A must for cheese lovers. Spent a very enjoyable hour in the cheese tasting school room under the strict control of our Dutch teacher! Tasted six lovely different cheeses accompanied by different wines and port. We learned a lot about cheese making and the difference between goat and cow digestive systems. Must book beforehand as places are limited. Worth the... More

Went to this on our visit to Amsterdam, it was my husbands birthday so we wanted to do something different. We found the experience really enjoyable and very informative and even bought some of the tasty cheese afterwards, would definitely recommend this as a must do when visiting Amsterdam.

Lot of bang for the buck, great tasting with lovely cheese, wine, and service. Book in advance as space is limited, and they do accept all major credit cards.

Have to say, I hadn't been a massive fan of goats cheese before coming here and now I can't get enough. Glass of white wine and red wine, and a glass of delicious port accompanied the amazing cheeses and you even get a nice little certificate after. Overall such a good experience and I can't wait to return!

We wandered in here one cold rainy day and left with what can only be described as a warm cheese and wine glow! The set-up was like a little classroom and we instantly took the tasting a little more seriously, well, at least until the wine arrived! The session was informative and encouraged everyone to get fully involved by recording... More

My friend and I are college students traveling Europe on our spring break, and were just in Amsterdam the past weekend. We each bought a 5-ticket Holland pass; with the Holland pass, you get two "gold" tickets and 3 "silver" tickets. The golds will get you into bigger things like Keukenhof, Rijksmuseum, and Heineken Experience, and silvers are for the... More

The wine and cheese tasting was a terrific diversion on a busy day of sightseeing in Amsterdam. We visited the Anne Frank House earlier and walked the few blocks over to the Reypenaer cheese tasting room. We had a reservation for the 4:30 tasting, but arrived much earlier and they were able to take us in for the 1:30 (I... More

This cheese shop in a very nice neighbourhood is absolutely recommended. If you want to take part in the tasting in the basement you should probaly book in advance to avoid dissapointment, however you can still taste the different cheeses in the shop.Wines are included in the price, which for most makes this even more interesting
