Peter gave a fascinating tour of Amsterdam describing many important sites of WW11 and Holocaust events. Many of these sites are out in plain view but most people would just walk past unaware of the history that took place there. I enthusiastically urge visitors to...More

Peter was very well prepared and enthusiastic of his subject. We specially liked the pre-material for orientation that Peter sent and his ability to make history living during the walk.

Before going on vacation to Amsterdam, we did some search for what to see when visiting Amsterdam. The HistoryWalks.eu came up and we decided to request for a walk through email. Shortly after we were offered, a walk and we exchanged mobile numbers as well....More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

It wasn't a fast pace. It was walking on gravel and the beach. We walked around the American Cemetery also. So walking probably a mile in total. Email MAGALI and let her know your concerns. She will be specific to you needs... More
