What people are saying about South Holland

Very nice attention and amazing food! I’d recommend giving a wider variety of sides to choose for the fondue and that way people can actually decide what they want. Overall a very nice experience if paired with a good wine and some friends!

Warm welcome from a very friendly employee. It was special to hear and see how much Heineken meant to especially Crooswijk and what kind of social entrepreneur the Heineken family was/is. Beer also tasted great. Recommended!

Well put together and interesting tour. I’m still dreaming about the foods we tried. The fresh herring, OMG! ;-) Really enjoyable afternoon. Thanks!

It was super interesting! The tour guy was amazing! But the best part was the food and beer! 100% recommend!

very good experience, we learned a lot. On the other hand, no visit in French, therefore taken in English.
