Jennifer is awesome! She is very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history, and her great personality adds an additional flavor. She knows many of the locals and gets special treatment for her tours based on her local relationships. Highly recommend spending the morning with her.

We had a fabulous tour with Jen. The relationship Jen has built with the cheese runners made for a fantastic morning as their interaction made it a fun atmosphere. Jen gave us lots of history and some great stories 😊 As we were in Alkmaar area for a few days, Jen also recommend the medi evil festival. We came back the next day and had an amazing experience! Thanks Jen for a memorable tour! Highly recommended!
Great day out

What a nice visit! Jennifer was wonderful and explained everything perfectly. She only uses small groups, so, Visite is almost private. We were able to see the Alkmaar Cheese Market really up-close. Also, great walking visit in Alkmaar. This visit was well over my expectations.
