What people are saying about Rotterdam

Really good tour. Would recommend to anyone visiting Rotterdam. Had some lovely food on the way, whilst discovering more about the geography and history of the city. Paul had been great at communicating prior to the tour and went out of his way to make sure the tour went ahead after some of his team went off sick. In fact he gave up his afternoon and became our guide. He was brilliant. Well done Paul! Great company, long may it continue!

What a fantastic place. A wonderful venue with great spaces inside and out. Our guide Rhian was brilliant, she was friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a true asset to the company. Great to hear they are keen on keeping the heritage of the building alive and so committed to running a sustainable business. The best part... they brew great beer which you get to taste, all served up with a bite to eat.

Paul led our tour. Was a great itinerary- some amazing areas and restaurants in Rotterdam. Rooftop restaurant and garden were unexpected. Every place we visited was excellent. Water taxi ride was fun. Highly recommend this tour.

Paul led our group - was a great overview of the city and all the different food options. Started with a restaurant with a rooftop garden. Every stop was great and the food was excellent.

Well put together and interesting tour. I’m still dreaming about the foods we tried. The fresh herring, OMG! ;-) Really enjoyable afternoon. Thanks!
