    I'm still thinking about how good this tour was a year later
    I am not usually one for guided tours, but my friends surprised me with this one, because they knew it appealed to my specific interests (Amsterdam and economics). And that's what made this tour so cool was how specific it got. Our guide, Edgar, was incredibly knowledgeable on the financial history of this city that's so important to the beginnings of capitalism. No matter how you feel about the c-word, capitalism shapes our world, and this tour gives you a detailed understanding of how Amsterdam is central to it. Edgar's knowledge on Rembrandt's crankiness with his clients, the beginnings of the Dutch stock exchange, the Dutch East India Company, the tulip mania, and Walraven van Hall, the banker who robbed a bank to stop the Nazis, made this tour a great afternoon. Edgar was also very friendly as he took us through the city. It's taken me a while to write this review (a whole year), but I was recently reminded how much tour companies depend on good reviews for people to find their good work. Let this late review come to some good use: This tour is so good, I'm still thinking about it a year later. Go ahead and take it.

    Great tour of the Rijksmuseum with passion and humour
    Edgar gave us a tour of the Rijksmuseum as part of our business trip to Amsterdam. He shares his knowledge with great passion, and he is very knowledgeable about both art and Amsterdam itself. He also gives many humorous insights which I appreciated.

    Excellent world war 2 tour in Amsterdam
    Edgar was a very good guide. He was very knowledgeable, a friendly guy and went at a good speed. I am 80 years old. He took the time to explain and to move at a pace that suited my needs. Definitely recommend him to other travelers!

    Great tour
    Edgar was an excellent tour guide. He provided us with 2.5 hours of Jewish and Amsterdams history. It was apparent he loves what he does and is very informed. We enjoyed our entire time with him. We did the Anne Frank and Jewish History of Amsterdam Private Tour.

    Amazing Amsterdam Tour
    Edgar Foley was an amazing guide for the Jewish History of Amsterdam and Anne Frank House Tour. As an art history expert, he provided great insight into the area, its history, and the changing architecture over time.

    Great experience with a group!
    This is the second time we did the financial history in Amsterdam as an organization, the local guides are knowledgeable about Amsterdam financial history. The highlight for me was seeing the worlds first stock exchange and learning about VOC- The Dutch East Indian Company!

    Surprised and Delighted
    What a wonderful tour - we thoroughly recommend it. Tijs was knowledgeable, full of interesting stories and extremely courteous and polite. A fascinating tour and to be able to see inside Huis Bartolotti was the icing on the cake! Thank you Tijs.

    Rijksmuseum private tour - excellent!
    Tijs was an excellent tour guide - funny, engaging and incredibly knowledgeable. The private tour was a fantastic experience and made the museum so much more accessible to someone who isn’t an art expert. Would 100% recommend!

    A brilliant tour with a great guide
    Edgar took my colleagues + I on a tour of multiple areas of Amsterdam and shared so much history + culture with us when we walked. I remembered so much of it because it was so well-paced and shared that I've shared a lot of it with friends who have visited since! Thanks Edgar and thanks to Historical Amsterdam Tours!

    Informative
    A very relaxed and experienced guide. Willing to talk and answer questions. The best investment knowledge is to buy high and sell low

    Historical Tours are not only for visitors.
    We’ve lived in Amsterdam for 10 years and finally took the time to learn more about the fascinating history. The financial tour did not disappoint - learning about both the financial innovations of the Dutch, but also the uncomfortable truths in its history. Thank you, Thijs, for the engaging tour!

    WALKING IN AMSTERDAM WITH A BIG FRIEND :)
    Tijs is one of the people that makes us wish the day to have more than 24 hours! :) Not only a guide who makes the fascinating Amsterdam even more fascinating! His vision for the city reveals the past, the present, and create great perspectives for the future. With all the secrets of each street, you learn not only about Nederlands but also its World's Influence. Knowledge, culture, amazing angles for photos and a real lesson of lively history in just one day, I can imagine how wonderful it would be if we had the privilege to spend a week with our new Dutch Friend! Absolutely recommended, I have no doubt he will be an essential part of my tours!

    WW2 Walking Tour of Amsterdam
    This was a fascinating and informative tour. The shocking reality of the Second World War is so close to the surface in Amsterdam; important historical events happened on almost every corner. Tijs was an excellent and knowledgable guide about this difficult subject; he told us stories of bravery and loss, acts of rebellion and resistance, of the Hunger Winter, of families in hiding and people being shot by a sniper just days after Liberation Day. I am familiar with this period of history and this city and yet I still learned many new things, so I can't recommend this tour highly enough.

    Amsterdam during World War II - walking tour
    This walking tour gave an insight about Amsterdam during the dark period of 1940 and 1945. The 2 hour tour started at the Anne Frank House and ended at the Jewish cultural quarter in the Plantage. Tijs spoke about the harrowing times that led up to the second world war, the daily struggels of the jewish citizens of Amsterdam, their persecution and their massacre in various death camps in Poland. We also learnt about how ordinary Amsterdammers tried to resist the nazi occupation of the city and how they tried to save lives. The tour itself leads through the most beautiful parts of Amsterdam and I highly recommend it to everyone who has not much time to spend in Amsterdam. You will not only visit stunning parts of the city but you will also learn more about the important topic of the Holocaust. At times, I felt emotional during this tour but it was one of those tours that I will remember for a long time. I absolutely recommend.

This was an amazing walking tour of Rembrandt’s steps, where he lived, about his work, the good and bad, etc. It was extremely informative and our guide was Tijs who did an outstanding job. He was funny, and professional, and it was obvious he is passionate about history. Definitely worth doing!

We made this tour as we prefered to get a more real-live impression of Rembrandt than just looking at his paintings in the Rijksmuseum. And Tijs fullfilled this expectation absolutely. Even if the city looks pretty different today and not all buildings are existing anymore his storytelling makes the 17th century getting back to life before your eyes. He shares a lot of knowledge and you recognize that he is really into his topic and loves to share that.
So if you want to get to know Amsterdam from a different view, this is your tour.

Excellent bespoke tour of highlights of the Rijksmuseum. Edgar Foley was a great and knowledgable guide! He put the history of Dutch Art in the Golden Age and earlier in context.
