If you have an interest in history, especially WWII and the Holocaust in Amsterdam, this is the tour for you. First off; their communication via e-mail before arrival is superb. The articles sent before and after the tour were above and beyond expected and appreciated. Our group was to be one of 6 upon arrival in AMS on 8/11, but... More

Lyndal and I wish to sincerely thank Peter for an extraordinary walking tour which we did with him in May 2013. We would recommend Peter to all that wish to do a WW11 informative walking tour. Thank you Peter.

It doesn't get better than this - our Guide, Ben was perfect: engaging, friendly, knowledgable and very helpful. His use of historical photos combined with his many years of research and personal stories during the tour were well worth the fee. If you are interested in World War II and/or the Holocaust in Amsterdam, this tour is for YOU... Five... More

My friend and I went on the walking tour with Peter last week and it was incredible. A lot of the tour was based off of research Peter had done while at university. This was great as he was able to not only provide a unique experience but also able to answer all of our questions. Would highly recommend, especially... More

Our family really enjoyed the walking history tour with Peter and we saw many things that most tourists would miss or not understand. Peter's stories of Amsterdam in the war years made the history and sights come alive and it was moving to hear so many personal stories. The pictures of then and now made us all relate to the...

We booked the tour online before our visit to Amsterdam. We were sent very clear details about where to meet, some extra information and a very useful comment about being aware that the weather can be chilly as the tour involves some standing to look at sites. Ben was very friendly and really informative about the occupation of Amsterdam, he... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the walk with Ben on Wednesday 13th August. The group was small - there were only 8 of us - which made it easier to stay together in the busy parts of the city and to hear what he was saying. We enjoyed looking at the photographs of Amsterdam in the 1940's and comparing... More

My family and 3 other families traveled to Amsterdam together recently. We had a group of 16 people aged 15 to 60 and decided to take the WWII Walking tour. Peter and Ben divided our group into two so the groups were more intimate. Both Peter and Ben have studied history and had taken time to research Amsterdam's role in... More

Peter gave the WW2 walking tour to just my friend and I. It was a very well-planned and interesting tour. I really got the sense that he wanted us to learn as much as possible about the rich history that has unfolded in this city. Can't recommend the walk enough! I especially enjoyed the 1940s photographs, which he showed us... More

This wasn't some boring, droning on history tour. Ben de Jong really made it come to life as we went along, creating a lively, interactive tour, with many of us chiming in. Here are 5 features that made this a great tour: 1. Ben de Jong was a great guide, he met us on time, was amazingly versatile, creating a... More
