It doesn't get better than this - our Guide, Ben was perfect: engaging, friendly, knowledgable and very helpful. His use of historical photos combined with his many years of research and personal stories during the tour were well worth the fee. If you are interested in World War II and/or the Holocaust in Amsterdam, this tour is for YOU... Five Stars Plus!

My friend and I went on the walking tour with Peter last week and it was incredible. A lot of the tour was based off of research Peter had done while at university. This was great as he was able to not only provide a unique experience but also able to answer all of our questions. Would highly recommend, especially since the price is so reasonable. Keep up the great work, Peter!

Our family really enjoyed the walking history tour with Peter and we saw many things that most tourists would miss or not understand. Peter's stories of Amsterdam in the war years made the history and sights come alive and it was moving to hear so many personal stories. The pictures of then and now made us all relate to the present sights of Amsterdam. Some of the sculptures we would never have found on our own. A thoroughly worthwhile tour!

We booked the tour online before our visit to Amsterdam. We were sent very clear details about where to meet, some extra information and a very useful comment about being aware that the weather can be chilly as the tour involves some standing to look at sites. Ben was very friendly and really informative about the occupation of Amsterdam, he made personal comments along the way about Amsterdam and these were also interesting. I would certainly recommend the tour and suggest you ask for Ben as he was professional, interesting and concerned for our safety amongst the manic cyclists at all times! The trip entailed a coffee stop which was very welcome and we were able to spend some time as a group chatting. All in all very enjoyable.
Since our return he has sent extra details.
