoint, by joining this tour, is really advisable. Tania led us through all of the modern city center from central station to Maas riverbank and gave us just the right amount and kind of information, adjusted to our non-existent architecture knowledge. We also didn't have to miss any advise for restaurants, attractions and things to do, so it was a nice introduction to Rotterdam. I recommend it to everyone, who likes to walk and get a step deeper into this stylish city.

Unconventional, captivating tour by foot through Rotterdam

Mik took us on a captivating, special tour, packed with unconventional facts and stories. He knows a great deal about ecological and architectural things and gave us a look behind the scene and on the characteristics of Rotterdam. He gladly responded to all our questions and we felt that we had truly learnt something about Rotterdam. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and we could not believe the time went by so fast. We highly recommend Mik to all people who are tired of boring, standardized tours and are rather looking for an informative and entertaining tour!

Very good guide but some of the guests...not so!

Pietre was a very good guide...easy to understand and very knowledgeable. We did enjoy the tour but were disappointed that we missed much of the Hague (International Court) because ignorant guests don't follow instructions as to when to return to the bus. We do think that Pietre should have enforced the time restriction even if it meant leaving people behind. The rest of us paid for a tour that, because of a few inconsiderate guests, was incomplete.

It was very interesting, the guides were great!!

Thank you so much, Tania and Astrid, it was a pleasant morning with a lot of interesting sightseeing. All of our group were happy and had a good time, guided by you. You were so smart and nice, everything was ok. We wish you a lot of clients and much success. Kind regards Karen and all "Turnis" - the name of our sportsgroup;-)
