We had a super friendly humorous boat captain. The combination of audio facts and the captain's input made the canal cruise more interesting. The boat was clean and spacious. We got there earlier than our time slot but the Blue Boat Company were happy to switch our time to an earlier slot. The canals we cruised on had lots of interesting buildings along them and the views around were very scenic. All in all this canal cruise made my weekend trip to Amsterdam very memorable.

An interesting tour about the history of Heineken's first Brewery and how they became established worldwide. The interactive experience and chances to win extra drinks tokens was a plus. This was an enjoyable tour and the drinks in the bar at the end made this a good addition to.our weekend in Amsterdam.

Maybe a little bit over priced for what it is but so much fun!!!! You get lots of free drinks throughout, especially if the people in your time slot don’t drink ;)) Loads of fun souvenirs so make sure you save your money. A must see when in Amsterdam 💋
