Enjoy the city from the water. With a boat tour, you can enjoy the modern skyline of Rotterdam and get a sense of the largest port of Europe. For visitors who have limited time, there are short tours that show you the highlights of the city. When there is more time to visit, you could join a dinner cruise or board one of the day cruises.
The 75-minute harbour tour is the most popular tour of Spido and is a highly-recommended and classic tourist attraction. With this tour, you will pass through the most familiar surroundings of Rotterdam a get a good sense of the once busy port area. Spido has existed for more than 100 years and currently has six tour vessels.
Besides the harbour tour, Spido offers a large number of day tours. During the summer season, you can join day cruises to places like the Dutch delta works in Zeeland or the fortified city Willemsstad. And all year round, Spido organises day trips to Tweede Maasvlakte, where the largest (container) ships of the world are handled.
In Rotterdam, you can sail on the river on a bus. Dutch students developed a new type of vehicle, that can be used on the road and water. With Splash Tours, you can experience a unique tour in this special vehicle. During the 60 minute tour, you will see a part of the city centre, and sail along SS Rotterdam and the skyline of Kop van Zuid.
Close to Rotterdam, you can find one of The Netherlands most popular tourist attractions: The windmills of Kinderdijk. The old traditional windmills and the beautiful landscape are on UNESCO's list of World Heritage.
We think a boat tour is the best way to get to Kinderdijk. From the start of spring, until late in autumn, Rebus organises boat tours to Kinderdijk. Onboard, employees give a clear description of the surroundings. At Kinderdijk, you will have 1,5 hours of free time to enjoy the beautiful scenery.Back to Home Back to Activities
