Peter was a great tour guide and was really open to questions, which was phenomenal. My wife and I really enjoyed the insight, the pictures Peter shared, as well as the stories of how WWII affected his family. I highly recommend this tour for someone interested in history and how Nazi occupation affected the Netherlands!

My family and I took this tour with Emilie, and are thrilled we did. We had the kids in tow (aged 11 and 10) and Emilie was great with them, patient and had them interested even! Highly recommend this tour.

As my husband is a history buff and since we had previously visited Anne Frank House we decided to sign up for this tour. We are very glad we did. Ben was a very knowledgeable and compassionate guide. We were a small group so were able to cover a lot of territory in our three hour walk. Ben's thoughtful presentation... More

Attended the tour with a teenager(15yrs old) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was small group of people(7 people) and we really liked it. Peter showed us the various spots which relates to WWII and explained about the history accompanied with old photos. My teenager genuinely said she learned some history of Amsterdam from the war time. It was interesting... More

We were lucky to take part in the WWII Walking Tour with Ben de Jong on a rainy and cold June day. I did not mind the rain and cold too much because it made it feel that much more appropriate in experiencing the tour and all that took place during that terrible time. Ben is a GREAT guide and...

I can not express enough how grateful I am to have been able to participate in a World War II Walking Tour with Ben De Jong. Ben is a retired professor at the University of Amsterdam. He has so much knowledge to impart and boy did we get a history lesson. During our tour, it rained on and off. We... More

We walked with Emilie who was an excellent guide. We learned so much during the walk and saw memorials and places we wouldn't have seen on our own. As well as the WW2 content you also have time to look at some of the splendid houses in the central area. This really is a "must do" when in Amsterdam. As... More

We took Ben's tour this week with 4 other Americans who had signed up. We walked for 3 hours throughout the city, wandering around the Jewish district and hearing from Ben how the once-thriving Jewish community was destroyed during WWII. Ben is easy to be with, smart and kind and deeply committed to sharing the history of his beloved city,... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
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. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
