Our host, Ron was so first so accommodating to get us in when the class was already full. On top of that, Ron was so engaging and knowledgable of the cheeses that made you want to eat any and all of them daily. Highly recommend experiencing this while in Amsterdam.

They don't say you have to book, there is nothing in the window to indicate you need to book, or when the next available session is. Wasted 30 minutes waiting for them to open at 12:00 to be be told by a snooty girl inside that the first available session was 15:00 that day!

Very informative interactive tour. You get to smell, taste, evaluate and pair the cheese. There is 6 cheeses and 3 wines to taste. At the end you get a certificate to prove you a professional cheese taster. Our host had a excellent knowledge of the cheese and made the experience enjoyable. Would recommend to any one.

A fun hour spent in central Amsterdam, tried some great cheese and learned a bit too! The host was very lively and lovely and I would certainly recommend to anyone who loves a bit of "cheese" on their holiday in Amsterdam!

Great cheese & wine, with help on pairing the two together. Friendly informative staff. A great way to spend a spare hour. Shop was more typical of Dutch cheese, other shops seemed a bit touristy.

We came across it by accident and went in on a spur of the moment decision. They found us a place on a cheese tasting starting in a few minutes- it looked like they ran every hour. There was a video explaining the history of the cheese makers as well as a talk and a chance to try as much... More

the place offers great cheese tasting, with wine and port, for 15 euro you can try different cheeses - made from goat or cow mils, and as young as 6 months to as old as 2,5 years, with some information and a shop selling these delicacies

This lace had some good cheeses and it was great to be able t actually have some samples prior to buying. Staff was ok. No one asked to assist us so we made our way around on our own. I wuldn't cal it a fantastic experience by any means, but the cheeses were good.

We spent three days in Amsterdam prior to a cruise to St. Petersburg. We saw the Reypenaer cheese/wine tasting experience on Trip Advisor. It was a really fun and "tasty" experience, plus they offered a discount on cheese and wine purchased on that day!
