As Amsterdammers we have experienced this very nice by getting a real Rotterdammer a tour in your beautiful clean city. The explanation about the city was innovative for us. And Willem from the center to the Euromast was 35 min walk IPV 1 1/2 hours. And from the Euromast to the SS Rotterdam was a 65 minute walk.

Nice to explore Rotterdam on this tour. The tour lasts exactly long enough, interesting to learn about the buildings and their history. I expected that the water taxi ride would take longer, but you will literally sail to the other side. Which is also nice, but unfortunately that takes less than 5 minutes ;-)

Great tour, only the program ended a bit at the end of the market hall. The planned conversation with an entrepreneur is nice, but if you have to wait long because the trade, logically, the enthusiasm becomes a bit less. I would dress this point a little more effectively. Furthermore, the knowledge about Rotterdam and the history is certainly extensive.
