I don't think splash tours goes all the way to the Port. If you wanna see the port you can always take the fast ferry. It's great in the summer, you're even allowed to take a bike with you. Btw, I added you on Flickr. Feel free to check out some of my Rotterdam shots

Thanks for these very beautiful pictures despite the weather! Really a great job!

Btw, which dates did you go exactly, and you went there for a short holiday i guess?

It's because it's a city that's still being shaped and that's never finished and because the skyline increased just the last few years, so that the city improved a lot. During the 90's I never really liked Rotterdam, but since the last 5 years it got it's own style and improved a lot and now we have something to be proud of in Rotterdam.

Also a lot of public squares and areas have been giving a make-over or are due to big changes with better quality paving stones and more grass, plants, trees and more luxury street furniture.

You could also take a Water Taxi to cross the water, they are not very expensive and mostly it are speed boats. And it's really a nice and spectaculair ride.

Also a nice place to visit next time: Veerhaven. It's an harbour with old houses and ships just nex to the Erasmusbrug. Instead of crossing it to the south you go to the right (west) alongside the river side and you'll arive there.

Great shots! Despite (perhaps because of) the weather one of the best series of Rotterdam I've seen in quite a while.
