This walking tour is a great way to see Amsterdam and learn about the Shoah in the Nederlands and the occupation 1940-1945. Peter is a marvellous tour guide and the 3hrs absolutely flies by. The tour is packed with interesting facts and sights and history is really brought to life. In particular, the treatment of Amsterdam’s Jewish community is poignantly... More

Me and my boyfriend booked the walking tour with Peter. We found him to be extremely passionate about history and was able to answer any question we asked. We could tell that he does the tours out of love for the subject and he loves to meet new people. It was great t learn about the role that Holland played... More

My friend and I did this tour on February 14, 2015 and we were extremely pleased! It definitely made our trip! Peter was an amazing and passionate guide and had so much information to provide. It was about 3 hours and we had a coffee break half way through. It gave us a different perspective of the city and he... More

Myself and my partner took this tour with Peter on the 30th December 2014. He emailed us prior to our holiday with journal articles to read to give us some background information which was very helpful! We like to do a walking tour in most city's we visit and this so far was the best! It lasts about 3 1/2... More

Wife and myself did this tour. Peter was very passionate about the history of his city. The tour was small 6 people in total. So we had all the time in the world to ask all sorts of questions on the history of this beautiful city. Would be happy to recommend this tour to family and friends. Tour was around... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was very easy to organise just a couple of e-mails. Peter was our tour guide and he enjoys his work. Peters photos and stories brought the war alive. There were 6 people on our tour so we all got to ask questions. The tour lasted about three hours and was one... More

Absolutely loved our walking tour with Peter. Took around 2 1/2 hours stopping every couple of minutes to either tell us what happened in that particular place or showing us pictures of what was once there. Peter was extremely knowledgable and it was a good way to find out more about the city that you would never know before the... More

I would certainly recommend this walk not just to "history buffs" but to anyone who has an interest in learning about life in Amsterdam under the Occupation and the fate of so many of its citizens. Ben was our excellent, very knowledgeable tour guide and illustrated the walk, which took about 3 hours or so, with a number of contemporary... More

I went with my girlfriend who has very little interest in history but she enjoyed it almost as much as I did. Peter was very informative and knowledgeable and incorporated anecdotes of his parents giving the tour a more personal aspect of life under nazi occupation. I particularly loved all the forgotten monuments to the resistance and those whom helped... More
