As Amsterdammers we have experienced this very nice by getting a real Rotterdammer a tour in your beautiful clean city. The explanation about the city was innovative for us. And Willem from the center to the Euromast was 35 min walk IPV 1 1/2 hours. And from the Euromast to the SS Rotterdam was a 65 minute walk.

Great tour if you are still completely unfamiliar with Rotterdam. Walked through Rotterdam together with enthusiastic guide Willem. Heard and seen a lot and luckily, even in this limited corona time, we were able to view a number of buildings from the inside... and the extra long ride in the water taxi was also an experience! On top of the White Roof we had a beautiful view... We also got some good tips for the rest of the day! Unfortunately, we couldn't enter the Cube House now, but otherwise it will not be part of the tour. Great experience, thank you Willem for the pleasant and informative time. Two and a half hours flew by!

Nice to explore Rotterdam on this tour. The tour lasts exactly long enough, interesting to learn about the buildings and their history. I expected that the water taxi ride would take longer, but you will literally sail to the other side. Which is also nice, but unfortunately that takes less than 5 minutes ;-)
