This was an excellent and insightful tour with Peter. He provided a wealth of information to us about Amsterdam before, during and after the war, and also how the Holocaust affected the city. Additionally, he gave us some extra general information about Amsterdam that was great to hear and see. We particularly liked the photos from the war period he had, and the ability to stand on the streets and see what it would have been like during Nazi occupation. I highly recommend this tour, he is very qualified having studied history and having parents who lived through the war here.

Monique took me on a walking tour, it was a fresh cold day, two groups dropped out, so I was gifted a 1-1 tour, I was touched that 360 still did it for 1 person. It was the most unique experience, Monique was a young 40 yr woman, who spoke with a passion and intensity that, as she guided me (a lot of information, given in a easily absorbed way). I don’t really know what I’d expected, well yes, I did. When I signed up,, I obviously didn’t read the details properly of the tour. I saw Anne Franks face and some key words, thought I was seeing the house. I GOT WAY MORE. My heart was opened, touched by Monique’s explanations of the different sites. And, this was done in a way that included me, with questions, asking me “what would you have done/eaten,”. I felt the cold, the hunger, the actual story of what the Dutch experienced as a neutral country, how the Dutch/Jews would have experienced the German takeover. On a person to person level, not as being judgemental, but just eye opening. This tour touched me, it was off season 7 Feb, I now am going to book the Anne Frank house with a new depth of awareness, understanding. It was a humbling experience, as Monique would walk with me, then, out of the blue, stop in a place that didn’t seem out of the ordinary, and share details of people long gone, but never forgotten of what they went through. Monique’s manner of explaining is sincere and captivating. I’m touched and will never walk the streets of Amsterdam again without hearing Monique’s words, we tell this story so that no one will ever have to experience it again. Thank you Monique and 360 tours, I am truly grateful. (If it’s cold, wear warm footwear, although my leather boots were warm for Australia, I could feel the cold, which grounded me to experience a nanosecond of what it would have been like without shoes...or warm clothes...or even food, all things we take for granted.... It was an enlightening tour, poignant and informative, thank you Monique.

How about in the Jewish quarter , the hall of Remembrance . Go inside and talk about the Jewish and Dutch underground . Enter the courtyard where the Jews were rounded up into the Courtyard and taken to the Camps . How about talking about all the Dutch people's who smuggled guns and ration cards in for the starving and hungry people . Don't forget the theatre building where there is thousands of names on the Walls all the Dutch Jews who went to the Camps and died there . And built into the walls the story's of the Natzi atrousitys done on the Dutch people's . And don't forget to tell the Stories on the 1944 -1945 winter of hunger and Starving people's who had to eat Tulip bulbs just to have something in their bellies . And how the Grandparents went without food so their Children would eat . Ok Talk about everything .

This walking tour was an excellent way to learn more about Amsterdam during WWII. The guide shared many facts but also a lot of historical context. We learned a great deal and it was very well planned and presented.
