We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 hour wine and cheese tasting. The woman was very informative and enthusiastic about Reypenaer cheeses. We tasted 6 cheeses and 3 wines. If you bought cheeses after the tasting, you received a 10% discount.

It's a fun thing to do while in Amsterdam. You'll have the opportunity to taste different kind of cheese and to learn some information about them. From my point of view, it's a little bit expensive for what you get.

This was a fun and different one-hour diversion, excellent presentation and explanation by Erik. I'm not a big cheese fan, but tasting them along with learning how they were created was interesting and fun.

There doesn't seem to be an option for such a discount before you enter your credit card details. So, I would say not.
