If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides, a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
Go beyond the iconic Heineken, Grolsch and Amstel brands and delve deeper into the fascinating world of Dutch beer on this walking tour that incorporates great cafes and drink stops!
To begin, meet your enthusiastic local guide in front of the BIERKONING shop, a short distance from the original Heineken building in the Amsterdam center, an appropriate starting place for this refreshing adventure! Walk the beautiful streets of central Amsterdam, stopping in the downtown area to sample local beers and learn about the Belgium and German influences that have shaped the Dutch brewing industry. Learn about the spots where Amsterdam warehouses used to store beer back in the 15th century then take a detour through the red light district to visit a small brewery located within this infamous area.
We visit another brewery just opened and finish the adventure at a legendary local beer haunt that has more than 200 different varieties of beer! Anyone who drinks beer will be amazed at the range on offer here. Choose to sip on a pale lager, gulp some bitter ale or sample a strong triple malt to celebrate the end of the tour. Raise a glass with friends, make a toast to Amsterdam, you are free to head back to your accommodation or stay on at the beer hall for another sneaky tipple.
