I can thoroughly recommend the hop on/hop off canal cruises – only 20 odd Euros, lots of commentary, history and interesting sights.
We got off the cruise at the Heineken Brewery (about 500m from the entrance) and met my niece who, although she has lived here for six years, had never done “The Heineken Experience”. Costing about 16 Euros, you get a self-guided tour and two drinks at the end. There is an interactive ride (where we get brewed – taken through the process as if you are the product) which although a bit corny, is lots of fun. At the end we had a few of the freebies – it tastes so much nicer here than it does in NZ. Dominion Breweries wreck it when they brew it locally!
