Very good, knowledgeable guide (Ben). The tour is a sobering one but also an illuminating one, and enjoyable if - like me - you enjoy more detail rather than less. Highly recommended.

We took the WWII walking tour today with Ben. He and the tour were fantastic. You will see much of the center city but from a historical and deeply touching perspective. For those who wonder, the tour is not “too depressing.” Very highly recommended!

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
