Very worthwhile, however while we were there in January, many canals were frozen, and we had to use the tram to get to several places we had planned to go by canal bus. The Heineken Experience was great!
Was great brought for my boyfriend and he loved it. The canal cruise is a must.
Its worth doing if you have all day, or ever a couple days. We only had 1 day in Amsterdam, so we wanted to get places quickly, and the canal boats were kinda slow. But definitely fun and relaxing! Would buy again!!
Good value for the money, especially as canal ticket could be used next day to 12pm.
The DJ room was very entertaining. The tour is very self promoting, not as much of a learning experience. However, the beer is excellent. The museum is closed on Monday's!
I thought it was extremely handy to have multiple places to get off at and get back on.
The canal tour was well worth it, a great way to see and learn about the city. The Heineken Experience was a little disappointing; we thought it would be a working factory, it was more of a commercial museum.
Receiving tokens for free beer was good and cool gift at the end.
The Heineken Experience was a blast, and the Canal buses are the best way to see Amsterdam while relaxing.
Heineken Experience was interesting but more suited to young men. The Amsterdam Canal Hop On Hop Off Bus was fantastic and a must for any trip to Amsterdam
Heineken experience is five stars, I didn't utilise the canal pass that much, so that wasn't for me. Best to do heineken on it's own. However I'm not the one to judge canal pass.
Good tour, canal boats were not running because of stormy weather so we walked. Been to many brewery tour and this one was good but not great.
The canal cruise was nice, but the windows were so dirty, you couldn't see things clearly. Heineken was great.
The canal bus is a very good way to see the inner city, and avoid the traffic. Just make sure you start early, it can be a long wait between the boats arriving. The Heineken experience is worth it if you haven't already done a brewery tour, or your a Heineken fan.
This was educational, but what was most important was the great beer.
The canal bus only stops at each location once per hour. I wish I had known that before hand to plan my timing better. We only ended up riding it once, which was such a waste. Plus the canal bus stopped running at 5:30pm which seemed early for those on holiday. The Heineken experience was cool.
Bad speakers. unable to hear . First toar boat
verry unpleasent .not help full.But had a good time
I enjoyed this day and it is a nice way to see different parts of the city
This tour was great for the boat ride but you don't really need it to get around Amsterdam, the tram system is amazing and will get you everywhere. The henikene tour was great, it's always good when beer is in included in the price of your tour.
The Hop On Hop Off was inconvenient because it only ran every few hours or so and it was hard to manage in with our schedule. The Heineken Experience was fun and we really enjoyed that!
Absolutely appalling access and tour for anyone who is disabled. If you do not inform staff and the outset it is impossible to get disabled access but there is nothing to say you should inform them at the start. Therefore you cant get in the lifts etc and there are no staff on the tour top help. When we enquired we were made to feel an inconvenience. Its a shame as this attitude was completely opposite to everywhere else we visited in theis Country. Over all the tour was okay but wouldn't rush back even with able bodied.
Many canals were frozen in January 2010, and we were not informed that certain stops could not be made, therefore we had to get off and rely on other transportation. Canal experience is good, but as a form of transportation, we would recommend the trams. The Heineken Experience was lots of fun, leave plenty of time so as not to be rushed.
The canal bus is great no problems there. Buying tickets ahead of time for the Heineken Experience didn't end up being beneficial. We were relieved that we didn't have to wait in the ticket line, but after we waited in the entrance line much shorter-- only about 40 people, we were told that we couldn't bring our coats inside. We had to check our coats, and the line for the coat check was easily 80 people. And actually there wasn't a line it was just a hoard of people pushing toward one or two employees checking coats. After waiting around 20 minutes in that without getting any closer, we ended up giving our tickets away and leaving.
