This was a very small group, only 5 of us so it was almost a private tour. Juliette was our guide and she was great, she provided us with loads of information about the places we visited and the history and the life in general. As we were a small group we had extra walking stops in Rotterdam (markethall and cube houses) and in the Hague (Parliament) which weren't in the itinerary which was great. I'd recommend introducing a walking tour in Rotterdam and the Hague at the expanse of the harbour tour which could be omitted. Highlight was definitely Delft, which is amazing. Thanks Julitte and Jan (the driver).
The tour itself was nice, interesting especially if you like to know a bit about the big Rotterdam harbour and see some containers around. It doesn't go very technical, so it's easy to follow. The boat is well equipped with indoor and outdoor seats. However it was still cold inside.Loudspeakers comment some sights in Dutch, German, English and French. We knew there was no Spanish audio-guide, but it was said there would be some brochure - this was non-existing.
It was a great tour. Despite the weather being rough and it raining almost the entire day our tour guide Eva made sure we make the most of our trip and visit every place planned for us. She was energetic and interactive with all of us on board. The driver Peter too was kind and polite. The only recommendation I would give, is to have us see more of Rotterdam city instead of the cruise ride that is booked for an hour. Thank you for the experience!
It was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny. However, Get Your Guide as a third party operator did not deliver well. It gave the instructions to meet at the A’Dam tower but the spot was at This is Holland (the building behind A’Dam). We spoke to the guy from the tour company who informed us that they were struggling to get Get Your Guide to change the instructions. This almost made us miss our tour.
We had to miss the Hague government buildings due to some protest in the city. Also lots of traffic due to this. But overall an enjoyable day trip. Evelin was lovely and quite patient with a few guest who were constantly late. Go for it if u enjoy harbours, history, blue pottery and miniature museums!
