A comfortable and interesting way to see the business end of Rotterdam. The coffee and cake cost extra, although this is not clear from the ad. After the tour, walk two docks down to take a water taxi back into town if you haven't already done that. The guide's English presentation goes by too quickly, given his thick accent.

Was a lot of fun and a lot of info, the pity is when the guide is explaining in your language that the other people speaking other language start talking. The explanation could also be a bit louder, my 80 year old mother couldn't understand everything, even with the buzz of others in between.

Even if you have to be aware that you only see a fraction of the port, what you get to see is very impressive and you can imagine the real dimensions! Even as a German you get everything explained via audio guide. The crew is very friendly and makes the trip super nice. Food and drink can be bought on board.
