What you'll do

Holland Tasting Tours are walking food tours. Our group will gather at a specific meeting location and walk just over a mile total. Along the way, we will talk about the local culture, art and architecture. I will share some fun stories of Holland's past. We will stop at seven different tasting stations and guests will experience some of the unique flavors of Holland. These tastes generally constitute a meal for most people. So, it's an activity and a meal in one! Even local residents who have toured with me have been surprised at the insights I've shared and the tasty goodies they've enjoyed.
It's pedestrian gourmandizing at its best!

I am a first generation American of Dutch descent. The culture of the Netherlands was part of my growing up experience. I have lived in Holland, Michigan for 35 years and LOVE this vibrant town and its Dutch heritage. I have been actively studying its history for just over a year, but I've been absorbing its culture my whole adult life. Also, I strongly believe that experiencing the food of a locale is essential to gaining an understanding of it. Come along with me and taste the flavors that are unique to my town. Holland, Michigan is a one-in-a-million place and I can't wait to introduce you to it!

The food tasting tour is more than just food! Linda is a wonderful story teller and we began seeing Holland from new eyes. The walk was invigorating and had stops along the way for rest, food tasting and more stories. Highly recommended!!!

A great way to start my trip to Holland. We learned all about the history and quirks of the town and enjoyed some delicious food. Throughout the rest of our week-long trip, we felt a unique connection to the town that wouldnt have been there without this tour. Thanks a bunch, Linda.

This was a great experience Linda was extremely excited and knowledgeable about Holland Michigan. We learned so much about an area we never been too. We want to come back for Tulip Time.

I've never been on a walking tasting tour before but I hope this one isn't my last! Linda is absolutely fantastic and does a wonderful job with this tour. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in downtown Holland and this tour was well worth it!

Amazing experience! Linda is a very knowledgeable and cheerful host and we enjoyed every minute of the tour. All the foods we tried and the restaurants we went to have interesting history along with her personal experiences with them. Great variety of food selection. She cares about different people’s taste and accommodates different preferences. Each stop of the tour is well connected. We appreciate all of Linda’s efforts in planning the trip, teaching us Holland’s history and most importantly her deep passion for this town. We highly recommend this tour to anyone new/old to Holland since there is a lot of new things to learn. The price is definitely worth it and this experience is a highlight of our Michigan trip!
