Can I reserve the tour for more than 4 people?2022-04-08T13:16:01+00:00

Our booking system allows reservations for a maximum of 4 people per booking. Our experience shows us that other attendees appreciate smaller groups within the tour. It keeps the tour up to speed and it’s easier to make new friends between smaller groups. We kindly ask you to respect this.

If you are visiting with a larger group, consider booking a Private Walking Tour of Rotterdam. You will have full attention of your own guide and it leaves more space for improvisation during the tour.

Still wish to join a Free Tour with a group larger than 4 people? If we have enough availability, you can make multiple reservations in our booking system under the same name and email address.

Why is a tour date/time not available in the booking calendar?2022-04-08T13:12:20+00:00

All tours for this date are fully booked. Please consider another date or time to come and see Rotterdam.

If you really want to come on this date and have a larger group, consider taking a Private Walking Tour of Rotterdam. You can enjoy Rotterdam with your own private guide!

Join the next tour and discover Rotterdam through the eyes of a local!

Experience the European harbor capital in a unique way, combining futuristic architecture with an explosive history. Founded as a small fisherman’s village 800 years ago, Rotterdam grew into a powerful industrial force due to its strategic location alongside the big European rivers. On May 14th 1940, the city centre was destroyed by German bombs. Unshakeable -like its people-, the city rose from its ashes to become the cultural hub it is today. Join the next tour, every day at 13:30 (1:30pm). Saturday we run an extra morning tour at 10:30(am).

Great tour! A really fun, informative tour with Bram as our wonderful guide. We came to Rotterdam knowing almost nothing about the city. Bram's love of and passion for the city was contagious and made us want to spend more time there. Would recommend to anyone visiting Rotterdam!

A very pleasant afternoon trip around Rotterdam I had a very good time exploring Rotterdam with this free tour. Our guide, Peter, was showing us around, bringing with himself laminated historical pictures and maps, so we can better imagine the story of the site that we were currently viewing. The trip was at a very leisure pace, filled with lighthearted jokes, anecdotes and curious information about what makes Rotterdam special.
