“The Anne Frank Big Picture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Our tour with Naomi Koopmans was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. Her walking tour was both a delight and highly informative. Naomi is an articulate expert in the history of Jewish Amsterdam. If we had done a tour of the Anne Frank Museum alone, we would have been left with far more questions than answers. Naomi gave us a great historical picture of how and from where the Jews arrived, the synagogues they built, what life was like for early Jews in Amsterdam and the prequel to the Holocaust. She took us to the most important places of Jewish life. She filled in the picture of the Jewish experience before, during and after the Holocaust. Naomi incorporates a visit to the Anne Frank Museum into a most memorable experience. That deeper understanding, made The Diary and Anne Frank's experience all the more meaningful. We highly recommend this to everyone who visits Amsterdam.

“Excellent Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

My husband & I signed up for the Jewish Amsterdam Walking Tour because, as Jews, were wanted to learn about the history of the Jews in the Netherlands. We were not disappointed. The tour was very informative and Naomi Koopmans is an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. We highly recommend this tour.

“Comprehensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

At the end of a ten day tour on the Rhine we landed in Amsterdam. You would think we would be toured out. Not so! A group from the ship booked Naomi's Jewish tour in Amsterdam. We had a comprehensive 3 hour tour of the Jewish history in Amsterdam. The Portuguese Synagogue was amazing. The perimeter was so unusual. Naomi was very knowledgable. She is personable and professional. I would highly recommend this tour. Dana E

“Amazing tour, HIGHLY recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We did the Jewish Amsterdam Tour with Naomi in August before our Baltic cruise. We were with several other couples (most of whom I had met online via a cruise website) and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Naomi is extremely knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended for anyone who is Jewish who visits Amsterdam (and even those who are not)! Oh, and she was very flexible about scheduling, too! I only found out about this tour (thanks to TripAdvisor) the week before our trip, and she work with me and the other couples to find a time that was convenient for us.

“Walking Tour of Jewish Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Naomi was personable, knowledgable, and professional. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour through the Jewish Historical Museum and the beautiful Portuguese Synagogue. If you love history, or want a bigger picture of the story of the Jews in Amsterdam, I recommend booking this tour with Naomi in addition to the ever-popular Anne Frank House, which you can do independently.
