Spend a day dedicated to two of Amsterdam’s quintessential highlights – canals and Heineken – with this Super Saver that offers you a visit to the Heineken Experience and the Amsterdam Canals Pizza Cruise.

At the fascinating Heineken Experience, learn about Holland’s beer heritage and the beer-making process of one of the most famous names in brewing history.

You’ll pass the city’s famous gabled houses and see popular sights such as the Royal Palace, the Skinny Bridge and the National Monument.

A major international railway hub, it is used by 162,000 passengers a day,[1]making it the second busiest railway station in the country after Utrecht Centraal and the most visited Rijksmonument of the Netherlands.[2][3]

National and international railway services at Amsterdam Centraal are provided by NS, the principal rail operator in the Netherlands. Amsterdam Centraal is the northern terminus of Amsterdam Metro Routes 51, 53, 54, and stop for 52 operated by municipal public transport operator GVB.

Since 1997, the station building, underground passages, metro station and the surrounding area have been undergoing major reconstruction and renovation works to accommodate the North-South Line metro route, which was opened on 22 July 2018.

Pass By: St. Nicholas Basilica, Prins Hendrikkade 73, 1012 AD Amsterdam The Netherlands

The church is built on a previously urban site, necessitating a northwest-southeast axis to be adopted, rather than the standard east-west axis. It lies between the street, Prins Hendrikkade, and the canal, Oudezijds Kolk.

When built, the church was called St. Nicholas inside the Walls, i.e. inside the Amsterdam City wall, the oldest part of the Amsterdam defence works. The architect, Adrianus Bleijs (1842-1912) designed the church based on a combination of several revival styles: the most prominent being the Neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance.

(Dutch: Heineken ontvangst- en informatiecentrum). The attraction grew to become one of Amsterdam's most popular tourist attractions and by 2001 the visitor centre changed its name to "Heineken Experience".[2]

After a year of extensive remodeling and expansion, the Heineken Experience reopened to visitors on 3 November, 2008. The latest transformation of the visitor experience comprises four levels of historical artifacts, product exploration and sampling, and interactive exhibits which employ the latest high-tech multi-media technologies.[3]

Pass By: Houseboat Museum, Prinsengracht 296 K, 1016 HW Amsterdam The Netherlands

A houseboat (different from boathouse, which is a shed for storing boats) is a boat that has been designed or modified to be used primarily as a home. Some houseboats are not motorized, because they are usually moored, kept stationary at a fixed point and often tethered to land to provide utilities. However, many are capable of operation under their own power. Float house is a Canadian and American term for a house on a float (raft); a rough house may be called a shanty boat.[1] In Western countries, houseboats tend to be either owned privately or rented out to holiday-goers, and on some canals in Europe, people dwell in houseboats all year round. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, Amsterdam, London, and Paris

This is probable the best value for money. The Heineken Experiance is excellent and you get to drink 3 beers each. I am not a beer drinker but it tasted different to the Australian beer we purchase. It was ok. The guide is very informative and each stage of the tour is very interactive which we liked. You make your own way then to the Pizza cruise which starts from the centre of Amsterdam near central station. The pizza cruise is great there is commentary on the boat explaining all the land marks and the history of the canal. You get to choose your own pizza, drink and ice cream. We loved this cruise.

Fabulous Experience! Highly entertaining and interesting! I learned a lot about the brand. I especially loved the super cold Heineken at the end of our tour and it was cool to have a bottle of Heineken engraved with our names-great souvenir! Pizza cruise was amazing. I loved the whole experience cruising down the canals enjoying a nice glass of wine!

This was a great tour. We loved the Heineken Experience which involved a great tour of the brewery and was very informative. There were guides in each of the areas to explain the brewing process. We loved seeing the horses who pull the big beer wagon and of course the beers and the view from the top was excellent. We also purchased a barbeque lunch at the top. All of the staff were very friendly. We also enjoyed our canal pizza cruise which was very well organized with delicious pizzas and unlimited wine and beer. A great way to see the city in the late afternoon. A definite recommendation from us and we would do it again.

This super saver tour was great! The canal cruise covered many sights not covered by a land tour. The Heineken Experience was different than just a brewery tour. Many different hands on displays to try brewery tour informative good for all ages allow at least 3 or 4 hours to experience it all. The three beer samples only for adults were large. The pizza, chicken wings, wine/beer dinner was very good pizza, etc, ordered per your choice and picked up along the canal wine and beer plentiful Captain and Crew friendly and very attentive.. Well worth the price!

The Heineken Experience was extremely educational and most enjoyable. With regard to The Canals Pizza Cruise, the pizza's were great but there was no commentary as to what we were seeing/passing while cruising the Canals.

A must do trip, Heineken is fun and the Canals at night are an experience. Food and wine on tap..

Heineken experience is brilliant, the life of a bottle of Heineken is cool. The canal cruise is well worth the money and choosing a time around sunset is well advised.

• Submitted 27 Nov 2016
The Heineken Experience was great, you get 2 beers at the end with your ticket/bracelet. Many interactive things to do. I suggest you get to the experience early as when I left around 1pm, the lineup was quite long. The Canals Pizza cruise was also good, you see all the sights from a canal view. Servers were very attentative and your drink never went emptyunlimited soda, beer, and wine. There was no bathroom on board so make sure you go before you board.

The Heineken experience is definitely one not to miss. I was pleasantly surprised at all of the different interactive things they had available, it was a lot of fun and you could spend a lot of time in there if you wanted. The 2 beers at the end were pretty nice too! I would HIGHLY recommend the Pizza cruise! The food and drinks were delicious, the service was excellent, the waitresses even turned into knowledgeable tour guides with all kinds of great information. It was a perfect route where you got to see a lot of different sights. It was nice getting off of your feet, sitting back, relaxing with a drink and taking it all in from the canal level!!

Great experience ..... A little trouble exchanging our voucher for actual tickets. Heineken could not scan our Viator coupon. Heaps to do at Heineken brewery very hands on and the place was jumping. Loved the cruise also. Getting directions as to where to board the boat was a bit of a run around but we got there eventually. Great pizzas and icecream. Lovely crew on board the pizza cruise boat..
• Submitted 15 Sep 2016
Fantastic tours, but please be aware that these are not together and you have to get to the other side of the city to start the cruise. Other than that great.

I went with my 21YO Daughter and 19 YO son so this was one they chose. Both the Heineken tour and the pizza canal cruise were great fun and we enjoyed the tour of brewery, free beer samples and stunning canal views immensely. Highly recommended.
• Submitted 05 Aug 2016
Enjoyed the cruise, plenty to eat and drink. Heineken was mainly for my husband and son, found it a bit rushed at the end when they got their beers.
