This really is a must-do tour. In fact, all 4 of us are still talking about it, 6 weeks on! It was the highlight of our 4-day trip. Peter is very passionate and extremely knowledgeable about his country and everything war-related! I was fairly confidant that the 2 guys in our party would find it fascinating (based on previous TP... More

Wherever we travel I try to book a tour with someone with local knowledge and I was lucky to get Peter at short notice on New Years Eve. From the first contact I knew our party of four would not be disappointed as his email was personal and contained not only historical references, but tips about places to visit, good... More

Our family of four - 2 adults, 2 teens - toured with Ben on December 29th and loved it despite the cold weather. Ben is extremely knowledgeable and gave us a true understanding of the war's impact on Amsterdam. Aided by Ben's vintage photographs, we stood near the actual sites of different events, like the shooting of civilians in Dam... More

We took a tour with Ben at the end of October as we were on a trip to celebrate my Daughters 18th birthday and she loves history. Particularly world war 2 and the holocaust. This tour was perfect, even for those of us that we're not history buffs! The way that the tour was conducted and the comparisons between then... More

Ben met us on a Cold and wet Monday Afternoon and we had the best walking tour we've experienced for several years. Ben was very knowledgeable on the effects of WWII on Amsterdam and the Jewish exportation to concentration camps from the city. Definitely recommend this walk, and don't miss the café with the great hot chocolate.

We took Peter's walking tour on December 27, 2014 and thought is was one of the most interesting walking tours we have ever experienced in Europe. We try to do one in every city we visit. Since we are both history buffs, what Peter had to offer was "right up our alley". He really made the history come alive and... More

I am not exactly a history buff but I greatly appreciate what Peter offers. He offers you a chance to be a real tourist and to see behind the scenes of a bustling lively city. A chance to understand pieces of our history that should never be forgotten. It would be so easy to walk around Amsterdam and only see... More

I did the walking tour with Ben on 14 December 2014. Ben is extremely knowledgeable and interesting. He has photographs of streets, buildings, etc. with him so you can see what the city looked like during the war. Unlike other tours, they send you a lot of great info before the tour - exactly where the starting point is, rough... More

We were lucky enough to have Peter all to ourselves for our WW2 Walking Tour and although the weather was poor, we had a great learning experience. All 3 of us had a really fulfilling afternoon spent in the company of the very engaging Peter. The tour brought home the reality of living in an occupied country and it was... More
