Discover the secrets of Rotterdam with a knowledgeable local guide (3hrs walk)
Get to know the city with many faces. 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.
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.
We start the walk from our meeting location (Cruise Port, Railway Station or your hotel). On our route we will visit the major sights such as the Erasmus Bridge, St Lawrence Church, the Market Hall, Old Port, Cubic Houses and the Maritime District.
