With a bike rental included, this tour is a great way to explore the city. Rotterdam is one of Europe’s most bike-friendly places with a large network of cycle paths and free bike shelters.
From the upper deck of a hop-on hop-off bus, you’ll admire the quintessential charm of Rotterdam, known as the Netherlands' second city. Climb aboard the bus at one of seven conveniently located stops and admire sights such as Rotterdam City Hall — a dramatic 20th-century structure — and Eramusbrug (Erasmus Bridge). As you explore, you’ll listen to informative commentary and enjoy excellent views from the upper deck of the bus.
Choose to remain on the bus for the entire 1.5-hour loop, or hop off whenever an attraction captures your attention. Perhaps disembark at Museum Park to enrich your knowledge at the Natural History Museum, or admire artistic masterpieces at Museum Boijmans va Beuningen.
In addition to your 24- or 48-hour bus ticket, you’ll receive a free 30-minute bike rental and a complimentary coffee at Markthal Rotterdam.

There was major confusion as to the bus schedule, and we had to wait close to an hour. .Once we got going, the tour was good - as a matter of fact, we went around twice.
Long wait for bus to arrive at no time was there a mention of the free coffee as stated when booked
There was only one bus running in Rotterdam on Saturday morning April 23, 2016 instead of the every 30 minutes announcement in Viator Information, so we had to wait 45 minutes before the bus finally arrived at the Rotterdam Cruise terminal which is a windy space to wait outside.
We did the tour twice without getting off the bus, and noticed that the text spoken by a live commentator was adapted to the kind of guests aboard, the first round was spoken only in Dutch, the second tour was spoken in Dutch and English as some english speaking guests had entered the bus as well. The text lines were shorter on the second part, as he had to speak more in the two languages while passing by.
The commentator was witty, and the tour was more comfortable compared to other HoHo tours with systems and earphones where you can select the languages, but most of the times those systems just don't work flawless and you have to switch to other places to get a result at your EarPods.
The negative score is really due to the fact that Viator published wrong information about the half an hour cycle. If we had known it would have run just every hour, we had no need to stand outside to wait that long on a windy corner waiting for the bus. Got a hefty cold due to that which reduced my cruise pleasure afterwards as well. You better skip the Viator Offer and just buy your ticket at the HoHo bus as soon as you see it somewhere in town.
I purchased a trip and waited for the arrival of the HOHO which never arrived. Apparently the HoHo only operates on Weekends during the winter,,,,,,,something Viator should have known. Poor.
