Spido is one of Rotterdam’s biggest attractions. They offer round trips, day trips and theme cruises in Rotterdam all year round from the foot of the Erasmus Bridge. The company was founded in 1919 as a water transport service and reinvented itself as a cruise operator after the Second World War. Today they have five ships and offer a variety of tours.
The Port of Rotterdam tour (75 minutes) sails year-round and gives passengers a short but powerful impression of Rotterdam’s container ports. The route passes sights like the Hotel New York, the Euromast and the ss Rotterdam. There are also day trips to, for example, the second Maasvlakte or Willemstad and theme cruises like the Bridge Tour or Valentine Dinner Cruise. There are 2.5-hour-long summer night cruises and extended port cruises in July and August. You can book these cruises for groups of a maximum of 200. Tours are normally given in Dutch, with English, French and German available on request.
Spido is in the Scheepsvaartkwartier (Maritime District), a five-minute walk from metro and tram station Leuvehaven. Parking is available at Spido for both cars and buses.
