The best way to explore Rotterdam is by foot, so join me on a stroll around town! On a 2,5 to 3 hour walking tour I will show you the best that Rotterdam has to offer. Prepare to be dazzled by the skyline, soak up the urban atmosphere and experience the city like a local. Along the way we will spot most of the highlights like the Markthal, Cubic houses and the Erasmusbridge, but I will mainly focus on some of the best kept secrets of town. During the tour I will provide you with tons of information about the city’s architecture, art, culture and history. And ofcourse lots of fun facts and creative nicknames that the citizens made up for Rotterdam’s most prominent buildings and statues. Want to learn some Rotterdam slang? No problem. Are you ready to explore Rotterdam with me?
Hi, my name is Patty. I have studied, worked and lived in Rotterdam for most of my life and I would love to share my favorite highlights and hidden gems with you! Before I started organizing walking tours myself, I have worked for several touristic attractions in Rotterdam. I have guided Segway tours, been a host on board of an amphibious bus and guided groups around the city on foot, which is by far my favorite thing to do! It is my passion to make people feel welcome in my city and I will gladly walk the extra mile (literally!) to show you the best of what Rotterdam has to offer.
The tour will take you to most of the highlights like de Markthal, Cubic houses and Erasmusbridge but we will also explore some hidden gems. A rooftop garden on a former train station, a hidden square on an island in the Maas River and an old harbor that’s been transformed into a living area.
A good mood :)
Depending on how fast we walk, the tour will last about 2,5 to 3 hours. It’s a good walk so wear comfortable shoes! If you have any questions please let me know and I will gladly answer them for you.
