Gouda and Alkmaar are two beautiful and exciting cities to visit. And this is the prime reason: cheese! With our excursions, you can visit both of these two towns. If you go for a bus tour on Thursday, you're going to visit the city of Gouda. If you book your tickets for a Friday, we're taking you to atmospheric Alkmaar.
With both excursions you visit the cheese market, find out how different cheeses are made and traded and you'll even go a short walking tour with a friendly and well-informed guide. This way you're guaranteed to learn everything there is to know about cheese before heading out to discover the city on your own.
Both cities are drenched in history, so feast your eyes on the small squares, cute streets and of course the lively markets. We pick you up at the souvenir shop in the A'DAM tower at Overhoeksplein 5. You easily get here from the Central Station by taking the ferry to Buiksloterweg (this takes about five minutes). From here, it takes 75 minutes to travel to our destinations.
After getting back from our trip, you'll be dropped off at the A'DAM tower again. Did you know you that it's very easy to explore the rest of Amsterdam with our Hop on – Hop off boat that also stops at the A'DAM tower?
With your ticket you get a free 100 Highlights cruise in Amsterdam. You can take this 1 hour canal cruise on a day and time of your choice.
