Great experience, well worth it
The private tour with the phone app Questo was great! I really enjoyed visiting the sites and learning the history of the city. I think the trip could've been longer, stretching from Centraal Station all the way to the Euromast. It made the exploration of the city a lot of fun. Most of the clues were understandable and easily solved. A couple were a little difficult, but manageable with some help. I really liked the word puzzles and I think there could've been more puzzles with some of signs around the Cube Homes and bridges. I wish it were longer!! Awesome experience.

Private Tour: Rotterdam Walking Tour Including Harbor Cruise
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.

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!

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.

Private Tour: Rotterdam Walking Tour Including Harbor Cruise
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.

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!

Private Tour: Rotterdam Walking Tour Including Harbor Cruise
Our tour guide, Raphael, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He waited for us in the rain as we were running late...we were very relieved to still find him there. Luckily our weather cleared up. He is a native of Rotterdam and was able to apply personal anecdotes from his own upbringing to make our tour even more interesting. After the crazy hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, Rotterdam is a nice change of pace, and architecture. Wide, spotlessly clean streets, very sleek and modern. We thoroughly enjoyed our time getting to know Rotterdam and Raphael. Hope to return someday!

Private Tour: Rotterdam Walking Tour Including Harbor Cruise
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.
