See the best of Rotterdam, the Netherlands’ dynamic second city, on this private 3-hour walking tour. With your own personal guide, you’ll get a glimpse into the city’s past, present and future as you explore top sights and architectural highlights such as the Old Harbor, the cutting-edge Rotterdam Market Hall (Markthal) and Rotterdam Central Station. In addition to the services of a private guide, this tour includes admission to the city’s iconic cube houses.
Meet your guide at your Rotterdam hotel or the prearranged central meeting point, and then set off to begin your private tour of the city's top architectural and cultural sights.
Learn about Rotterdam’s past and present as you take in some of the city’s landmark buildings, including Rotterdam Centraal Station; the Old Harbor, or Oude Haven, which dates back to 1350; and the SS Rotterdam, a former ocean liner and cruise ship that’s been converted into a hotel.
Roughly halfway through your tour, you’ll stop for refreshments (own expense) in Rotterdam Market Hall (Markthal), the jewel in the city’s architectural crown. Then, continue to the eye-catching cube houses (Kubuswoningen) and make use of your included admission to the complex’s kijk-kubus (show-cube), a house museum designed to give you a feel of what life is like in a cube house.
After three hours, your private tour concludes in central Rotterdam.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
We had great weather the day we visited which makes a walking tour an ideal option. The tour starts at Rotterdam Centraal and takes a good pace noodling through the city and docks area. Guide, Tony, is enthusiastic and knowledgeable and has thought through what might be interesting for his groups. He includes lots of local knowledge and takes you to places off the standard tourist trail. His English is good too! We were drawn to this tour for the emphasis on the architecture which is unique to Rotterdam and how the city is rebuilding itself as opposed to the traditional historical or sight-seeing tours. There is a short stop at the markets for a sit and refreshment if you want. It gives you a bit of time to really appreciate this novel building. We also very much enjoyed the short peek inside the cube house. Something completely different! Highly recommend this tour. Wear appropriate walking shoes!
Our tour guide was terrific. We had a wonderful time. Tony is an excellent guide, very informative and funny. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Our guide did an outstanding job! He was able to answer all our questions and gave some great suggestions for other activities in Rotterdam! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
Easy town to walk. Tour could have started with pre war history, maybe something about original inhabitants. Guide was extremely cordial. Market hall was great. Cube houses are nice on outside not worth going in. Overall it was ok. If your in Rotterdam, it is a good way to learn the city.
