Guides tour with a guide that told very little
Sep 2021
During Wereldhavendagen, 4 sept. start 13.30 h.
Guide did not check tickets. No Corona check.
Guide not interested in group, cycling to heyplaat, Quarantaine Island and Waalhaven.
For a guided harbour tour the young guide explained very little and was mainly interested in getiing the group of 15 back on time in Rotterdam. We paid € 19,- p/p/ for this trip, it was very disapointing.

Dear Albert, Thank you very much for your review. Your feedback is much appreciated and we take this very seriously. We regret this tour didn't meet your expectations and wishes. We will evaluate the tour and discuss if further steps are necessary. In reaction to some of the points you mention. As the space and time we have at the meeting point is limited, and because we know how many people should be on the tour, we sometimes decide not to immeditately check the tickets, but check only if necessary and the total amount doesnt add up. As for the Corona check. This bike tour is in the open air and it's easy to keep distance. It was not necessary nor obligatory to have a CoronaCheck for this tour. Regarding the amount of information explained and the speed of the tour. We regret that you felt rushed and didnt get a satisfactory amount of information. The success of a tour depends on many factors. We try to accomodate everyone's wishes and sense if the group wants more or less info, wants to go faster or can't go that fast. All to ensure a quality experience. Nevertheless the needs and wants of a group can differ greatly between the participants. Thank you again for your feedback and we will evaulate this tour with the guide to see what we can improve for our next tours. All best, Ariane

The half-day harbor tour didn't have enough people and we joined the city tour instead. Ariane informed us right after our booking and we were happy to join the city tour.
It is a great way to get to know the city if you are only spending 1 to 2 days in Rotterdam. Ariane took us around all parts of the city, showed us the hidden areas and told us the history of how the city reconstructed itself from the bombing of WWII. Truly informative and I think it is the best way rather than walking by yourself and not knowing what you are actually seeing. Also since Dutch people cycle a lot and there are more bikes than people, cycling tour also adds another alternative aspect to the journey :) Highly recommended!

Good tour around Rotterdam harbor
Apr 2018 • Couples
We enjoyed our bike tour around Rotterdam harbor very much. It starts from Rotterdam Central Station. Then you ride across Erasmus Bridge, to the south part, take a ferry, pass through what once was workers village, and then you finally reach the tip of the harbor, which is huge. Then you ride back to Central Station through the tunnel.
Ariane was an excellent guide. Highly recommend the tour, but you should be in biking shape to take it.

My name is Joshua Brenton and I had the opportunity to take this tour during a Study Abroad with Purdue University for Dr. Jim Tanoos’s class. Seriously, if you are in Rotterdam, this bike tour is an absolute must! Our tour guide, Ariane Nooteboom, was very knowledgeable, fun, and nice. She knew so much of the city’s history and of Dutch history as well. Prior to this tour, I had not ridden a bike in about 15 years, but one truly never forgets. Beware of the trams and pedestrians! I discovered during this tour that in Holland, 99% of vehicles will allow a biker the right-of-way, but bikers must allow pedestrians the right of way and trams stop for no one. In my Samsung health history, this particular day in Rotterdam was the most productive day in a three month stretch, where I lost 50 pounds.
The city, when walking or riding in taxis, is beautiful! But, our group saw three times more of the city in half a day on this tour than we did in three and a half days of walking around the city and in taxis. Not to mention, the tour takes you around bike paths all over the port, to a beautiful pier with a great view, and even to a secret, hidden beach, unknown even to locals. Riding across the Erasmus bridge was fun, especially going downhill. And, perhaps the most fun part was the Benelux cycling tunnel, just wow! Ariane told us to make sure we pick up plenty of speed in the first half. That was no joke! However, by the halfway point in the tunnel, we were all going about 40 mph on our bikes and the ascent was very easy and gradual. Locals have fun in the tunnel, singing songs together loudly to hear them echo and yelling festive sayings in Dutch and English. They also say hello to just about everyone, in fact, all of Rotterdam is very friendly! It is hands down the most friendly place I have ever been, many US cities considered. If you are in Rotterdam, make sure to do this tour, I can’t say it enough.

You Can't Go Wrong with Inside Rotterdam
May 2017 • Business
I'm a faculty member for Purdue University, USA and lead a Study Abroad through four cities in Europe each May. In the creation of the Study Abroad, this tour came to mind and it convinced me to schedule Rotterdam last on our trip. I've always found the city a true gem of the continent, and in my time there, I grew to consider this tour the best experience for a visitor. Ariane is willing to customize the trip to fit your needs, and she knows not only so much interesting history of the city but also some of the current young leaders that have made it so progressive and innovative.

My students were not disappointed and thanks to Inside Rotterdam and the beauty of the city, 80% of the students considered the experience their favorite of all the cities we visited in Europe. We'll be back soon!!
