A relaxing walk from Alkmaar station to the city center. Great information about architecture and some history. Good explanation about the cheese market. I can recommend.

I had little known of Alkmaar, what I only know is cheese market. But the guide is very gentle and knowledgeable and enthusiastic to let us show the gem of Alkmaar. We had a fruitful time with her. As a matter of fact, the cheese market itself hires MC who speaks Dutch, Germany and English so English speakers can get information about cheese market. But without GetYourGuide guide, I must have missed lots of things to see, for example other market, mother is 1001 children, Hofje, and the victory. Thank you for making my day much more worthy!!
