Overview

Explore the Netherlands’ ‘City of Cheese’ with a private guide, on a 2-hour walking tour of Alkmaar for your group of one to 15 people. Take in the charming historic center on foot, with the opportunity to customize the route to your interests. This tour includes bonus tickets to the Dutch Cheese Museum, which you can visit on your own after the tour concludes, and both morning and afternoon departures are available.
  • 2-hour private Alkmaar tour
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • See historic highlights in the old town
  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
  • Get inside tips from a local
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Includes admission to the Dutch Cheese Museum
Meet a guide at your hotel or the Alkmaar train station for 10am or 2pm departure, then set a relaxing pace as you walk through the historic center. Walking with just your group and a private guide, you have the chance to tailor the tour to the sites you want to see most.

Learn a bit about local history as you walk down the colorful shopping street in the heart of town, and step inside the St. Lawrence Church to see a pair of beautiful pipe organs (summer months only). Hear about the Dutch golden age when you visit the public weighing house, and stop by the city hall that was built during the Dutch War of Independence—with a bullet hole from 1573 preserved in the façade.

The tour concludes at the Dutch Cheese Museum, and includes entrance fees: continue into the museum on your own to explore cheese history and technology.
