    Average stadium, needs sound upgrade
    Went to see Coldplay. A good size stadium, but sound was average, needs upgrading. I was shocked at the end of the show, when I asked for water and the bar charged me 4 euros for tap water. Need to provide small cups with a free water tap

    Great tour
    Had to change our booking twice with minimal fuss. Opted for the audio tour which we couldn’t get to work. Didn’t take away from the experience as we did it at our own pace and spent plenty time doing so. Enjoyed the experience

    Enjoyed the guided tour, disappointed with the VR
    Our family of 4 enjoyed the 75 minute Guided Full Experience Tour. Our tour guide was friendly and informative and in each area we visited, we had plenty of time for self-exploration and picture taking. The VR experience part was disappointing, as you were given a cardboard box to put your cell phone in (note that a larger phone and/or a bulky case may not fit), and this was not really part of the tour itself anyway. You then had to carry this around with you. We were told that the VR could be done from home, and we did try it 2 weeks later, but the picture orientation was opposite the cardboard box orientation – just did not work well. We did visit the arena during summer concert season, so could not see the pitch as it was covered with metal plates. After the guided part of the tour, you can explore the trophy room/museum. The gift shop had a wide variety of items. Easy to get to by metro train from Amsterdam Centraal Station – no connections and entrance was a five-minute walk from station. There are several bars, stores, restaurants and a movie theater in the area between the train station and stadium.

    Great Football Arena
    A great experience and a fabulous arena. Well organized venue and a great (noisy) crowd made this a must do football stadium visit. Pricey buying tickets from home(UK), but still worth it.

    Brilliant experience
    From the time we entered to when we left it was a great experience. The staff were friendly and very helpful - when we went around we did the self tour however in every area there was someone to tell you about the room you were in . One particular lad, who was in the away dressing room was spectacular!! he and my husband could have talked football forever, he even caught up with us to give us more information about the museum. You are not rushed - you go at your own pace and even if you are not a football fan it was good experience. Reasonably priced compared to other clubs we have been to- lots to see

    Who knew a football stadium visit could be such good fun.
    My 16 year old son and I visited. We booked a guided tour. Our tour guide was brilliant. He had phenomenal knowledge of football, and had incredible stories. It was great to hear a loyal Ajax fan getting his dream job, and his passion shone through I know little about football and still really enjoyed myself. The shop is expensive as you would expect but you do get 10% from going on the tour.

    Stadium Tour
    Went on the stadium tour during the summer whilst in Amsterdam. Stadium is very easy to get to via public transport and train station is right outside the stadium. Tour guide was very knowledgeable with some great information about Ajax and the stadium. Answered any questions too. Only disappointment on the tour was not being able to see the pitch as it was covered up for a concert but I knew about this in advance. Club shop is also very good and because we booked tickets in advance they gave a discount on items bought in the shop.

    Quicker than expected
    Smaller than expected so didn't take long...bar on site was nice! Staff very knowledgeable, we didn't book a guided tour but still made time to talk to us. 10% discount in shop with ticket doesn't mean much as so much on sale and discount not available with sale goods

The self guided tour is great but quite short, almost as soon as you start you're in the players tunnel & on the pitch, which was surprising. Some information is available on the walls as you walk around, but there could've been more.

Went to see the Holland V Ireland game. The handling of the away Irish fans was disgraceful. A bottleneck tru security with only 2 people checking fanss entering, further exacerbated by 2 gates for entry. Flags taken from Irish fans who are known for not causing any trouble at games. Pre game fans redirected on a long route to the away section..very poor organisation a dismal experience.

We went to the guided tour. It was so good! The guide was excellent and we really enjoyed. We got to see and hear so much from this Stadium and Ajax. It was sure worth the visit.
