Biking and Biting in Rotterdam

A lovely clean city with friendly people, we met “Laura” our guide at the cruise terminal walked across the famous “Erasmusbrug”

(https://en.rotterdam.info/locations/erasmusbrug/) bridge to pick up our bikes for the start of a 3hr “Bike and Bite” tour of the city. We started biking and Laura led us to various vantage points often stopping along the route to give us background and history of the area(Rottredam was almost totally destroyed during WWII so much is new), what makes this excursion so special is that Laura takes you to various cultural neighborhoods were you stop and get a local “Bite” thereby sampling ethnic snacks dishes that are popular in Rotterdam. In addition, Laura took us to the massive “Markethall”



an outdoor and indoor market were our group sampled various Cheese products I could go on and on, but our 3 hr trip turned into 4 + hrs of great fun. Following the excursion I felt that I had seen most of the city and sampled tasty treats. On the way back to the ship, Laura gave us a few more tips of places to stop and sample the local culture
