The entry fee is very reasonable, the boat is very comfortable with a bar / snacks, multi levels of seating - lower floor, middle floor, and top of boat is open for unobstructed views / photos. We bought tickets there but I'm sure in the summer it's probably busier so you may consider pre-purchasing tickets then. The boat also has... More

I would like to point out that the description on Spido's website about the 75 minute tour is slightly misleading... QUOTE..Experience one of the world's largest ports in all its glory! .. UNQUOTE Usually Europort and Maasvlakte would come to mind, however the 75 min tour will take you to Eemhaven (including Beatrixhaven within). Nevertheless, you will be able to... More

This is a must to do.While you sit in site the ferry and enjoy something to eat or drink you can get a tour with the history of Rotterdam.You can also go and sit outside on a sunny day while you admire the view.

This was a nice boat tour. The boat had two levels of indoor seating, one level that was partially covered, and one that was completely open. It is wheelchair accessible, and there is food and drink available on the boat. We bought tickets at the dock. Online you can see how many tickets are left and decide whether to buy... More

We wanted to see Rotterdam from the water and imagined we would pick up some of the points of interest and history. The ship itself is very comfortable and clean with a very smooth ride. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase. The commentary is clear and the volume excellent, presented in 4 languages, but the timing of the commentary... More

This was not the typical boat tour in that you see an actual working port up close and personal. You have a beautiful view of much of the modern architecture of Rotterdam as you initially leave the dock, then you cruise by a number terminals and ships in dry dock - very fascinating.

We have done the Harbour tour and it is really good! Interesting to see the whole harbour (which is massive) from water. You will not be able to experience the harbour by any other way! Book the tour - it is very good! Nice modern, clean ship as well and the sound was very good

Actually the really interesting tours are not available every day. The harbour easily warrants a day trip. Failing the right timing as we did the regular harbour cruise is the next best alternative. Interesting explanations and sights for 1 1/2 h.

In our ignorance, and not knowing Rotterdam, we expected that this tour would take us through at least some of the vast Europort. Although interesting and a lovely relaxing 75 minute trip on a sunny afternoon we found it a little disappointing. The trip starts in the centre of the city and works its way 'upstream, giving great views of... More

This tour was a bit disappointing. The boat did not show much in terms of landmarks. Instead, it went through some shipyards and the explanations were very, very detailed: we found it a bit boring, honestly. We wouldn't have taken the tour if we had known.
