A Truly Beautiful City!

Our family booked an afternoon bike tour with Ariane as our guide. It was probably to coldest day while in Rotterdam but we had prepared for the trip. Ariane customized the tour taking into account that we were really interested in exploring the various cuisines and seeing the sights around the city. We had the opportunity to explore the Markthal and Fenix Food Factory. Highly recommended! Of course the sights are stunning as well! Looking forward to a return visit.

Really informative guide

Really informative guide - thanks Ariane - lots of information provided that other Rotterdam tours didn't give us. This has been a highlight of our six weeks away from home travelling Europe. So good to be getting some physical activity while understanding the city, it's history and current lifestyle. We highly recommend this tour. We now have places we want to return to in our time to sit and soak up the atmosphere, Great experience Ariane.

GREAT tour

We had a fabulous tour with our guide Hassan. There was a small group of us (8 in all), freshly arrived in Rotterdam, and we thought a bike tour would be the best way to orient ourselves to the city. We did the basic introductory tour, which lasted about 2.5 hours. Hassan took us on a fabulous and well-informed journey across bridges and canals, to islands and markets. It was really wonderful! Despite Amsterdam's reputation, Rotterdam is a much better biking city. And we highly recommend taking a tour through Inside Rotterdam and with Hassan.
