From there we will cycle along the Maas to enjoy a view over the city. After a long but gorgeous bike ride we arrive back at the central station where we started

I love cycling. I cycled all the way to Vienna, Austria once, but most of the time I cycle through and around my home town Rotterdam. Rotterdam is a great city with lots of bike lanes along the river Maas and many other canals and historic harbours. The bike is the perfect means of transportation if you want to discover the city and you only have little time. I can easily adjust my tours to your wishes. Would you like to explore the architecture in the city? Lets see that? Do you prefer to discover some good places to wat or go out? My bike and I will take you there.

Clemens was very friendly and knowledgeable but I think this tour is best for people who know nothing about Rotterdam as it doesn’t really add anything of an ‘insider’ flavour as we were hoping for. Having visited Rotterdam before there was not much at all in this tour that I hadn’t seen or done already and that’s a shame. Also due to some hiccups the tour felt very rushed and elements promised in the description were missed out, which disappointed us. I think it’s an interesting tour for those new to what is a wonderful city and if less rushed and with good weather then it would be even better.

The trip is very nice and informative. You need to get used to the back pedaling breaks. Check the weather as it might effect your overall experience. Generally, I recommend this tour l.

Es war eine sehr schöne und INteressante Tout durch Rotterdam auch abseits der fussläufig erreichbaren Highlights - er ist auch auf die individuellen Wünschen eingegangen und hat auch aus seinem Privatleben geplaudert

Clemens was a very thoughtful host, offering us a chance to practise on the bikes first. He had a deep knowledge of the history of many of the buildings we looked at and his passion for the architecture really showed though. Clemens was very friendly and willing to share personal stories which added an extra richness to the tour that we wouldn’t get exploring for ourselves. This was such a great way to see Rotterdam, a highly recommended experience!

Thanks to Clemens, we visited Rotterdam in a way we would never have the opportunity to organise. Understanding how the city works and how people leave with their bicycles was part of this great experience. The choice of building and views of Rotterdam were also very interesting. We had a great time with our daughter. Carry on Clemens for tourists who want to understand Rotterdam and Dutsch people !
