Guided Walk in Gouda & Cheese Tasting

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £59.83 GBP / Adult
Make all your cheese dreams come true as you visit the 17th-century cheese farm Hoogerwaard, where gouda and other varieties are produced. Tour the farm and learn the age-old process of cheese making, before topping off your visit with a cheese tasting of three different cheeses. Savor each bite and learn the difference between Jong, Belegen, and Oud cheeses. Next, visit the tiny hamlet of Gouda, a 13th-century town named after the cheese that was sold during the Middle Ages on the central market square. Stroll the cobblestone streets with your guide, passing canals and medieval buildings, admiring this picture-perfect example of a Dutch medieval town. See the famous cheese market and the towering St. Jans Church, which dominates much of this charming village. You may be surprised by the mixture of medieval charm with modern-day shops and restaurants, making this town all the more appealing.
  • Tour the Hoogerwaard Cheese Farm, which knows a thing or two about cheese, as it has been producing cheeses since the 17th century.
  • Delight in a delicious sampling of three different, mouth-watering cheeses that prove this cheese farm is the real deal, and learn about the varieties.
  • Walk through the town of Gouda, which in addition to its tasty name, epitomizes Dutch medieval charm dating back to the 13th century.
