Marsha B.United States
We took this tour on the first day that we arrived in Amsterdam on 8/30/19 after a sleepless flight from the USA. We were very interested in learning about the Holocaust in Amsterdam. Our tour guide, Marianne, was wonderful and we were fascinated by her knowledge. We not only learned so much, but also enjoyed seeing everything through her eyes. Her enthusiasm kept us totally engaged. We had a great tour and would recommend Marianne to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marsha, I am really glad with your wonderful review. You both took a deep interest in what we were seeing and discussing, which adds to the quality of the tour. I was amazed at your energy after a sleepless night! Hope you have enjoyed the next part of your trip too. Kind regards, marianne

Thank you for a wonderful tour! We all really enjoyed the knowledge you have for the old Jewish section of Amsterdam. I appreciate your consideration of how I was feeling.

Jeffrey DodgeUnited States
Marianne gave us a wonderful, customized tour of Amsterdam. We wanted to modify one of her walking tours to cover some sites that we were particularly interested in and Marianne did that without hesitation. We had been to Amsterdam a number of times before and yet we learned a lot on this tour and were very pleased at the tour and the level of knowledge that Marianne was able to convey during the tour. We would highly recommend Marianne and likely use her services the next time we visit Amsterdam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey, I did enjoy this tour with you as well. Hope to see you again! Kind regards, Marianne
William LiebmanBethesda, MD, United States
Marianne's knowledge and sensitivity to the story of Jews in Amsterdam (even though she is not Jewish herself) was very moving. She put the Jewish experience in context of the history of Amsterdam and readily answered numerous questions we had about the city and its architecture that went beyond what we could have expected. In addition to being a font of information, she was great company!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much William for this wonderful reference. It was a very special tour for me! I hope you and Diane will enjoy the countryside and the tulips! Spring has started! kind regards, Marianne

Leon FriedmanUnited States
For those interested in Jewish history in Amsterdam this tour is a must. Marianne was great and very knowledgeable. Two of our party of 4 had distance walking problems, so Marianne suggested we use the tram to get around, as well as walking, which was a great experience. The was a very moving experience and well worth it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Leon! I think you were all great walkers and I am glad you enjoyed the ride on the tram! I hope you have enjoyed the rest of your European tour and enjoyed Prague as much as you did Amsterdam.

Jonathan BloomUnited States
Marianne is a fabulous guide. She was actually early for our tour, which was better than just being on-time. She was very lovely and personable. She not only met, but exceeded our desires and expectations for what we had hoped to see on our tours. She made Amsterdam so very memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for these very positive words! I have really enjoyed my tour with you and I am glad that you will leave with good memories of this wonderful city. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
We highly recommend Marianne who went above and beyond by providing several suggestions for our family vacation in Amsterdam. Her warm friendly demeanor lasted throughout. Lots of background information was provided on our way there, catering to each of our kids age levels and showing great patience as they asked many questions. The information was sufficiently thorough for us to imagine what it must have been like from the 1600s till present day as we walked the streets & stopped at the various sites.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you all, I really enjoyed your company this morning! Enjoy the rest of your holidays in the Netherlands.
