Myself and my fiancé went to the lookout and also booked the ‘Over the edge’ swing.We had a blast.I would definitely recommend going and booking the swing for an extra €5.

Amsterdam in 8 hours (5 Replies)
Hi I am travelling to Amsterdam on 6th September during my cruise trip. I’ll stop over from 8am to 18pm. Is it worth going to ‘this is Holland’ flying experience, Adam lookout, and the blue boat canal tour during this short period? Thank you Anouchka

Response fromsteveftw|
<‘this is Holland’ flying experience> haven't heard of it. cannot comment < Adam lookout> seems to be a hit. so worth doing <blue boat canal tour > definitely. they happen to be my fave tour boats but really they are all basically the same. doesn't have to be the blue boats.

Rock the city from Heineken Experience (3 Replies)
Hi Guys, I'm planning to start the rock the city tour from the Heineken Experience because I'm coming from the Albert Cuyp Market. Few questions: Is it a guided tour in the Heineken Experience? If i start the tour at 16:30, do I have enough time to factor in a swing ride at Adam Lookout? I read that the Lookout closes at 10pm. Are we guaranteed a seat on the boatride to Adam lookout? Are there specific departure times to meet?

<Is it a guided tour in the Heineken Experience?> On the very first page of their website you are given the option of the "Heineken Tour" or the "VIP Tour". Not quite sure what you didn't understand. <If i start the tour at 16:30, do I have enough time to factor in a swing ride at Adam Lookout? I read that the Lookout closes at 10pm.> Just a curious question - Are you planning on spending 5.5 hours at the HE? "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness"--Mark...More
