Peter’s walking tour through Amsterdam’s WWII and Holocaust History was a highlight of my trip through Europe. The key is that Peter is a historian who has done quite impressive research into this topic and acts as a guide rather than an guide who has...More

My partner and I (from London) joined tour guide Peter Schaapman and a couple from the US on a WWII walking tour. I can't recommend this highly enough. Peter was able to bring the 1940s in Amsterdam into full colour with his collection of stories,...More

We recommend this tour if youre interested in WW2 history. You'll hear individual stories and see landmarks you would not hear about otherwise.

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
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
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
