We were able to sample 7 great cheeses and really get a good understanding of the process along with how aging affects the cheese. They were paired with a few different wines and some very informative insight by... More

This activity involves sampling six cheeses with a few wine pairings. The bricks are in front of you, so you can slice off whatever you want as you go. There's also a few wine pairings. For 15€ I think it is well priced. The instructor walks you through smelling the cheese and taking notes on it (nutty and what not).... More

Come hungry. Worth doing tasted 6 of their Reypenaer and Wyngaard cheeses. Interesting history and have some great tastes. They have a suggested pairing (red, white, port) for each cheese and it was very nice with the pairings almost all being an exquisite match. Highly recommend as a way to spend an hour to learn a bit more about cheeses... More

My husband and I signed up for the cheese tasting on a whim after our tour guide mentioned it earlier in the day. Boy, am I glad we ever did! It proved to be a highlight during our stay in Amsterdam. The "cheese master" was excellent - very knowledgeable and humorour throughout. We learned the origin of "Gouda" as well... More

Wow, This was an absolutely amazing experience. For a small price you get to taste 6 different cheeses (As much as you want) and 3 near full glasses of wine to match with them. Friendly, knowledgeable staff walk you through the process of cheese making and you get a certificate at the end. HIGHLY recommended!

We were recommended to visit the Reypenaur cheese tasting and were not dissapointed. Ron was an excellent host, very informative and entertaining. The cheeses are matured in a traditional way and the history was fascinating.
