The experience was quite eye-opening. Flora was an excellent and pleasant guide. The platter at the end of the tour was simply superb and we each now have a favourite cheese. I recommend this tour to couples and adult families.

What a wonderful stop on a quick visit in the area. Enjoyed one of the best cheese platters and the coffee was amazing better than most cafes. The ladies were very helpful and friendly. And the cheese rolls were super yummy.

Very friendly welcome from the young woman in the shop, who was very knowledgeable as well. We had a wine and the tasting platter which featured 6 cheeses from the Whitestone range and some crackers. Lovely cheeses.

You get to see the cheese production process and taste 7 different cheeses afterwards. Most things are handmade here, very special.

Great cheeses from effectively an outlet shop. Helpful staff and the cheeses were great, as always. A number of different cheeses at reasonable prices. Good selection to try.
