SplashTours Rotterdam

Parkhaven 11, 3016 GM Rotterdam


SplashTours: a bus ride on the river Maas!

If you want to explore Rotterdam, you can book a Spido boat trip or make a city tour by historical tram Rotterdam, but the spectacular ride with SplashTours combines both land and water. The big yellow SplashTours bus is an amphibious vehicle and after a classic city tour, the bus just enters the Maas for a river cruise! So you don't have to choose between a tour or a cruise: simply do both! With SplashTours you can experience sightseeing Rotterdam in an exciting way.

Sightseeing Tour in Rotterdam

The SplashTours route starts near the Euromast tower with the special amphibian bus. It's a tour comparable to Ride the Ducks or Duck Tours in other big cities. At first glance the SplashTours bus looks like a regular city bus, but is actually quite special. The SplashTours bus is the only vehicle in the world that is fully certified as both a seaworthy vessel and a touring bus. SplashTours will drive you through Rotterdam city centre along the Maritime museum and will take you through the Maas tunnel to the south of Rotterdam where the huge museum steamer ss Rotterdam is moored.

The SplashTours showpiece

Then the big spectacle begins: the SplashTours bus drives into the river and turns into a boat. During a fun cruise on the river Maas you will enjoy the breathtaking view of the city skyline and enjoy sights like Hotel New York, the Erasmus Bridge and the skyscrapers Montevideo and New Orleans. Thereafter SplashTours returns into the direction of ss Rotterdam again. Along the way you'll see the historic Veerhaven harbour and the maritime quarter of Rotterdam and the Splashtours vessel is converted into a bus again.

Across the Erasmus Bridge and along the maritime quarter

The bus takes you via the peninsula Katendrecht along the Wilhelmina Pier with the New Luxor Theatre across the Erasmus Bridge back to the Rotterdam city centre. On your way back to the SplashTours departing point near the Euromast, you'll pass the maritime quarter and the park. After your arrival, you have the opportunity to have a drink.

SplashTours Rotterdam is great for kids

The amusing Splashtours trip takes about 60 minutes and is also quite informative. During your city tour, English and Dutch spoken tourist information is given at the major landmarks. Especially for families, SplashTours is a fun trip to discover Rotterdam: children will not get bored during the ride through Rotterdam. SplashTours also offers all kinds of cheap combination tickets in cooperation with other attractions in Rotterdam, so if you want to see more of the port of Rotterdam, you can also make a boat trip with the Spido.

Celebrating a bachelor party in Rotterdam

The ride, the splash and the river cruise make SplashTours a great idea for a fun bachelor party in Rotterdam with your friends. SplahTours Rotterdam offers numerous package deals with other attractions, such as Lasergame and Minigolf Rotterdam.
