So much fun! The cheese was very good and we learned a lot about the company. They do serve sample cheese downstairs in their company store so if you are interested in the cheese making process and company history very worth! But if you just want to eat cheese and nothing else then you probably don’t need this tour

Great tour! We took the tour with our two kids (9 & 12). We had Laura as our tour guide and she did a wonderful job guiding us around the city and giving us very interesting stories and info along the way. Learned a lot. Ended at the Dutch Pancake Masters and the food was delicious!

My family enjoyed cruising around and eating pizza! The pizza was good and the views were great!

Food was tasty, boat pilot and staff polite and friendly, would definitely recommend this tour

Great good and beautiful location. My husband and I enjoyed eating here.
