If you are only going to do one tour in Amsterdam, choose this one with Naomi Koopmans as your tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable. She helped bring history alive, and never once showed any impatience at our hundreds of questions. Additionally, she is a lovely person.

Naomi Koopmans guided my wife and me today through the Portuguese Synagogue, the Jewish Museum and memorial. We can enthusiastically recommend this tour for a historical review of the arrival and growth of the Jewish community in Amsterdam though the modern era. The latter part of the tour covers the WW II events and deadly impact on the Jews in... More

My husband, 2 daughters and I took Naomi Koopmans' Jewish Amsterdam walking tour last week. Naomi's knowledge is impressive and she is warm and open to all questions about the Jewish community in Amsterdam. We learned something at each of our stops - the Portugese synagogue, the museum and memorial site. Our family often tries to do walking tours on... More

Naomi Koopmans gave us a great tour of Portugese synagogue, Jewish museum and memorial site. Naomi is very personable and has extensive knowledge of the Jewish history and present day community in Amsterdam. We learned a lot. We had 3 hours but could have had another hour to spend longer at the museum. I would highly recommend Naomi.

Naomi took us to the Portuguese Synagogue, the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust memorial at the Schouwburg. She has a deep knowledge of her subject and supplied many fascinating details which we would have missed had we walked round on our own: I was particularly interested about the role Napoleon played in the history of the Dutch Jews and in...

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
