I enjoyed the tour - it was led by Peter's partner, Ben, and was informative. It was not great, but it did tell the story of some of the Jewish activity during the war, and covered some of the key areas where important events took place. It is not expensive I thought - 25 Euro - and some things were quite fascinating... You are taken to a point, and shown a photo taken from that same point, showing some event from the war, and it's a bit unreal to see the actual road the armoured vehicles drove on.
Ben distributed a pamphlet containing the dates on which Jews living on a particular street were killed over a period, and it really does have the result of helping remove the "abstraction" that is associated with 6 million people killed, when you see the names and dates of dad, some time later, mom, and some time even later, baby or child, being killed - just on a specific street. For this I rate the tour well.
What was not great is it appeared towards the end Ben became more keen to get the tour over, and the last past felt rushed. He should also read up on Amsterdam trivia to improve the walk between attractions.
