This Wine & Cheese Canal Cruise was worth every bit of money! The crew, Franc, Els, & Diedrich, were very friendly & informative. Our main guide, Franc, was funny & quite knowledgeable, especially for the length of time he's been in Amsterdam (approx 8 months). Our trip was the perfect amount of time for the tour. It was long enough to feel like you received a good amount of information about the area as well as saw some beautiful scenery, but short enough that you didn't feel like you were trapped on a boat, doing circles for hours on end. The weather was perfect for this 10:00a.m. canal cruise! The wine & cheese selection was nice. If I had one suggestion, it would be to add at least one sweet wine to the wine list. Some type of Moscato or Riesling would be the perfect "add" to the choices. Other than that, I'd give this excursion a 10/10... HIGHLY recommend!!

Heineken experience was very informative, fantastic staff , great entertainment + 2 glasses of beer. City canal cruise is directly across from the Heinekin experience. We did both in the evening, boat trip was fantastic, bridges all lit up .we had a fantastic guide , very jolly he even sang us a song . Enjoyed every minute of our time on board .

Hans was excellent and the tour couldn’t have been more picturesque or perfect. I had such a lovely day and saw such beautiful countryside. Hans modified the tour based on the preferences of the people on the tour. We climbed inside a windmill, saw little villages, saw cheese and clog making. Just magical.

Easy to use and you can see all options for tickets in Amsterdam. For a longer stay it’s better to buy the ticket from the beginning for more days because it’s cheaper, instead buying every day a new ticket. Don’t forget to check in and out every time you use the transport.

Great Experience. Nice crew with lots of interesting informations about city and other things. I would recommend.
