Cheese tasting in a cosy cowshed and exploring an unspoiled lake at a short distance from the metropolis.

We gather in a cafe that can best be described as an Amsterdam living room. The place where you feel at home no matter what time of the day.The place to enjoy our early morning coffee, home made cakes and meet our new friends for the day.

We board our private minibus to travel along the shores of the winding river Amstel. You will enjoy the splendid vistas of the Dutch countryside. Swaying reeds, cows in green meadows and historic villages. You will visit a family run farmstead. This experience will satisfy your curiosity and your taste buds.The farmer will explain about the tradition of artisan cheese making all the way from milk to finished product. You may even have the pleasure to try plain cheese or cheese flavoured with herbs such as cumin, pepper or fenugreek. The tasting takes place in a cosy cowshed. This farm shop is the best place to buy your souvenirs for people back home.

In the afternoon you will visit the unspoiled lake at a short distance from Amsterdam, which offers a wonderful setting for a lazy boat trip. You and your companions will be the captain and of your own easy to handle electric boat. A map will reveal the small beaches and islands where you can moor, swim and work on your tan!  We will spoil you with a delicious picnic from a basket. This tour offers plenty of photo opportunities, so bring your camera.

Indulge in an unforgettable tour.

We hebben enorm genoten van de try-out tour. Eerst gingen we naar de kaasboerderij, waar we van de boer een enthousiaste rondleiding kregen en heerlijk kaas hebben geproefd tussen de koeien in een ouderwets gezellige stal. Aansluitend gingen we met ons groepje in een sloep varen op de Vinkeveense plassen. Helaas was het weer niet fantastisch, maar dat mocht de pret niet drukken. We hebben veel lol gehad tijdens de picknick op een eilandje. Alles was top geregeld! Dank, we komen snel weer. Marieke uit Naarden.
