This is quite a late review. We are happy to make this extra activity visiting Rotterdam with Harbour tour by Spido. The whole experience was wonderful. The location is very easy to find. We made sure that we bought our tickets ahead of time. There were really no line up and waiting time. The ship is big and very clean. Staffs are very helpful and courteous. The entire tour lasts 1 hr with multilingual guide overhead. Very interesting tour and learned a lot about their ever growing harbour. We visited in the beginning of April, so it is a bit cold but the whole tour was wonderful.

Good tour of the harbour: in 45min the experience covers the essentials - and that's enough. On a sunny day it was nice and informative. The staff was nice, the boat was good. We sat on the deck, where most people sat. Plenty nice photos to take.

If you are really interested in shipping history, you will like it. Nice that it has information in dutch, German, English, and french. The tour goes one route, there and back so you see the same things on the way to and from.

Pretty nice little trip. Boat was spotless, staff very friendly and it was cool to see the harbour up close. I just wish there had been more commentary. It just felt like little snippets due to them having to be repeated in 4 languages and I left feeling like I didn't know that much more about the port than when I boarded. Even a QR code to scan with more detailed explanations would have been helpful.

A wonderful way to explore Rotterdam's water ways and the history behind it! Its a treat when the weather is great. You have an option to go to the top level to lose yourself in the mesmerising experience but to be honest you will still have an awesome experience at the bottom while having an option of sipping a cup of cappuccino. Overall, an experience worth the money spent.
