My family and I signed up for this beer tour and were not disappointed in any way. In total our tour was a group of eight that were a lot of fun. And the tour guide was fantastic! So much information and such good company to talk to. By the end of the tour we all felt like we had made some new friends and we all hugged goodbye. I highly recommend it!
Arthur was a fantastic guide. The tour had a great balance of types of bars small dive type, microbrewery, locals favorites. On the walks between the locations, he also filled in local history and interesting tidbits. Overall, would highly recommend!
This tour was well worth the time and money. Can I was an excellent and welcoming guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. The small group setting was perfect and I would recommend this tour to anyone-especially the solo traveler looking for a fun night out!
The key to a good tour is the guide and our guide was OUTSTANDING!! He was knowledgeable...and had selected great bars with different types of beers for us to sample. Samples were plenty...full size beers. Loved getting a tour of Amsterdam everywhere we walked as well. Perfect to end the night near the Red Light District so we didn't have far to go. Guide really tried to find us the best match for our liking at each pub. Loved that it was only a small group....felt like a personal tour.
This was an excellent tour. Only the two of us with the tour leader, so we had lots of time to talk and discuss all aspects of beer and brewing. The bars and walk were adjusted to our requirements and interest and the leader's knowledge of the beer scene in Amsterdam was outstanding. I would recommend this tour to all interested Brewers and beer lovers.
Fun beer tasting with a great guide. Gives you facts about both beer and the city. Also takes you to a distillery as a side stop.
We took this tour in mid October and had a fabulous time. Sean was a lot of fun. I'd definitely recommend this tour. All of the beers we tried were excellent.
The tour was only a walking tour in Amsterdam.. No specific facs or info about beers, neither visit inside a Brewery.. Only in a bar in a brewery but not anything about the production. The Tour Guide was quite interested about telling any history or facts.. I have been many others that have been much better.. thanks to our own crowd the tour was nice cause of the company..
Not very impressed with this tour, the price paid or the professionalism of our tour leader.
For our 30 each, we got three SMALL draft beers 0.25L or 0.33L, a very crowded and chaotic environment in the three spots we were led to, and not a great bit more.
- Sean was 20 minutes late arriving at Beer Temple, the designated meeting place
- A phone call to the listed phone number for Urban Adventures asking about the late arrival of the tour guide went directly to voicemail not reassuring for clients
-He had no tables/seats reserved for our group in this small, busy bar, so we 11 were crammed around a very tight couple of small tables upstairs.
-Sean had to borrow a pen from one of the clients so he could take beer orders for everyone, and even then, it took quite a while for him to get organized
- The tour was scheduled for dinnertime on a Saturday night in Spring not a great time for this kind of tour if we want to be able to be seated, get service, or even hear/talk with each other. All three of the spots Sean brought us to were incredibly busy, and we had to jam ourselves into corners and benches. Sean did not seem to have anything organized or pre-arranged with the destinations, so there was a lot of time wasted with how to pay, whos ordering, what we want, etc.
In all, this should have and could have been planned and executed a whole lot better. It wasn't Sean's first night doing this tour, and he should have had better preparation, planning, coordination with the establishments, and a less hectic experience for his clients.
This was the 2nd time taking this tour and we had a great time. We got to see some amazing little places and enjoyed the beer. Shaun made just the right beer selections for us. A great way to spend a few hours, we made note of our favorite places and can't wait to go back!!
