I would definitely come here again it was awesome and delicious. I loved the cheese so much that I bought some of my own. It was with no doubt in my mind the best cheese I have ever put in my mouth. I wish I could go there everyday to get my cheese. The flavor is so explosive on my... More

7 friends and I attended the cheese tasting whilst on a girls on tour trip to Amsterdam as we wanted to do something a bit different. The workshop was brilliant and Ron (the guy who ran the class) was fantastic. We all leant a lot about the different cheeses and how they paired well with wines and port and how... More

I visited the Reypenaer cheese tasting with friends this month during our short break to the city. We came across it when booking a boat tour as an add on. For €20 we had our cheese tasting and boat ride. Fantastic value! Especially as I was taken back by the cheese tasting room, the friendly staff and fantastic cheese &... More

This is a cheese tasting experience well worth the visit! The instructor was very informative as we tried 5 cheeses from the Reypaneur brand. They were paired with wines and gave us an overview of the cheese making process as well as the different flavours of each cheese. Very interesting way to learn about the Dutch!

We thought this tasting might be just a cliché tourist thing to do, and in a way it is too, however we were pleasantly surprised how informative and fun it actually was! The guy who conducted the tasting was funny, gave us great tips and information. As a cheese enthusiast this is a must! The tasting takes about an hour,... More

Really enjoyable hour tasting lots of wonderful cheeses and drinking lots of wine. Learnt so much from our wonderful host Daphne. Really great tour well worth the money. Pay the extra for the special tasting you won't regret it as the gifts received are great.

The whole cheese/wine tasting experience was delightful! We learned a lot and ate some delicious cheeses. We found Reypenaer Cheese in the States for about 10 times the cost, so stock up while you're there!

We were quite interested to learn about Dutch cheese as you don't normally hear too much about it, and when we saw this activity rated so highly on TripAdvisor we thought we would give it a go! We had booked ahead and it turned out to be a really hot day in Amsterdam so we were pleased to go into... More
