Your trip to Rotterdam will last approximately 1.5 hours. Along the way, you will pass through The Hague, the third largest city in The Netherlands. Upon your request, the Welcome Driver might stop there and give you as much time as you need to stroll around the city center. The Hague might impress you with the richness of culture and history. You will find have a chance to see Binnenhof, Noordeinde Palace, Peace Palace, and much more.
Once you have reached Rotterdam, you will have many attractions to visit. The Cube Houses are one of the most iconic objects in the town. Designed by architect Piet Blom, the houses form a separate village within the city. Each house in the set represents a tree, and together they form the unique forest.
Markthal is another attraction nearby the Cube Houses. This extraordinary market is known for the hall's ceiling which features a fascinating urban fresco 'Horn of Plenty.' The market itself is a perfect place for shopping and local food tasting.
Locals also suggest visiting Erasmusbrug, a bridge in the center of Rotterdam which connects the south and north parts of the town. Its eye-catching white structure makes it a perfect location to take panoramic pictures of Rotterdam.
Euromast observation tower, a 184 meters height building, attract both locals and visitors to admire the panorama of the city.

Among the best, you will find a natural history museum Natuurhistorisch Museum, Chabot Museum which exhibits paintings and sculptures by Dutch painter Hendrikus Chabot.

We recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be equipped with wet weather gear if rain is expected. Please note that religious sites require modest attire- knees and shoulders must be covered.
In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
