Frank was a knowledgeable guide. We lucked out and it became a private tour with the two of us and Frank. We saw the major sites and it was an enjoyable day. A great way to see things in a short period. One suggestion, if going from the cruise ship take the water taxi for 9 Eur for two. The taxi was 25 Eur. They seem to charge what they want. Great value for the Segway!

Op het laatste moment besloten de bloementour te doen. We werden heel hartelijk ontvangen door Dennis. Na zijn enthousiaste en vakkundige uitleg gingen we op pad. Leuke feitjes onderweg, goede routebeschrijving, mooie stops/fotomomenten. Dennis bedankt! We komen zeker nog een keer bij je terug voor één van jouw andere tochten. Aanrader!

This was a great and easy way to see Rotterdam. We had difficulty getting to the starting point on time. (We did not realize that we had to schedule the water taxi.) However they held the tour for us. I would recommend this tour for anyone wishing to see the city and adventurous to ride a Segway.

It was a very nice experience. Getting the ticket beforehand really help to immediately enter all the different parts of the place.

Fun to do something totally different and the guided tour takes you off on roads you would probably never take. Totally worth it.
