My wife and I visited with Naomi on a private tour for 3 hours and this was a stellar experience. As a fellow history scholar I came to this tour with advanced knowledge and was blown away by Naomi's ability to share the complex situations Dutch Jews faced, and how they related also to the Portuguese communities. She was able... More

Despite the cold, dreary weather Naomi Koopmans warmed us up through her engaging and knowledgeable description of Jewish life in Amsterdam throughout history. Her expertise in Judaism was a most welcome treat. We learned more about Dutch Jewish life (pre, during, and post WWII) which enriched our visit to the Netherlands. The tour extensively covered the Portuguese Synagogue, Jewish Museum,... More

I highly recommend this tour with Naomi Koopmans. She has an impressive knowledge of the subject matter. She spends plenty of time in each of the three sites on the tour, which include the Portugeuse synagogue, The Jewish museum and Jewish Holocaust museum/memorial. All are within an easy walk. Additionally, Naomi covered some additional features, Including the Jewish "Tripping Stones".... More

I highly recommend the tour of the Jewish sites given by Naomi. She gave us great insight into The life of the Jews at the time of the occupation and lots of information on the 3 sights she takes you too. I had been to two of the sights previously and had quite a different experience going with her and... 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
