Sightseeing tour Rotterdam: Public transport options

Are you looking for a sightseeing tour in Rotterdam? Public transport is an effective way to explore The Netherlands, especially the South-Holland region. However, when travelling for a whole day you will find that public transport is rather expensive. Therefore, if you want to go on a sightseeing tour in Rotterdam with public transport we recommend the Tourist Day Ticket. The ticket costs only €14,50 and it is valid for a whole day. The costs of travelling to multiple zones within the South-Holland region can easily surpass the price of the Tourist Day Ticket. Besides, the ticket grants comfortable travelling due to unlimited access to trams, ferries, buses and the metro. Yet, if you are planning on only staying in Rotterdam, then the RET day ticket for €8,00 is more suitable.

The Tourist Day Ticket allows you to easily travel within the South-Holland region. For instance, to Delft, The Hague, Gouda and of course Rotterdam. Rotterdam is the second-largest city in The Netherlands, famous for its notable harbour and many skyscrapers. In contrast to the harbour, Rotterdam houses various impressive architectural sites to include in your sightseeing tour. For instance, the Markthal, Euromast and the Erasmus bridge. In addition, you can explore the countless museums and go on a shopping spree in the centrum of Rotterdam. Also, consider visiting the oldest zoo in The Netherlands, the Rotterdam zoo better known as; Diergaarde Blijdorp.

The Tourist Day Ticket is a convenient way to explore the South-Holland region. There are no travel restrictions and you do not have to worry about buying separate public transport tickets. The ticket is valid throughout the whole day, since the first check-in till the end of the day’s timetable. Nevertheless, do not forget to check-in and out when travelling with public transport. Simply hold your ticket to a reader near the entrance, exit or gates.
