    Omdat er afzeggingen waren, kregen wij een privé tour van Astrid, een enthousiaste gids met veel kennis en passie voor de stad. Leuke tour in de markthal. Proeverij (hoeveelheid) stelt niet veel voor, maar was wel lekker! De marktkoopman vertelt over zijn koopwaar, wat wij wel interessant vonden. Uitzicht vanaf het witte huis was prachtig! Daarna de kubuswoningen bekeken. Met meer achtergrondinfo kijk je er toch weer anders naar.

    I am disappointed, because I was expecting a good guide who, in addition to the facts (not read from the sheet), spreads some of my enthusiasm for Rotterdam and can come up with information that you cannot find yourself in the travel guide (book) or the Internet. We were only at 1 place that you cannot visit independently (whether I have to see the underground car park for suppliers !?) The tasting at the chocolate stand was a promotional event and, for me, had nothing to do with Rotterdam. What a shame, money thrown away. Another guide and the tour may be good.
