What people are saying about Rotterdam

Great city tour with a focus on three breweries. Therefore, the city is a bit neglected, but you can see a lot from Rotterdam. The water taxi rides also bring a different perspective of the city. Since we were in Rotterdam with friends for a weekend, this tour was perfect for us. I advise against this if you are planning a more detailed tour of Rotterdam. Our guide Willem was a perfect match for our 8-strong group, and I would like to give him great praise. A real Rotterdam veteran got us through the day in a refreshing and nice way. There were also tips for further evening planning.

Warm welcome from a very friendly employee. It was special to hear and see how much Heineken meant to especially Crooswijk and what kind of social entrepreneur the Heineken family was/is. Beer also tasted great. Recommended!

What a fantastic tour this was! Our guide Thomas really made it a great afternoon. He knows everything about Rotterdam, but also a lot about beer and good cafes. The water taxis are also highly recommended to experience.

It was super interesting! The tour guy was amazing! But the best part was the food and beer! 100% recommend!

very good experience, we learned a lot. On the other hand, no visit in French, therefore taken in English.
