Do not hesitate to book a trip with Ms. Loeb. Her knowledge together with her personal life experiences make this an especially interesting, enjoyable and informative tour. Jeanette was a wonderful and gracious tour host. M. Pollack

I am a college-aged student and went with my family on this tour. Jeanette made the trip enjoyable, was very approachable, and provided the necessary historical context that really made the tour come to life. Nothing like it.

This has to be one of the most informative tours we have ever taken. Jeannette is a walking treasure trove of information on the Jewish history of Amsterdam. We would highly recommend it, and will definitely contact her again next time we are in Amsterdam.

We would highly recommend Jeanette Loeb as a tour guide and hope that if we... More

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

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
