I sat down last Sunday afternoon with about a dozen other folks - and we were treated to 5 cheeses, paired with red and white wine, as well as port. Our host guided us through the process, and we were encouraged to taste as much cheese as we wanted. Very nice experience - and well worth the money

Great value for 15€. The cheese was really nice, and the "cheese master" was knowledgeable and funny, which helped excuse the fact that he only gave the guys the cheese cutting boards. The wine was paired well and there was a lot of group participation in trying to figure out what the cheeses smelled and treated like. Would recommend.

I have never done cheese or wine tasting, but for €15 it was a bargain. This was some of the vest cheese I have ever tasted and several glasses of wine paired nicely to cheeses. I would recommend this and would totally go again.

The cheese was delicious and interesting, and it was paired with white and red wine and port. The presenter showed us a short movie and talked about how the cheese is made.

This was one of the best attractions I visited. The host was fun and the cheese is literally the best cheese ever. I would highly recommend the wine and cheese tasting if you have time. You'll learn a lot, and get to try a lot of cheese! If you don't have time to do the tasting, I feel sorry for... More

I have been to Amsterdam 4 times and this is one of the best things I have done there. Informative, friendly, delicious cheese and wine, and an absolute bargain - what more could you ask for? I will be purchasing some of the cheese online for Christmas!

Definitely worth your time! The best cheese paired with different wines. We tasted 6 cheeses and I ate so much that lunch was not needed! Highlight of Amsterdam :)

I went to the cheese tasting here and it was great! While I enjoy all food I've never been someone who goes crazy over cheese, but this was such a unique experience. I learned so much and very much enjoyed tasting their different varieties of cheese. I was a solo traveler, but I imagine this would be most fun doing... More

This will just be a short simple review. Must try is the XO cheese. It's my absolute favorite with amazing flavor that will go with wine or whiskey. If you are near this shop, they have samples for you to try. It's one of the best in Amsterdam.
