Ready to reserve this excursion?

Are you ready to get cheesy? On this half-day excursion you’ll not only stroll through the quaint town of Gouda, but also browse its cheese museum and enjoy free time to explore on your own. After meeting your friendly and informative guide you’ll set out on foot across the cobblestone streets of Gouda, a tiny town in Holland dating back to the 13th century. During your journey you’ll glimpse the 15th-century city hall, one of the oldest gothic city halls in the Netherlands. At the nearby Weigh House you’ll wander through De Waag’s Gouda Cheese Museum. Watch as the three-century history of how Gouda became the center of Dutch dairy production is depicted through interactive audiovisual exhibits. You’ll also learn intricate details of the cheese-making process — from cow to finished product sold in local markets and worldwide. Enjoy a brief 30-minute interlude to explore independently, shop for souvenirs, or grab a small bite before venturing back to port.
