Had a very enjoyable tour with Vanessa

Our group of 5 had a great time with Vanessa who took us around and showed us the Rotterdam highlights. Meeting up was simple, and after we discussed what we wanted to see, we headed out. It was a hot day, so that slowed us down just a bit. Very enjoyable - thank you Vanessa!

Simply fantastic!

I thought I knew the city well, but Mik soon proved the opposite. Beautiful, impressive, but sometimes sad stories about the rich history and future of the city and the melting pot of cultures that Rotterdam houses. Wonderful and told by a passionate guide! Tribute! We will definitely come back, because we have not finished learning yet!
