Meet the Rotterdam Bar Crawl crew

The crew

Rotterdam Bar Crawl has a total of 15 energetic crew members/guides who will guide you during your crawl, they will energise the group and organise small but fun games. If you have any problems/questions during the crawl then you are more than welcome to ask the crew members for everything (almost everything). 

 

The crew consists of 5 close friends and a group of local Dutch volunteers  or as we say in Dutch: Echte Rotterdammers (real Rotterdam inhabitants) all these guides have more than enough experience in the Rotterdam nightlife scene to provide you with everything you need to have an amazing night. 

 

Wander Krans

Dear crawlers, My name is Wander Krans and I am the founder/organizer of Rotterdam Bar Crawl. I have lived in Rotterdam for the majority of my life, I am saying majority because I lived abroad for 2 years and this is where I found the inspiration for Rotterdam Bar Crawl. Since I mostly traveled alone it was quite hard to make new connections until I discovered the local bar crawls, this was my main activity to make new connections for the rest of my journey and in these bar crawls I have made some connections which I will have for the rest of my life. When I came back to Rotterdam I discovered that there was no such thing in Rotterdam (in my opinion the best city in the world) so we started our own! mainly to show everybody this amazing city and give them the opertunity to meet new amazing people in a new city. 

Next to organizing Rotterdam Bar Crawl I study Watermanagement in Rotterdam and work at Opa and Bierboutique. If you want to crawl with us sign up and I will see you on Thursday!! 

Falco Bakker

Dear crawlers, my name is Falco and I am 25 years old. I am born and raised in Rotterdam and this city is the place to be. The rest of the crew share this same opinion, so for us, it is just a wonderful opportunity to guide you through this amazing city! I’m doing this every week and meeting new people from over the world is a great experience. So if you want a great time of pleasure, fun, humor and a lot of drinks join me and the crew and experience Rotterdam like we do every day! On the Rotterdam Bar Crawl; we don’t walk, we crawl! Do we see you tonight?
