Among the busy traffic of sea-going and inland ships, this trip is a special journey through one of the largest harbours in the world.

An exciting 75 minutes with clear descriptions of everything you see.
Why a boat tour in the Port area of Rotterdam?
During the tour you will experience Rotterdam as it is: raw and industrial. With a surface area of more than 12,600 hectares, the port of Rotterdam is the largest in Europe and the period of growth is far from over. The port is definitely not boring and ugly. It is the beating heart of the region. The tour takes you through the history and the current status of the port of Rotterdam.
During the cruise you will have a beautiful view of the impressive skyline of Rotterdam. Of all the striking features of Rotterdam, the architecture is perhaps the most impressive. Almost no two buildings are the same, but it has not always been like that.
Rotterdam, the second largest city of the Netherlands, looks nothing like the other Dutch cities. This change in appearance is the result of the bombing during the Second World War. Instead of rebuilding a copy of the city, it was decided to build a totally new, modern city - something Rotterdam did with great enthusiasm. Everything - from the swan-shaped Erasmus Bridge to the imposing high-rise buildings - is worth seeing and will be covered on the tour.
