What people are saying about Rotterdam

Fue un tour muy bueno pues visitamos dos ciudades y tuvimos tiempo para hacer visitas guiadas. El guia (Blas) tenia mucho conocimiento y muy buen sentido del humor lo que hizo el tour mas agradable. El guia recomendo un restaurante para almorzar y fue una excelente recomendacion pues nos dieron platos con mucha comida a precios modicos. Lo unico que recomedaria es que antes de llegar a las iglesias u otros lugares, se informara que si uno quiere entrar y apreciar la belleza del lugar hay que pagar y que se dara cierta cantidad de tiempo, o que el guia compre una entrada de grupo que era mas barata. En mas de dos ocasiones solo llegamos a la entrada del lugar y el guia nos dijo que vieramos desde la puerta o desde el lobby el interior de la iglesia. Me hubiera gustado mas que el guia nos hubiera llevado al interior de la iglesia y apreciar el arte y arquitectura del lugar. Aunque al hacer esto, hubieramos necesitado mas tiempo. Por lo demas todo estubo perfecto y Blas es super !

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.

This was a very small group, only 5 of us so it was almost a private tour. Juliette was our guide and she was great, she provided us with loads of information about the places we visited and the history and the life in general. As we were a small group we had extra walking stops in Rotterdam (markethall and cube houses) and in the Hague (Parliament) which weren't in the itinerary which was great. I'd recommend introducing a walking tour in Rotterdam and the Hague at the expanse of the harbour tour which could be omitted. Highlight was definitely Delft, which is amazing. Thanks Julitte and Jan (the driver).

Während 2,5 Stunden vermochte es Willem, unser Guide, seine Begeisterung für Rotterdam mit uns zu teilen. Viele kleine Details und Anmerkungen machten diesen Rundgang zu einem tollen Erlebnis. Jedem zu empfehlen, der einen Einblick in Geschichte und städtischer Entwicklung bekommen möchte. Wir haben jede Minute genossen.

We had to miss the Hague government buildings due to some protest in the city. Also lots of traffic due to this. But overall an enjoyable day trip. Evelin was lovely and quite patient with a few guest who were constantly late. Go for it if u enjoy harbours, history, blue pottery and miniature museums!
