The cancel cruise was very interesting , we saw parts of Amsterdam that you wouldn’t see walking. The boat was very peaceful and staff were lovely. The Heineken experiences as very good and also interesting, we got to see everything and the people working there couldn’t have been anymore helpful and nice. You can take pictures at different stations and don’t have to pay for them to be printed it is emailed to you. They have great gifts and deals in the shop also.

This was such a brilliant experience. We done the boat cruise first which was so nice and relaxing, where we got to see the city from a different angle. Then followed by the Heineken experience which was definitely the highlight of our holiday. It was so fun and interactive, the guides were so nice and the Heineken even nicer! Would highly recommend

Although not a beer drinker, I really enjoyed the experience. My Husband loved it. The free beer tasting was excellent and creating ones own named bottle. It would be fun in a group too. We thought it great value for money. Do this tour and not the Brewery and Bars tour in Munich which was rubbish.
