    Loved the Heineken experience, three free drinks come in handy, the boat trip was enjoyable and helped it was a beautiful day and the sun was cracking the flags. The boat trip you have to try and find the actual shop that sells or deals in the trip before you go on it, which was a bit of a bind as we thought it was down next to the Heineken Experience it wasn't it was beside the Amsterdam Centraal train station, that is why I only gave four stars as your ticket does not tell you which company it is with and there are so many.

    The experience itself was great but the information about how we would do both activities was very poor. I was under the impression we would go from the Heineken experience to the canal cruise as we had to book a time slot for the Heineken experience first. This wasn’t the case and we had to go all the way across to the other side of the city just to find out what we were meant to do. Communication was not clear and it was quite stressful.

    The Heineken Experience and hour canal cruise was worth its cost and could not go any smoother. Walked right into the Heineken experience, my group was included in the next tour that was starting. Was able to take as long as we wanted in looking and listening to the Heineken presentations. Loved that we were able to do the canal cruise on a different day. It gave us the flexibility to go when the weather was perfect.
