And the story is indeed intersting, from the jewish arrival after the tribulations in spain and... More

She brought the history of the Jewish quarter and its present life alive. She was able to discuss the past and present with ease. I leaned a lot , and that is always important to me.... More

We were captivated by Naomi's knowledge of Jewish History. We wouldn't be able to learn so much on our own. We are very grateful to Naomi for such an informative and interesting tour. 6

Naomi is probably one of the best guides I have ever had the pleasure of undertaking a tour with. Knowledgeable, intelligent, engaging, articulate, personable and interested in all aspects of guiding, it was one of the most pleasant and informative few hours I have spent in recent times. Naomi was incredibly responsive to any and all questions posed to her... More

Naomi is by far the best, well-educated guide that I've experienced in Europe. She possess a wealth of information about the plight of the Jewish people's journey throughout the ages. Besides her knowledge, she's enthusiastic and always curious to answer any and all questions posed to her. My friend and I "ran into her" after our tour at an art... More

Naomi Koopmans gave me and my family an excellent tour. It is clear she has done great amounts of research and is very knowledgeable. It was extremely educational and interesting, and is highly recommended to anyone wanting to learn more about the history of Jews in Amsterdam.

Naomi Koopman's tour was brilliant! She is so knowledgeable and made the whole tour so interesting. She went into exactly the right amount of depth with fascinating information but not blinding us with too many details. She is a first class guide and I would 100% recommend her to anyone wishing to take a tour of Jewish Amsterdam.

Naomi Koopmans' tour of Jewish Amsterdam is a tour not to be missed. Not only do you tour the Portuguese Synagogue and the Jewish Historic Museum but you also are given Naomi's engaging analysis and anecdotes of the history of the Jews in Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Without Naomi's brilliant historical context the buildings and objects may would fade from... More

Naomi was so well informed as she took us on a tour of the Portuguese Synagogue, The Jewish Museum, and the Holocaust Museum. We had a great history lesson and she made it all sound so interesting. Our group had only 5 people so we could all ask questions as we went along and Naomi was always happy to stop... More
