Thoroughly enjoyed this tour...
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Interesting to learn a bit about the history and how the liqueurs are made. Then the samples at the end. The girl behind the bar asked me to name my favourite cocktail. Then she proceeded to make a fabulous clone of a pina colada using Bols liqueurs.

Unique Experience

Cocktail Workshop House of Bols in Amsterdam
The combination of the Bols tour, cocktail making, and bar was a great deal, though the cocktails you make during the class are fairly simple. Make sure to show up an hour before the cocktail class starts as that is when you complete the tour.

Cocktail Workshop House of Bols in Amsterdam
Very fun. Kiki was my bartender and made it a fun, personal experience. Thank you! The cocktail experience made it worth it. The tour itself is fun if you did it with friends. Being a solo traveler it was less engaging than I had hoped. But I still had a lot of fun, drank more than a few cocktails and enjoyed myself overall. I think you will too

An absolutely fantastic, helpful friendly barman/cocktail teacher, the lessons and hints were worth the trip alone and the three cocktails were fabulous.
