Group outing Bustour
On this half-day tour we pick you up in our coach from your location of choice in the city. We then proceed from Rotterdam via historic Delfshaven to Schiedam. Delfshaven is the former seaport of the city of Delft.
Its history stretches back over six centuries and is reflected in its architecture. By the end of the 19th century Delfshaven had been absorbed by Rotterdam as one of its neighbourhoods. Like the city of Delft, Delfshaven is named after the digging (‘delven’) of canals.
Your guide will introduce you to all the interesting aspects of Delfshaven, while telling you about the rich history of this extraordinary part of Rotterdam. Delfshaven was also the starting point of the Pilgrim Fathers in July 1620, to emigrate to North America in 1620. Since then, the town's Old Church has also been known as the Pelgrimskerk, or in English, the "Pilgrim Fathers’ Church".
From Delfshaven we proceed our tour to Schiedam, the famous suburb of Rotterdam, nicknamed; Black Nazareth. The guide gives explanation. The six remaining mills of the many that served in the gin industry are the highest in the world. They still determine the cityscape.
Whoever says Schiedam thinks about gin. During the city walk in Schiedam the guide tells about the history and developments of this 'jenever city'.
