City tour Rotterdam: Public transport options

Public transport is a perfect and effective way to explore The Netherlands. However, when using public transport throughout the day, you will notice that it can get rather expensive. Therefore, if you want to visit the South-Holland region for a city tour in Rotterdam, we advise you to consider purchasing the Tourist Day Ticket. The ticket is only €15,50 and is valid for a whole day. The costs of a city tour in Rotterdam with public transport can easily surpass the price of the Tourist Day Ticket. Besides, the Tourist Day Ticket grants unlimited access to ferries, trams, buses and the metro.

With the Tourist Day Ticket, you can travel anywhere in the South-Holland region. The ticket provides a nice opportunity to visit the second-largest city in The Netherlands; Rotterdam. The city of Rotterdam is famous for its skyscrapers and eccentric architecture. Some of the distinctive architectural sites to include in your city tour Rotterdam are the Markthal, the Euromast, the Cubehomes and the Erasmus Bridge. In contrast to exploring the landmarks, Rotterdam is a great place for a shopping spree or visiting a museum. Some of the famous museums include; Maritime Museum, Kunsthal and the Natural History Museum.

Tourists who are looking into exploring Rotterdam and the South-Holland region will find that the Tourist Day Ticket is essential. You can travel without any restrictions and avoid the hassle of buying multiple public transport tickets. The ticket is valid throughout the whole day, from the first check-in til the end of the timetable of that day.

If you are interested in travelling to different zones on the same day within the South-Holland region; we recommend the Tourist Day Ticket. However, if you plan on travelling within one specific zone, then we advise you to buy a day ticket from the transport operator concerned. For instance, if you are only staying in Rotterdam, then the RET day ticket for €8,00 is more suitable.
