  • Overview & Itinerary


    Board a canal boat for a traditional cruise through the maze of canals that run through the wonderful city of Amsterdam. You will sail past old warehouses, docks and boatyards dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries serving as reminders of the city’s past as a seaport. From the canal you will have the perfect view of many beautiful churches and distinctive houses which proudly line the riverbanks.

    Located in the original Heineken brewing facility, the Heineken Experience is an interactive tour that allows visitors to explore Heineken like never before. Guests will have the chance to learn about the history of the internationally famous beer, the family that created it, and the process of brewing Heineken.


    Board your cruise boat at Damrak 26 and explore the Venice of the North with its 90 islands, 1,500 bridges and one hundred kilometres of canals in total. On your cruise you will pass through the seaport of Amsterdam, which used to be the main port of the Dutch East India Company – imagine the colossal trading ships sailing in with cargos of silk, cotton, salt and exotic spices. You will also pass residential areas, with many houses finished during the Golden Era, to get a feel for the way of life of the Amsterdammers. The cruise will take approximately 1 hour.

    After the cruise take part in the Heineken Experience, which offers guests the opportunity to view Heineken memorabilia and watch old commercials among other activities, making it an alternative to the many art museums in Amsterdam. Ending on a refreshing note, the tour culminates with the chance to sample some freshly brewed Heineken.
