Peter was an excellent, highly knowledgeable guide, and the tour was really illuminating to all the history in the city of Amsterdam from the Second World War. Important for remembering those who were lost and those who sacrificed on behalf of them.

I've just completed a 3 hour walking tour with Peter Schaapman. Though the subject matter is heavy, it is history. Walking with Peter, you learn the Dutch resistance, the collaborators, those that assisted in Jews escaping Nazi's grasp. It was wonderfully informative and very important...More

We had a wonderful tour with Peter- he's a great source of information and we highly recommend! Block off three hours; the amount of walking was moderate and easy.

Outstanding three hours spent with Peter. Providing engaging banter, historical stories with pictorial details, and the ability to answer myriad questions, Peter was an ideal guide. If you want to learn about Amsterdam and WWII, take this walk . . .you will be enriched.

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
