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!

Where you'll be

We'll stroll the length of downtown Holland and see all of its unique features. We will see historic buildings including a beautifully restored fire station from 1883 and Holland's oldest building and the founder's church. Along the way, we will stop at seven different tasting stations (mostly restaurants) and get a sample of their delicious offerings.

Our first food tour, didn't know what to expect, but this was totally worth it. The food selected was awesome and the historical facts about the builds and the founders was the cherry on the cake. Thank you Linda!!

We’ve never been on a walking food tour before, didn’t know what to expect. It was so much fun to taste lots of the foods Holland has to offer. But most entertaining was how passionate Linda was about her scenic little town. It was amazing to learn about the history of Holland with such an enthusiastic tour guide. Thank you Linda!
