Discover the secrets of Rotterdam by bike (3hrs ride)
Get to know the city in a very Dutch way: by bicycle. On this tour you will see the major sights in the centre of Rotterdam. I will fill you in on the history of the city, from its humble beginnings as a fishing village to the major port on a global scale it is today. You will see how old and new get on harmoniously side by side. New architectural works of art next to some centuries old houses and churches that survived. You will hear some interesting anecdotes as we will also visit some lesser known spots that will give you a different and surprising new perspective on Rotterdam and its people. The bicycle allows us to cover a wider area than would be possible on foot, but still gets you that in depth feeling for the city.
As your private tour guide, I can adjust the schedule, duration and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special requests you have.
The tour will include both historical sights and examples of modern architecture Rotterdam is famous for: St Lawrence Church, Market Hall, Old Port, Cubic Houses, Maritime Quarter, South Bank Docklands, The Park, Historic Delfshaven district and Central Railway Station.

Eddy was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. He designed this tour for us and it was delightful and exactly met my desires. He was very patient with less confident riders. On my bucket list was a bicycle ride in the Netherlands.....it was wonderful. I would book with Eddy again.
