“Jewish Amsterdam Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

While in Amsterdam we had the pleasure of a very professional
and extensive tour of the Jewish quarters. We have taken numerous similar tours in the past in other parts of the world but found Naomi to be the best of the best. The three hours we spent with her was a highlight of our trip.

“Jewish Quarter tour with Naomi Koopmans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing three hour tour of the Jewish quarter with Naomi Koopmans. Her knowledge of Jewish history is extensive and impressive, We learned so much. She was friendly and informative of all things Amsterdam. We were lucky to have her to ourselves. Though we were a bit jet lagged , Naomi energized us with her enthusiasm and the time flew by. We highly suggest reserving her for a tour if you are planning a visit to Amsterdam. This is a must on the to do list,

“Very informative and engaging”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

My friend and I really enjoyed our tour with Naomi. We were fortunate that it was just the two of us and she answered any and all questions we had, including about today's Amsterdam. She really knew her Jewish history and told us facts and stories we wouldn't have learned otherwise. The tour didn't cover a large physical area, so it wouldn't be too much of an issue for those who can't walk too far. We are SO glad we took this tour and would highly recommend Naomi. She's a great tour guide!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Naomi is a one-woman show, expert in all matters relating to the life of Jews in Amsterdam, past and present. She was entertaining, as well, but really wowed us with her inside stories of "how and why" things have happened here as they have. She is quite international, knowledgable in art history and multi-cultural matters. The tour with her was informative and stirring. Eli M.
