Sensational! Great tour, well worth the money. You can also get behind a bar and learn to pour your own beer, complete with certificate! 300 metre walk from the canal bus hop on/off drop off point.
I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and he loved it. Especially pretending to be a DJ
If you like Heineken (and YOU SHOULD) then this is worth it. The hop on is very easy to find and figure out and a great way to get around if you are not in a hurry. People are pushy getting on and off.
This is a fun combo ! The Heineken Experience is a fun tour great place to drink beer at the end. Its not guided so you can skip all the boring parts if you like. It's a little touristy, but overall I would do it again. The Hop-on is also very fun, it's actually a great taxi around the city and probably saved us money going from place to place. Its informative and casual.
Loved the coupons that came with this hop-on hop-off tour...saved us some when we went to the Heineken Shop. The canals in Amsterdam are beautiful and I highly suggest everyone do this tour as Amsterdam is gorgeous when viewed from the canals.

Was my first flight to Europe. Always wanted to go to Amsterdam. Finally got my dream come true. That whole tour was awesome, learned a lot from the experienced tour guides. Viator played a major role on this, thanks guys.

Everybody should do this trip. Heineken was interesting and full of fun. Loved the 3 beers token. Excellent!!!
It was great to be able to get on and off whenever you wanted, and see all the sites along the canal. Heineken experience was awesome! A definite must see if you visit Amsterdam.
A great way to see Amsterdam by canal, very relaxing and enjoyable.
journey itself was pretty much ordinary...
but Theme Heineken try to deliver was perfectly matches!
Overall, entire family enjoyed our visit!
Had a great time learning about the history of this great brand. Very friendly and welcoming staff and souvenirs were practical and affordable. Totally interactive tour that allows you to get involved. Enjoyed the time we spent at Heineken and got to sample some product too!!
The canal bus hop on off could have been great in the right scenario; however, for us it left a little something to be desired. We only had one day in the city to get around to do our tourist stuff (on a layover back home). So the slower pace of the boat tour didn't end up fitting into our plans due to the slower nature of the boats. Had we had a few more days and been able to spend ample time on the boats viewing the architecture, that would have been ideal.
Heineken tour was awesome!
I bought the 24 hours day pass and it was a waste of money. You need a good 3-4 hours at Heineken And while there's four different lines on the hop on hop off bus, bear in mind that each only runs 30 mins to 1 hour per stop, so if you miss it, it's some time wasted. If you only have one day, then buy the Heineken ticket through other means (do it in advance to avoid lines). If you have two days, this is a good option. Spend a good half day at Heinken and the other day just on the bus tour (it has audio guides on board) and appreciate the canal round in Amsterdam. Keep in mind, the transport in Amsterdam is rididucously convenient, you could easily buy a day pass (or more) and hop on and off the tram to browse around the city. Obviously, canal bus will give you a different view of the city.
Good for people who are passionate about Heineken. A lot of effort and expense has gone into visual effects which are kind of cool, and the beer tasting and lounge are great for those who want to drink beer...staff seem to love their job at the factory which makes them more enthusiastic with there audience. Canal boat passes are good in nice weather and depending on how long you want to spend riding in the canals.
This was fun! We did it in conjunction with the "hop on hop off".
What a great way to get around Amsterdam for the day! Go by canal. It was a lovely hot day and the canal trips were awesome. The Heineken a lot of fun.
Tour of Heineken Brewery was great fun. The Canal Bus was lovely and a great way to get between sites. Saves on the footware.
Very good combination. Heineken experience is very entertaining and well done.
Well worth every euro.
Great experience - busy day at Heineken, so pretty crowded, but still a very good day!
Hop-on, Hop off canal bus was great, though we probably could have utilised it better. But that was our doing!
The boats were comfortable and warm and the commentary was interesting and informative. Although there are 3 lines, the green and red lines follow more or less the same route and stop at the same places. All the lines go to the museum stop and we found ourselves there several times when trying to get somewhere else. Although its a fine way to get around Amsterdam its not that quick or efficient.
