I am travelling with a group of friends to Amsterdam mid-October and following the reviews on Trip Advisor thought that the WW2 Walk would be a fantastic way to learn about the history of the city during that period. Unfortunately Peter is unavailable, however, rather than receive a polite response to advise he was unable to help, I have received... More

I was interested in learning about life in Amsterdam during WW 2 as my mother was a teenager in Amsterdam during the occupation. She has told me so little about her life during that period and I wanted to understand the trauma she must have experienced. Ben was a brilliant and knowledgeable tour guide. It was quite confronting to actually... More

Recently participated in WWII walking tour of Amsterdam with Ben. He was prompt, knowledgeable and courteous as he took us back in time to German occupation. Tour covers a number of sites with a great coffee/ hot chocolate stop. I highly recommend company and Ben for your historical touring of a beautiful city.

I did this tour with my sister and father as a 'present' for my father, who is very interested in the Second World War. We are dutch and I've lived in Amsterdam for all my life. It was very impressive to hear all the stories what happened in the war and where it happened. Especially the combination of seeing the... More

I really enjoyed the tour we had with Peter. He was so friendly and engaging. We were lucky to have a very open group who asked Peter a lot of questions and he was able to answer all of them. Not necessarily all about World War II either. He was able to tell us more about living in Amsterdam and... More

We recently did walking tour with Ben. He was so knowledgeable and personable. We really enjoyed this tour even in the drizzling rain! Would definitely do this again and highly recommend to everyone visiting Amsterdam to book this tour. It was like having an old friend take you around to see the sights that we would have missed had we... More

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
