This was a first class tour with Ben, who, as a retired History professor, is both knowledgeable and interesting. We learned much about what took place in Amsterdam during World War 2, including how the Jews were treated. Highly recommended.

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.
