My Review

This was a really fun and interesting trip - not to mention the unexpected horses! The former brewery shows you how the Company grew from it's early beginnings. Some of the fun highlights include a 'ride' where the participants stand on an oscillating platform whilst watching a video presentation of how the various ingredients go together to make Heineken beer! This is followed by the first taste of the finished beer! The tour route continues through some of the marketing and advertising campaigns, including a display of the Champions League. There are a few interactive things to try out and opportunities to personalise a bottle! The tour ends in the bar, with a chance to pull your own pint (or half as is the way on the continent). As you leave the tour, you have the opportunity to buy branded merchandise in the museum shop - if you can imagine it, they have stuck a Heineken badge on it! This was a really fun tour, the staff all spoke very good English - in fact the entire tour, video clips and wall mounted display were all in English! - and were really interesting to listen to. We combined this tour with a Hop On - Hop Off ticket for the Canal Bus which made the tickets fantastic value for money - we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would recommend it to you. The tour route has many stairs and covers a fair distance, so you need to be relatively fit and mobile, we didn't see any visible evidence of a wheelchair route.
