House of Bols Reviews
I went to House of Bols having booked a 6pm slot for my husband and I to do the tour and cocktail sampling on Saturday evening. On arrival I was met by a member of staff who asked me why I was there..... more »
Really really enjoyed the museum/experience, really well done and very interesting. Staff were very enthusiastic and friendly from the start. Beautiful displays around every corner. Lots of focus on..... more »
As expected it's a tourist trap. Self guided tour of the history of the house, they show all the different flavours available which is interesting with a smell test. The bar is very busy during the weekends, no where to sit, can get loud and the cocktails are average quality. Nice branded gifts available at the shop and good selection of bar ware.
One of the best brewery/distillery tours I've ever been on! The audio guide was great and I loved how interactive everything was. The displays were also unique and visually appealing with a lot of photo opportunities along the way. The drink at the end is also a nice finish. If you purchase the more expensive ticket you also get a small bottle of Bols to take home which is definitely worth the small price.
