This tour wrapped up the whole visit to Amsterdam for me after visiting the Anne Frank House. The personal stories of World War II and the Holocaust are always more interesting to me than the war itself. Peter made it all come alive. I was especially intrigued with the sculpture by the unknown sculptor, a person Peter actually knew. There... More

My son and I did this walk and Peter did an awesome job. He was very knowledgable and answered all of my sons questions. I would recommend this walk to anyone! It was easy and done at a nice pace. There was a break half way through which was also veery nice. A must do in Amsterdam!!!!

My wife and I were joined by another couple from England on a morning walk with Ben. We left from the Anne Frank House and walked across time and town learning about the history of Amsterdam during World War II. Ben is a retired university professor and like many teachers, the fact that three hours had elapsed did not affect... More

Peter took my wife, 2 others and me on his WW II walking tour, which focused on the treatment of Jews in Amsterdam. We started at the Anne Frank House and ended near the Portuguese Synagogue. There were some unique anecdotes his mother told him which he repeated for us, and a number of historic photos which helped illustrate his... More

Peter our guide was really informative, full of local and historical information. His tours only consist of a small number of people, ours was 6 in total. We met a charming couple from the USA, a lovely lady from Canada and then there was myself, my Husband and Son from the UK. We all shared stories from our past and... More

We learned a lot about Amsterdam's experiences in WWII and the Nazis' persecution of the Dutch Jews. Peter tied the history together with his and his family's personal experiences in a most interesting way. About halfway through the tour Peter had all of us (only six plus Peter) sit together in a little cafe and have a drink and some... More

Our group of four, my mother (65), daughter (17), husband (53), and myself (44) really enjoyed this walking tour. Even with such a wide range of ages each of us enjoyed the tour. Peter was informative and kept the tour well-paced. Even the stop for the hot chocolate and restroom break was well placed at the appropriate place during the... More

We took this tour as a last minute addition to our stay in Amsterdam, and are so glad we did. Peter our guide was knowledgable, genuine and passionate about not just the WW II, but the history of the city in general. He made a point of getting to know each member of our group (there were only 4 of... More

Attended the walking tour, our guide was Ben. The size of the group was 7 people which was perfect! Tour was extremely informative and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Tour does not end where it begins, however did not struggle to find our way back.

Ben de Jong was our guide. He was fantastic! One of the best things we did in Amsterdam. Ben kept the tour informative, entertaining, and fascinating -- such a sad part of history. Our family of six consisted of three boys ages 17, 19, and 20. Ben kept the boys, as well as the adults, engaged for 3 hours! Ben's... More
