Það sem verður gert

HISTORY OF ROTTERDAM
During this tour, my goal is to show you how Rotterdam’s unique history shaped the city. I will cover the history from roughly 1300 onward: from the birth and development of the city, to its destruction in 1940, and how Rotterdam rose from its ashes to become the intriguing city it is today. To enhance your understanding, I will bring along several (historic) maps and also touch upon Dutch history and culture in general.

PRIVATE WALKING TOUR
In 3 hours, we will traverse the city center by foot: from pre-war parts that survived the bombing, to reconstructed and newer areas. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a local or new to the city. This is a private tour, which allows me to cater exactly to your needs and prior knowledge of Rotterdam and the Netherlands.

Hi, I’m Rob! In my spare time I give private tours of Rotterdam. I have always been fascinated by history and cities, and Rotterdam interested me ever since I moved here in 2007. The city is in no way comparable to any other place in the Netherlands. I have extensive knowledge of Rotterdam and Dutch history and I want to give you a personal feel for Rotterdam, the way only a local can.

Staðsetning

We start where the city began, at the Binnenrotte (near the Markthal). Then we’ll walk towards the river while I explain the city’s early history and how it grew into a thriving port. We’ll continue towards the center to discuss the single most impactful event in Rotterdam’s history: the bombing of 1940. We finish the tour at Eendrachtsplein after discussing the city's reconstruction and modern development.

It was great! Rob is very likeable and easygoing. He will personalize the tour and the knowledge he shares to your personal interests. He will show some very interesting locations and give worthwhile information and fun-facts about it. Definitely a great thing to do while in Rotterdam! Highly recommended.

Heel erg goede toer dit! Wij zouden Rob absoluut bij iedereen aanraden. Hij bereidt zich zeer goed voor, vraagt echt dingen uit om de toer wat persoonlijker te kunnen maken. Houdt kleine groepen aan waardoor je echt veel te weten komt, veel kunt vragen en het echt persoonlijk wordt! Goede sfeer, leuke map met foto’s en kaarten die hij gebruikte tijdens de uitleg waardoor het een kloppend verhaal werd! Kortom absoluut dubbel en dwars zijn geld waard! Wij hadden er veel van verwacht maar dat wist Rob zelfs te overstijgen; dank Rob en heel graag tot een volgende keer!

Goede communicatie. Verliep soepel. Tour was interessant (van het verre verleden tot het heden ) en prima te belopen. Zo'n 5 km in 3 uur tijd. Leuke interacties met ons! Top gedaan!

Wat een mooie, indrukwekkende toer door Rotterdam en wat een fantastische begeleiding! Rob weet veel van de historie van de stad en hij weet het nog eens vol passie te vertellen. Ineens kijk ik anders tegen bepaalde gebouwen aan. En weet ik nu ook de speciale straten te vinden waar ik voorheen gewoon langs liep. Het is een echte aanrader om je stad /land beter te leren kennen! Zelfs als Amsterdammer van oorsprong was de toer erg mooi om te ervaren. En ondanks de regen had ik het met geen goud willen missen, want de boeiende verhalen van Rob heeft het helemaal goed gemaakt!
