A multi-faceted city with layers of history, Rotterdam is one of the most intriguing cities in the Netherlands. This customizable private walking tour reveals Rotterdam’s true character, from its reconstruction after World War II to its busy cargo port, the largest in the world. Admire the city’s modern architecture, like the eye-catching Cubic Houses, against aging buildings that survived the war, like the old town hall. Stroll around the Old Harbor (Oude Haven), see Rotterdam Central Station, Markthal Rotterdam, Kunsthal museum and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, and end with a relaxing cruise along Rotterdam Harbor.

I love history, so learning about Rotterdam and its rise from the aftermath of WW 2 was so intriguing to me. Be prepared, it's a lot of walking, but I'm so glad I did it!

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and can't thank VIATOR enough for providing an extrordinary guide to show us Rotterdam and answer just about every question we had. Our guide, a true professional who at one point was one of the top Program Directors for a famed river cruise line, met us early at the Rotterdam train station, our starting point, and proceded to guide us through a city whose rebuilding after Nazi bombing flattened it in the invasion of 1940 is one of the architectural rebuilding miracles of post World War Two Europe. Anyone. visiting the Netherlands who fails to take an educational walking tour like this is missing one of the great experiences of being a tourist.

Highly recommend walking tour and harbor cruise with Viator's guide Jacob in Rotterdam. Grab your best walking shoes! We covered almost four miles. Jacob's English was perfect (of course he speaks five languages). His knowledge of Rotterdam was awesome and we saw many off the beaten path spots as well as the biggies. He paced the route perfectly for us and never failed to display humor and a pleasing personality. Our favorite port made even better with the tour by Jacob!

My tour-guide was knowledgeable about history, architecture, etc. and personable. He tailored the walking tour around me. For example, he said many people were more interested in the markets, but when he saw I wasn't interested in shopping, he adjusted accordingly. The harbor cruise was a fitting end to the tour.

Was a good experience. Anthony was a very good professional with a perfect knowledge of the town and the infornation about it. Besides his high professional skills he was also a nice person. I absolutely recommend him as a tourist guide and wish him a very good luck.

Anthony was very informative and gave us the history of the mostly modern city. The harbor cruise was a nice relaxing way to end the walking tour.

The tour was great! We had only one day in Rotterdam and this was an excellent way to learn about the city. Anthony was very knowledgeable and gave us a good overview of Rotterdam history and architecture. He was personable and professional and a wonderful tour guide! We highly recommend!

Well worth doing.

This private tour was just excellent. Be aware that it is all walking except for the harbor ride at the end. Lots of information on how the city developed and the various cultures. The shopping mall was extremely impressive. Our guide was perfect. When I can get to her card, I will be sending her an appreciative note.

Fascinating architectural walking tour, and restful harbor tour was welcome after. Guide was very responsive, but could have initiated sharing more information.
• Submitted 04 Jun 2015
The tour guide was excellent. It was nice to see the remaining old and the new of Rotterdam. The harbour part of the tour was very good also but it would have been nice to see more of this. My husband enjoyed this part the most.
