“Fun, interactive, never boring, topped off with beer and cruise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Excellent value for money. Get to know the history of the beer, as well as many interactive features. The staff were enthusiastic and patient.

The beer was lovely of course and then a canal cruise to the Heineken shop (can buy beer on the cruise!).

“A must see for the beer lovers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I went here with my fiancé And best friend on 5th of January, I am not into beer, but absolutely enjoyed the experience! There is so much to see and do, and a lot of interactive things. We got our names put on beer bottles for a keepsake. We enjoyed our 2 free beers and also the other free beers at the demonstrations. Definitely recommend coming here even for people who do not generally enjoy beer.

“Wow! An Absolute Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I've done a few brewery tours in my travels, but this is probably the best yet! It's a self guided tour so you can take as long as you want, but it still has people at key points to give you more info on certain procedures and the company. We really enjoyed the interactive features of this tour, such as the brewing ride, and the room dedicated to Heineken's involvement in sponsorship of the Eufa Champions League, and also being able to watch several short films throughout. The tour is very well laid out, and continues to hold your attention, and that's not just so you get to the 2 free beers at the end either! I can't recommend this enough!

“2 Free pints of Heinenken, worth every penny.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

There wasn't a huge amount to do here but what there was to see was interesting. However you can enjoy two free pints of Heineken at the end of tour, which automatically bumped the score up a couple of points.
