My girlfriend booked the cheese and wine tasting as a bit of a last minute thing to do. We've never done wine or cheese tasting before, but this was great. Informative, fun and unpretentious. Highly recommend.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether

There doesn't seem to be an option for such a discount before you enter your credit card details. So, I would say not.
