Mini Van tour
If you visit Rotterdam, the port should definitely not be missing from your list of highlights.
Mini Van Tours' Highlight Tour integrates the port in a unique way. The tour starts at the Markthal Rotterdam and then drives towards the port area. Here you will stop at the historic SS Rotterdam, which now serves as a hotel and museum. A tour of the ship will give you a glimpse into the fascinating history of this ocean liner.
Next, you visit Europe's largest port and one of the busiest in the world. Here you can take a tour and see the huge container ships and cargo ships up close. Then the tour drives past Maasvlakte 2, an impressive artificial extension of the port of Rotterdam and one of the largest infrastructure projects in the Netherlands. From a distance, you can admire the huge cranes and sea containers.
To finish the tour, visit the Euromast. This tower offers stunning views of the port and the city from the observation deck. But that's not all!

This is a unique and authentic Dutch experience you won't soon forget.
