Absolutely love the experience. I’ve got to know much about the Bols history and how their liquors are produced. It was extremely entertaining

A lovely hour or so out, could perhaps be part of a day in the museums area. Reasonably priced, smart and interesting. This is something you and your loved one can enjoy. There is lots to see do and smell, lots of factual and succinct information so you're not on your feet in one place for hours. With a lovely cocktail and liquor experience in a 'vibrating' room. Sounds weird, but trust me, it's great. Must do trip.
