Tania did a great job! She really knows her materials! I. Would definitely tour with her again. She made us forget just how cold it was the day we took her tour in January.

We really enjoyed our time with the tour guide. She was smart, very interesting, and personable. We saw a lot of the city and learned about its history and culture. Would gladly take the tour again!

We loved this tour with Sonia, a local architect. Sonia greeted us at the Rotterdam train station and showed us around the rebuilt downtown district, explaining as we went interesting points about urban design and the context of rebuilding this major port city after its destruction in WWII. Great tour.
