What you'll do

I will meet you 15 minutes before start of the tour at 1e Blekerhof 26, near metro station Leuvehaven. From there we will pick up the bikes and start our city exploration. I will introduce you to the city demographics and explain how the tour will go.
In the bike tour you will see all the famous Rotterdam Highlights, but also visit real hidden treasures you otherwise wouldn't find. Highlights include the Cube houses, the City Hall, Laurenschurch, the Markthal, and the Erasmusbridge. You will not hear the standard info, but the behind the scenes stories and fun facts. A little over half of the tour you will have a break at the Fenix Food Factory, a very nice alternative indoor market. At some locations we will park the bike and go in, for example at the Markthal. During the bike tour I will give you many insider tips and point out local restaurants, places for going out, shopping and sightseeing. A good idea to do this tour at the beginning of your stay so you will get a real insider experience.
After approximately 2,5-3 hours we will back at the Leuvehaven.

Hi! I'm Ariane. A few years ago I decided to quit my job in European politics and move back to my home city Rotterdam. Time for a more simple and pure life. In 2014 I started my own small tour company because I wanted to give visitors a warm welcome to this raw urban metropole. Also I like to take people off the beaten path and surprise them with all the contrasts of this great city. My specialities are: architecture, history, culture, food, street art, ridiculous facts, and my latest fascination: city animals.

De Rotterdam inside fietstour van Ariane mag je niet overslaan als je een dagje/weekend in Rotterdam bent! Ken je de highlights (Erasmusbrug, markthal etc) al? Geef dat aan en Ariane zorgt voor een geheel andere route met allerlei verrassende stukjes van de stad. Wij gaan zeker nog eens een (fiets)tour doen bij Ariane. Zo leuk! Bedankt! Groet, Kevin en Amber

Ariane maakt volledig 'waar ' haar organisatie voor staat; Insite Rotterdam. Lekkere gemakkelijke verteller, deskundig en Rotterdamse flair. Niet even een groepje toeristen afdraaien maar met interesse en passie doet ze haar verhaal . Prima ochtend gehad met deze gids !

Onwijs leuke trip om Rotterdam te leren kennen. Vanuit hier nieuwsgierig om nog meer te verkennen. Lowik, onze gids, voelde de groep goed aan en wist echt leuke dingen te vertellen. Het voelde persoonlijk en niet als een toer die op automatische piloot wordt uitgevoerd.

Great tour of Rotterdam city center. Lowik was good, passionate and overall very patient with all our questions. I’d do it again for sure! Thank you.

This was a great way to see Rotterdam's highlights! The bike was comfortable... larger and heavier than I'm used to at home, but I adjusted easily. A fun excursion!
