Amsterdam: Cheese Experience with Gift and Discount

1. Amsterdam: Cheese Experience with Gift and Discount

Witness an authentic demonstration on how Dutch cheese is made. Learn how much milk is needed for one kilogram of cheese and see the equipment that is used to make cheese, all in downtown Amsterdam. The friendly staff of Henri Willig, donned in traditional Dutch clothing, will explain everything about the cheese-making process in a 5-10 minute demonstration. Afterwards, browse the shop, which also offers a wide selection of souvenirs and other typical Dutch treats such as stroopwafels (syrup waffles) and chocolate.  With over 20 different flavors of Gouda cheese, the choice may not be easy; a sample tasting allows you to try almost all the flavors, making the decision much more manageable.  The experienced staff is also ready to assist you in making your choice between, for example, fenugreek, hot and spicy, and pesto. Grab one to enjoy at home, or to give away as a special gift.

Amsterdam: Private Walking Tour from Westerpark to Jordaan

Join a friendly local guide to get an authentic experience of Amsterdam on a personalized tour of relaxed Westerpark and ultra-cool Jordaan, two very different neighborhoods that help to paint a full picture of the city.

Explore Westerpark, a neighborhood centered around its eponymous park just beyond Amsterdam's famous canal belt. Take a tranquil stroll through the sprawling lawns (one of the largest green spaces in the city) to Zuiveringshal West — a gargantuan cultural venue that’s the size of a small village housed inside a former gasworks, lined with all sorts of creative gems, from theater to photography to TV studios. Since you're here, why not pop into TonTon Club — a retro arcade where you can grab a drink and a couple of tokens and test your skill with classics like Mortal Kombat, Dance Dance Revolution, and the humble claw machine? Then, snap pictures of Nooderkerk, a 17th-century church, and the impossibly quaint shops, bakeries, and shops lining the streets (pick the prettiest one for a pastry and coffee) as you make your way toward the Jordaan district to see an Amsterdam of a different kind. See the 400-year-old Westerkerk, an iconic monument at the edge of the Jordaan, before exploring the art galleries, restaurants, markets and street musicians that make this neighborhood — and De 9 Straatjes, the quirky streets lined with vintage boutiques and concept stores right next door — famous across the Netherlands.

A delightful experience in an enchanting district.

Riccardo was absolutely superb. He was born and raised in Amsterdam and attended university in England. His knowledge of the city and the area we toured is astounding. We all enjoyed visiting the Jordaan a delightful and charming slice of Amsterdam away from the maddening crowds. His answered all of our questions about all aspects of the city. This was one tour where I felt slightly guilty as I left feeling I received more than I paid for by the end of the tour. Reserve now.... you will not regret!

RECOMMENDED VISIT

The guide has been great, he showed us the city in detail and explanations and then we had a lot of free time to enjoy the cheese market. Back in Amsterdam we could enjoy the sight of blooming tulip fields.

Very beautiful walk, where we can have access to this side of Dutch culture. Plenty of free time to stroll on your own. Everything was punctual and the guide Helena was great!

A very interesting, entertaining "tour" with a very extensive and delicious tasting! I can only recommend it.

Anna was a great guide. Very knowledgeable, patient and willing to take me to see whatever I asked for.
