The walk around Edam was fantastic. Don't go to the cheese factory, the person who explained the making of cheese was rude and impatient. We were only at the factory for 10 minutes, but they wanted us to stay forever in their gift shop.
I would have expected an actual Cheese Factory tour in Edam, but you basically walk past the houses, hear a little about the culture and pass a cheese store. Had it been a rainy day this would have been a chore.
