    In only 75 minutes, discover ROTTERDAM and all the sights is has to offer on and around the water.
    Anjoy the memorable experience of seeing the shipyards, docks and quays up close and being part of the heavy traffic of sea-going vessels and inland ships of a river that brought GLORY to ROTTERDAM. (RIVER MAAS)

    I have so much more to tell you about all the different trips this SPIDO people have in store for you but my advice is: use the URL and/or email address in case you want to know more....

    Good Luck......and I can recommend it all to you....

    SPIDO tour

    It was the first weekend in March, bitterly cold, and the boat only have full - but we enjoyed this harbour tour a lot!

    They tell you a lot about the city, its buildings, companies doing business in the harbour, they show you the docks.
    The tell you about bananas and coffee, pirates and captains, and and and.

    The tour is a must if you're in Rotterdam.

    Tour is done in 4 languages (Dutch, German, English, French), and they serve meals and drinks.

    The harbour tour is excellent, as I have done it recently (I live close to rotterdam for 22 years, and only this year I took the tour). You get a impression of the biggest harbour in the world. There are a few tours that you can take, night tours, combination tours with museums. So something for everybody.
    It is the biggest harbour in the world, and by taking the tour you will know why, so don't miss it

    harbour tour: there are several companies that offer harbour tours in comfortable ships. This tour is a must when you come to Rotterdam as a tourist. Only by doing it you can realise how big this harbour is. From the Maas river you can also admire Rotterdam's skyline and bridges. You can see more pictures in my Bridges in Rotterdam.

    At the 'Boompjes' near the Nieuwe Maas, you can embark for a 1 hour boattrip along the harbour on what is called the 'Spido' boat.

    I am about to call it Speedo boat because of his smooth speeding up the water '-)

    The one on the picture is baptized : 'mps Abel Tasman'

    Year of construction: 2000

    Construction number: 380

    Warf of construction: De Hoop, Lobith b.v.
    Very comfortable boat. You can sit inside and on open deck.
    Coating of the round tables are maps of the harbour area so you can easily follow the track the boat is taking you, while you listen to a taped voice, explaining in 4 languages all details.
    LOL even the Mayor of Rotterdam has his introduction on this tape in 4 different languages (to the astonishment of some of our VT members hehehe).

    Take a Spido boat and tour the harbor!
    This huge ship holds up to 599 people and has a bar and restaurant on board. There are several floors, but if you sit out in the open be prepared to be rained on! Take a jacket also, because it can be cold once the boat gets moving.

    Take a 'Spido' boat and cruise around the port of Rotterdam.
    After all this is the biggest port of Europe so there's a lot to see. Unfortunately when I was there there weren't many ships in the port and the tour only goes to Europoort, the biggest part of the port, in summer.
