Canal cruise: 1 hour
  • Save time and money with an Amsterdam combo ticket to two of its best attractions
  • Play on the interactive exhibits, learn the history of Heineken and enjoy a couple of cold brews at the Heineken Experience
  • Cruise on Amsterdam's UNESCO Heritage-listed canals and see 16th and 17th-century architecture, plus get a free audio guide

Can't decide between the Heineken Experience or a canal cruise? We've taken the dilemma off your hands with this fun Amsterdam combo. Learn the history and recipe behind the iconic beer brand in the interactive brewery (free drinks included at the end), then hop on a canal boat for some even cooler Dutch history.

The best day of your Amsterdam trip may just be the one that involves a cruise on its UNESCO World Heritage-protected canals and a deep-dive into the world of Heineken, the city's most famous export.

Your 1-hour Lovers cruise leaves from right by Centraal Station. Seeing the city from the water is probably the best vantage point - plus you definitely won't get hit by a cyclist while in the boat! Plug into your audio guide and learn the history of the 16th and 17th-century monuments as you float on by.

In the Heineken Experience you'll be led through the brewing process and history of Heineken, before winding up in the disco-style bar for a few free beers.

It's an all-in-one Amsterdam spectacular. Cheers!

The cruis was Excellent, it was my fourth time here & my partners first time here so was just great for us both. Thank you. The heineken tour was awful from the start & we didnt actually go in, after pre paying & then asking to que after rushing there for 2pm as required & then asked to que i was most upset & we left the que, not one member of staff acknowledged that we was leaving & we went on with our day, this trip was for my boyfriends birthday & the heineken tour was the only thing he wanted to do but time was pressing as we had a ferry and the coach was 4.30. So therefor yes the canal cruise was brilliant but the heinken tour was a bismal.

Everything's fine

Heineken experience was completely unexpected and well worth a visit. Not the usual beer tour. Next door to the factory is a pancake house where u will get a fabulous meal whatever time of day too.
Canal cruise was ok but a little disappointing tbh. Boat ride was fine and it was professional but actually this wasn’t all that. Can’t quite put my finger on it but felt a bit flat:
All in all though it was worth doing.
