We had a wonderful experience touring Jewish Amsterdam with Jeanette Loeb. She painted a picture of Jewish life through the centuries and we were brought back in time and could visualize the life of the earliest Jews in Amsterdam. We learned a great deal about what once was a thriving Jewish community up to the present Jewish community. The Portuguese... More

Jeanette is a truly excellent guide. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and gives a lot of interesting additional information. My husband and I took a three hour walking tour which included the Portuguese synagogue and the deportation centre as well as many other points of interest. We learnt so much about Jewish life in Amsterdam from the first Jewish settlers... More

Jeanette was absolutely incredible! She gave my (adult) family a tour through what was once the Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam and is now a bustling neighborhood. Few remnants of Jewish life in Amsterdam remain and Jeanette brought the history to life while showing us around the quarter and the Portuguese Synagogue. She custom tailored the tour to our family made... More

The most important aspect of the tour was not one specific item. Rather, it was Jeanette's outstanding depth of knowledge. Her breadth of knowledge, coupled with her ability to impart her knowledge (to both adults and children), enabled us to understand history in a manner that would have been impossible to do either on our own, or with a guidebook.

When Jeanette found out that a lot of my research deals with the religious history of the Netherlands, she personalized the tour to give us more information. We walked around the Jewish Quarter and visited the Portuguese Synagogue. It was great to be in such a small group and have someone so engaged with the local history. I would highly... More

Jeanette took us on a private tour of the Jewish Quarter and the Portuguese Synagogue. We visited important sites and learned about the history of the Jews in Amsterdam. She really knows her history and told us a lot of interesting stories. Don't miss the Portuguese Synagogue - it is really beautiful and very impressive.
