    The Heineken Experience was excellent. Lots of fun. The Canal tour was disappointing because the recording of the tour with the ear buds was off track twice and then we were late. Things were described .any minutes late after passing g the important sites. The driver wS not engaging.

    It was confusing where to pick up the Blue Boat cruise. 3 locations were listed on our ticket but only 1 location was open. We went to the wrong one & missed the 4:30 tour because we had to walk 15 minutes to the next location. Luckily they were very nice & let us take the 5:00 canal ride. We then went to the Heineken Experience & did not see a time posted on our ticket. They went ahead & let us in. We enjoyed both tours but were very frustrated before the tours began. Please only list the 1 location of the boat cruise.

    Great Experience

    I was really impressed with both the Heineken experience and the canal cruise. This is a must on any Amsterdam trip. However, I initially had a bad experience with one of the customer servie advisors at the blue boat company. I had bought a ticket for the Heineken experience for the 16th of January and you could do the canal cruise on any day, as per my understanding, which is fine. So on the 15th I was visiting the Van Gogh museum, on my way I saw the ticket office of the blue boat company next to the hard rock cafe. I advised the guy that I had a dual ticket and I was just double checking if I could come any day for the canal cruise, the guy told me they do not do any dual tickets and that I have been scammed and advised it could also be for some other company. I assured him that it was definately the blue boat company but he was not intrested. I did not have the ticket on me on the day. The next day I went to the Heineken experience and tried the blue boat company next to the Heineken and everything was fine. So the person at the other blue boat ticket office gave me an unnecessary scare and was a bit rude and not intrested, this is not good customer service. However, I was impressed with both the experiences.

    Two ways to see Amsterdam: walk through the streets or take a canal cruise. Fascinating and vibrant city and canal cruises are extremely educational and entertaining. A great way to learn some of the city's history and feature. There are many different tours operating. Be aware that you will be expected to make a gratuity on disembarking. Great experience. Loved it.

    The Heineken tour was cool but my favorite part was cruising the canals and learning the history of Amsterdam. Would recommend this one.

    So the driver was running into the wall, the headphones that they provide you can’t hear the presentation. It was a horrible experience

    If you are doing the Heineken experience and you enjoy drinking, take the tour after going to Heineken because you can start three drinks at heineken and finish up buying and drinking more suring the cruise.
