“Great boats to see the Harbour in”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Spido boats are of a high standard. The top viewing gallery allows you to see the whole of Rotterdam in comfort. We passed under the Eramus Bridge, upto the the shipyards.. I'm a bit of a geek so enjoyed seeing the boats in various states of repair. The size of them amazes you. It isn't the prettiest of tours, but its factual and interesting.. and once back into main Rotterdam, the buildings alongside the Maas are interesting too.

“Interesting visit to a very big harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We took our 2 granddaughters on this tour so they could see one of the largest ports in Europe, where so much is unloaded and sent down the Rhine. Not very exciting, but interesting. It would have been better to have a real person speaking and answering questions but they use a recorded tour in several languages, hence it is brief and there is no chance to ask questions about what is seen. No written material is provided; I think a map of the harbor would have helped with regard to seeing where the water comes from and where it goes.

“If you have enough time...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

It's a cruise on Maas river,starting from Willemsplein,at one of the Erasmus bridge end.From the ship you'll see a part of Rotterdam shipyard,some beautiful buildings on the river's banks,the SS Rotterdam museum ship,Erasmus bridge.
Combined tickets that offers you entrance at another else touristic objectives are available.
Not the most interesting thing to do in Rotterdam but,let's say,it worth the money...

“Good views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

A very reasonable price for 75mins of harbour tour allowing you to see views of Rotterdam from a different angle. The commentary I did hear was very informative and interesting

“Cruise Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

To get a very good idea of the Rotterdam harbour and its vast expansive area then a trip with Spido is recommended. The 75 minute tour we took was guided in English, French and German and of course Dutch. It was informative and interesting. €11.25 is a little high but suited me. You can sit inside and outside the vessel and drinks and snacks are available for you should you wish.
