What people are saying about Heineken Experience
It was funny and amusing, only there was a problem because you didn't write Heineken Experience should be the first and canal cruise second activity. Otherwise, it was really pleasant and we would recommend people to take this opportunity to save some euros by combining activities. Amsterdam is really beautiful and Heineken is... well, Heineken :)
Really enjoyed both trips, they are straight opposite each other which made it easy, both again value for money, the Heineken was very interesting with a few glasses of the beer at the end of the tour which was nice, soft drinks for those who didn’t like beer, the canal cruise was well organised with a shop where you check in your ticket to allow you to purchase drinks to take on board, very interesting information given with earphones with chosen language, really relaxing
This tour was great from start to finish. Very interesting and a lot of interactive games to enjoy. The staff were very informative and friendly. I would definitely recommend. The beers were great end to the tour.
We bought our tickets on here for around £16 each and noticed when we got there that they were selling tickets for £21 so definitely buy online. When we went to show our ticket, we couldn’t find a barcode for them to scan. Despite clicking ‘use mobile voucher on app’ it didn’t show anything. We had to queue at the information desk for someone to help us. Eventually they clicked the option which said ‘print voucher’ which then showed the ticket and they were able to scan the barcode on my phone. The museum was actually very interesting. You learn about how the beer was made but it’s also very interactive. And as everyone else has mentioned, it includes 2 beers at the end (half pints) as well as one small beer during.
I attended the Heineken Experience with my adult children while in Amsterdam. Everyone enjoyed themselves. My son commented several times that the beer tasted so much better there than in the US. No one was rushed to leave to make way for the others visiting. From learning he history to enjoying the brew, we found the Heineken Experience a must for beer drinkers.
