Was there to watch the Mexico vs Netherlands game. Fantastic atmosphere during the game. Fans of both teams were friendly. Did not take any tour of the stadium.

For a start it would help if the information about tour times and duration was the same on the leaflet and website as it is in actuality. We arrived for an 11am tour only to find there had ben one at 10.30 and the next was 11.15. The tour takes 70 mins despite the leaflet saying an hour. The 10%... More

Wonderful stadium to watch a football match. Me and my friends had booked tickets for the international friendly between the Netherlands and Mexico. This was my first time in a football stadium, and it was a fantastic experience. Even though my seat was in the second-from-top row, behind the goal, the view was brilliant. Facilities of the stadium are good.... More

Yes the arena is very big and yes it can host various events but to me a stadium is just a stadium and they all look very similar to me. You can walk around the pitch and see inside the changing room of the players, and see the press room which are quite interesting. Our guide was really polite and... More

This is the biggest stadium in Netherlands and the most beautiful. Inside you get to see the history, the surveillance system, the shop and the magnificent graffiti. Compact staudium, worth every cent visiting it. It is shame that tourists can't get tickets for games easily.

The Amsterdam Arena is an impressive stadium and the guided tour gives a unique view behind the scenes of Hollands biggest stadium and the home of the world famous Ajax Football Club. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic about Ajax and proud of the history of the stadium. It was given in good English which was very useful. Unfortunatley we... More

The biggest stadium in Holland, home of AFC Ajax and of the national football team of Holland. Can be reached by metro, which stops right near the stadium. Tour takes about 1 hr, and the guides are very nice and full of jokes :). You will find interesting things about the stadium and about the football team also. Visiting a... More

The stadium itself is very impressive but was slightly dissapointed by the tour. Started off by going into a room and watching a video about the stadium's history, then went into the stands, then another part of the stands, and then into the press room, and that was it. The tour also took double the amount of time that we... More
