Naomi Koopmans conducts a wonderful tour of Jewish Amsterdam. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Jews arriving and settling in Amsterdam and the centuries that followed. The time we spent with Naomi was a highlight of our visit to Amsterdam.

loved it. very interesting and the tour leader was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend it. It's mostly geared towards adults though. Children would not benefit from it and might be traumatized. Over 12 would be okay.

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

I agree with VAKELSEY1. Contact Naomi Koopmans. See the Sephardi Synagogue & Museum. Also if you have time close by is the Resistance Museum (Verzetsmuseum) very worthwhile but not talked about so much.
