Peter is a great guide and provided us with so much insight into the impact of WWII on Amsterdam. Walking through the old city with him pointing out and explaining significant sites was pretty overpowering. We were a party of 5 total - 2 Canadians and 3 Swedes, which led to a lively chat during our coffee break in a... More

My family and I had the pleasure of taking this tour with Ben. We found him to be highly knowledgeable and engaging...our only wish is that the tour could be longer because we enjoyed it so much! As we walked, Ben showed us old pictures of various points of the city so that we could get a glimpse of life... More

Peter was by far the best. His knowledge is overwhelming. He truly helped me to understand more about the Resistance movement and what my parents went through during the war. My grown daughters and I took Peter's tour in April...so this review is long overdue but in the meantime I have referred more friends and family to take this walking... More

Peter gave a very informative historical tour of Amsterdam, providing knowledgeable and insightful commentary throughout. We visited many lesser known areas, which, without Peter's guidance, we would have passed by without even knowing the significance of what was there. Peter prepared us beforehand by sending links to historical documents and videos. During the tour he showed us photos and other... More

A highly recommended tour and a very reasonably priced one given the length and the effort that goes into it. Peter was very friendly and flexible, and quick to answer emails.

Ben was great with our small group. We spent about 3.5 hours and his knowledge is wonderful. Very informative and provides great perspective. Really pleasant to be with and happy to spend the time to answer all of our questions. Even in the cold and rain. I visited the Anne Frank House after my tour with Ben and made the... More

Peter not only gives you an excellent tour of WWII Amsterdam but he also sends you lots of good reference links to prepare you for the tour. We took the tour early in our visit and it also served as a general orientation to the city. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to know more about WWII... More
