Draft Your Own

Heineken experience was amazing! Canal tour was relaxing.

The Heineken experience is very interactive and fun - even if you are not a beer drinker. We did the canal ride afterwards and it was very relaxing. Got some great pictures! We sat in the bow of the boat so we didn’t get to hear the guide at all but still a wonderful ride.

Very nice combo of museum and cool event

Listening to the history of the Heineken brewery and walk through the different stages of brewing, suddenly all gets modern with movie, music and some entertainer and than all of a sudden the waiter with a plate full of Heineken and all equal filled. Beautiful

Heineken experience was awesome, canal cruise terrible

Heineken experience was worth the money. If you do a canal cruise do one with a boat with no roof. The boats they use has a roof and you can’t see much. We ended up trying another canal cruise with no roof and it was awesome. Book your canal cruise separate

Great tour but the start could be improved.

Outside queue system not clear would be better to have larger signs for each queue. Also the first 2 guides start talking before making sure everyone is there & so many people were talking we can’t hear what was being said

The Heineken tour was great and very interactive the canal cruise was not the most exciting it lacked commentary and also the eftpos machine was not working so no drinks could be purchased on board.
