So enjoyable and memorable

We recently spent a week in Rotterdam and after some online research we decided to book the Food Tour with Inside Rotterdam. It was an excellent decision --- Ariane, our guide, met us at the Markthal, an amazing & fascinating new landmark building, and from there she took us through several stops in the centre of the city. We got to try various local delicacies (including freshly-made stroopwaffels, luscious chocolates, delicious Surinamese street-food, wonderful samples of local cheese and of course the legendary Dutch herring) and Ariane put all of this in the context of the city's history. She was a great guide -- helpful, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. As well as the actual tour, she gave us further recommendations for shops and restaurants. All in all, it was one of the highlights of our trip & she is a great ambassador for the city. This tour gets a 100% recommendation from us.

A delight!

Our Food tour was a delight, it felt like we had combined all possible kinds of tours together: highlights, food, architecture, history, one of us was biking due to some physical issue so it was also a biking tour :) she explained everything with passion and knowledge and you notice that she cares about your stay in Rotterdam.

Tasting Dutch specialities

We visited Rotterdam for a couple of days and we booked the Food tour at the first day living to see an "Insider" start in this lovely, modern and oscillating city. Ariane is a very likeable and enthusiastic guide who knows so much about Rotterdam. The shown places and walked pathes, learning about history, present and the future of Rotterdam, were selected best. Crossing the city, meanwhile tasting dutch specialties was a fantastic access to meet Dutch Culture.
