It was very nice to sit in such an old tram from The Hague again and to be a tourist in our own city. The squeaky doors and the 'ting' when driving away: these are the sounds of my childhood. The route shows how varied our city is. The pleasant contribution of the drivers and conductors made it a great day!

It's really worth it, as the tourist attractions in Rotterdam are a little far from each other. The tram goes to the beach.

Very interesting and sometimes really frightening to see how it used to be. We recommend.

Nerve racking but excellent. Soooo much fun. Highly recommended.

Loved it, amazing views and friendly helpful staff. Was perfect.
