While on a family vacation in April in Amsterdam, we took advantage of the World War II walking tour. The tour lasted about two hours and was so worth doing! We learned a great deal about the history of Amsterdam during WWII. Peter was an excellent guide and very engaging. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

My sister and I found the WW2 walking tour with Ben to be one of the highlights of our time in Amsterdam. The tour was informative and educational - the resource material used by Ben was helpful in taking us back to a terrible time in Dutch history and helping us to understand the dynamics of the Occupation. We appreciated... More

My daughter, myself and 2 teenage grandsons recently walked with Peter. We all were delighted by his friendliness and passion for his subject. We came away with a better understanding of Amsterdam during the war and the boys were anxious to start learning more about World War II because of our walk.

In late May, my daughter and her 13-yr-old daughter and I, had the joy of touring the heart of Amsterdam with Peter. His knowledge and passion for his subject were contagious. His background as a journalist, no doubt, contributed to his attention to detail and gave perspective in connection WW II Amsterdam to today. The insights he shared and the... More

This walking tour was fantastic! If you are a history buff, this is the tour for you. I was part of a group of five and the tour was led by Peter. The walking tour progresses at a leisurely pace with frequent stops. There is a stop for coffee about halfway through the tour. I was very pleased with this... More

Amazing and concise history of Amsterdam. Ben is most knowledgeable and after the tour has concluded, he sends a package of reading and other materials. This is a wonderful way to get a taste of Amsterdam from one who lives there. Price is quite reasonable. A must tour even if you don't like tours!
