Rotterdam: Travel to the Future

Fantastic architecture, innovations, and life in one of the most modern cities in the world

Private Guided Tour in Rotterdam:
Unveiling Modern Wonders and Eclectic Charm

This Rotterdam tour is something you don't want to miss! The city is simply fantastic, and we're not saying this for no reason. People here prefer to wander 10 meters above the ground level; chickens, cows, and even busses can swim, and the cherry trees can bear fruit during the winter. The locals wear clothing made of orange peel, use jewelry to purify the air and outsource the cleaning chores to drones. Impressive buildings here are assembled like a construction set, and many homes are fully autonomous and environmentally sustainable. Through its unique architecture, design, and street art, Rotterdam achieves numerous important objectives, such as, for example, successful socialization programs for people with legal convictions. Hundreds of other environmental, technical, and social experiments are taking place are also taking place here. Everything here is so different from the rest of the world, which makes the lives of Rotterdammers so special and incredibly comfortable. Rotterdammers love theis city like no other. To pass by without figuring out why, without peeking even a bit into our shared future, seems to be a missed opportunity.

We highly recommend this Rotterdam city tour to those interested not only in history but also in modern times, urbanism, architecture, and technological innovations. Don't miss this opportunity to have a journey into the future!

We'll peek into the iconic St. Lawrence Cathedral and the old port, stroll down the city's trendiest street filled with murals, galleries, charming cafes, and bars, and through the museum park where parrots live. We'll visit the smuggler's harbor and walk along the Maas Riverbank.

During our Rotterdam tour, we'll enjoy plenty of delicious tastings and take photos that will impress all your friends.

Uncover the Stories: Innovations, Experiments, and Architecture

Why buy a plot of water? How to find bats? How many Rotterdam residents "hate their job"? What should be done when stormy winds threaten to carry an entire forest out to sea? How do you turn a troubled neighborhood into a trendy one? We'll tell you!

We'll tell you about numerous ecological, technological, and social experiments. We'll discuss architecture and urbanism, the role of public initiatives and organizations in the Netherlands, sustainable development, and the coexistence of humans and nature in an urban environment. But that's not all. This Rotterdam guided tour is private so we'll focus on what interests you, whether it's astonishing innovations, the city's past, unique flood defense technologies, or street art. And, of course, we'll share how the residents of this city, which we dearly love, live today.

Engage and Experience: Local Tastes and Activities

Together, we'll discover many charming and cozy spots you wouldn't expect to find in a modern city. We'll also climb walls, find the world's largest artwork, snap photos at a famous spot with the hashtag #feelingsmart and other unusual places, hug giant rabbits, explore a couple of ship holds, complain about our jobs, experience a slight loss of orientation in space, uncover hidden art objects, and try lots of tasty snacks.

* We suggest planning at least one/two-day trip to Rotterdam. This way, after the Rotterdam city tour, you'll have plenty of time to explore all the incredible spots we'll tell you about. Also, don't miss the opportunity to visit fabulous cities nearby—Delft and The Hague.
