We had a delightful ride into the countryside from Alkmaar to Egmond aan Zee, through woodland, farm land and dunes. Jennifer (Jen) was a delightful guide, who came to our rescue at the last minute when another bike ride operator cancelled at short notice. It was well worth the expense, not to have to rely on Google maps to find a bike ride and anyway the added bonus of local knowledge is incalculable.

I had an absolutely wonderful time on my Cheese Market tour with Jen. Due to Jen’s connections we were lucky enough to sit on the inside of the fences on bench seats whilst everyone else had to stand like sardines on the other side. What a view... you are so close to the action! We got to meet some of the cheese runners, sample yummy Gouda and my personal highlight - I got my photo with a massive wheel of Gouda. Jen explains everything that is happening and answers any questions. And as for Jen herself, she is a wonderful guide and lovely person. Next time I’m in Amsterdam I’ll definitely come back and do another tour in this beautiful little town. Getting there from Amsterdam was very easy, one train from Centraal station. If you’re thinking of seeing the cheese market, trust me - you want to do it on this tour!
