    The cruise was ok. Definitely not as fun as the one we took with our Ice Bar ticket but it was still a good cruise because it showed us a different route and different locations. The captain just wasn’t as involved or as funny as the one on the other cruise. The Heiniken Experience was amazing! It was very informative and loads of fun! Discovering the factory at your own pace was something we really enjoyed and the fun pictures, videos etc were great. This is loads of fun, even if you don’t drink beer (like me). There’s tons of neat facts, things to touch and test and to experience for all ages.

    The brewery tour was fun and interactive. It is go at your own pace for most of it so you can go as fast or as slow as you want. I felt a bit rushed as my boat tour was only 1.25 hours after the tour and I would advise to ask for a bit more time. The boat tour was ok. It is audio over headphones and overall not as interactive as I thought. I prefer an in person tour.

    we really enjoyed the Heineken experience, it’s very immersive with a lot of 4D shows. We also did the canal cruise which was included in our tickets, and we really enjoyed this. We sat at the back of the boat and we’re able to get lots of photos and videos without windows getting in the way.
