Nothing but a glorified cocktail lounge touting Bols products. I thought they would show how the prodcut was made.

This is odd thing to do, I mean it is not historical or cultural, just total adult fun! The tour is cute... The drinks that included are awesome! You can even do a goofy little video to share on Facebook... If you have the time... Do it!

We really enjoyed our visit here. We used our Holland Pass - very good value for money in itself. The tour is self guided but very interesting and moves along at a good pace. Really enjoyed guessing the different Bols flavours. Was also great to try a free cocktail and wee tots of other flavours at the end. Great fun for couples or groups of adult friends - and is only about five minutes walk from the newly reopened Rijksmuseum.

The tour had very little to it, once you had smelt some of the flavours, thats pretty much it.. The bar staff were very unfriendly. The coctail wasnt well presented or very nice.Its not expensive but I wouldnt waste your time going
