If you have a couple hours to spare and a passion for beer, the Heineken Experience in Amsterdam is a great way to spend an afternoon. Maybe even kick off your day, like my friends and I did.
The tour costs 21 euros if you pay in person or you can save 3 euros if you book online. If you choose to book online, you also get a great perk of being able to schedule your own tour time slot. Included with your tour and cost of admission, Heineken awards you with a map of the city and two beer-tokens to redeem at the end of your tour. Nothing like pounding a couple of Heinekens at the best Dam bar in town.
The Heineken Experience also offers private tours for 55 euros per person. This tour of course has a lot more perks including a private guide, additional beer, snacks and your very own personalized Heineken bottle. This tour is roughly 2.5 – 3 hours. If you’re feeling hungry and have some time to kill before or after your tour, we highly recommend getting pancakes at the famously known Upstairs Pancake House nearby.
