Private Cheese Walks

My Private "VIP" Cheese Shopping Walk and tasting takes about 4 hours. I take your private group for a walk around the City, point out the many cheese shops that tourists normally buy from, but also the very best cheese shops where we will buy 4 or 5 Serious Cheeses! During the walk we'll have a rest stop at a traditional Dutch café for a drink.


We then head to a local Craft Beer Brewery or Dutch Wine Shop to enjoy the cheeses with a Cheese talk with Craft Beer, Dutch Wine or Alcohol Free drinks (wine, beer, soft drinks etc). You'll learn why the cheeses all look, taste and smell different, how to spot the best ones at the shop, how to travel with, store and even how best to cut the different cheeses!

What guests think....

Just a few of the reviews I've had from very happy customers!


Mattis, Amsterdam

This is probably one of the top experiences you can have in Amsterdam, regardless if you are visiting or living here. Michael took us to one of the best cheese markets in Amsterdam and educated us on all the different varieties of cheese and how to build the perfect cheese board. He’s an amazing storyteller and has a way of gripping your interest for hours through his extensive knowledge and anecdotes from his career as a professional cheese monger. After the cheese market he took us to a wine bar in the basement of a bakery, he taught us how to even cut the different cheeses and the best way to serve it! The cheese was paired with some very nice Dutch wines, which was extremely interesting, as I had no idea the Dutch even made wines. By the end of the tour, everyone was having a blast and we decided to continue the experience at the oldest bar in Amsterdam with some beers and fun chats.


Kris, USA

This was a tremendous cheese and wine tasting experience! I worked for a winery for five years and also in the cheese industry (Wisconsin, USA) and this was an outstanding presentation. Michael knows his cheeses and cheesemaking. It is worth it if you want more than the mass market cheese experience you can find all over the place. It was entertaining, educational, and overall one of the best tours I went on in my 8-day stay in Amsterdam.


Jennifer, USA

Michael is so fun and full of cheese knowledge. I highly recommend his tours. His passion really shines through and you can tell he loves interacting with people to share his passion.


Pat, Basel

Very knowledgeable. It would seem whichever country he is currently based in, what he doesn’t know about cheese is not really worth knowing.


Bethany, USA

If you want to find a tour that is different and memorable, book the Cheese and Beer Tour! I wanted something that appealed to both my daughter (23) and I. Although, I knew I loved cheese and my daughter loves breweries, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was exceptional! Micheal explained how to choose cheese and beer and how to pair it. The cheese shop he took us to was a shop locals would use and was amazing! The brewery was one my daughter loved. Together it was the perfect pairing! At the end of the tour, he made sure we made back to the Central Station so we could easily find our way back to the hotel! As side note, I am now huge cheese snob, and having been using my new knowledge to buy great cheese back in the states (well not quite as good as the ones we had in Amsterdam!) but I am trying!


Adrian, Zürich

We brought Mike in for an employee cheese and wine evening in Zurich. Knowledgeable and down to earth, his passion for cheese always comes across well to any audience and our staff really enjoyed themselves.


Jess, USA

We did a private wine and cheese experience with Michael which was so much fun even in the pouring rain. We got to go to an authentic cheese shop and learn all about making the perfect cheese board. Then we walked to this super cool wine shop that was in the basement of a bakery to try our cheese with some Dutch wine. The whole afternoon was so amazing and far exceeded our expectations. If you want a truly different experience, I strongly recommend booking one of his tours.


Ward, Netherlands

We had a cheese workshop from Michael with our family. It was great! Very informative, nice stories and of course a tasting of the best cheeses. I learned to spot good quality cheeses in shops, and which traits I like in cheese. Overall a great experience, would highly recommend!
