Ian is an excellent guide. Other than seeing things on the walking tour we gained an understanding of the history of the city and the country, particularly about the time of WWII and the holocaust. We would highly reccomend him.

Ian is a terrific guide. He has such energy and passion, he makes Amsterdam's Jewish history come alive. His tour is replete with anecdotes and very interesting stories of the Jewish history in Amsterdam. Some of his own family were victims of the WWII Nazi atrocities and he relates many stories associated with various sites in the city related to that history. If you are looking for a fabulous tour of the City center and Jewish history of Amsterdam Ian is your man. My wife and I loved his tour.

Our tour with Ian provided a framework for our visit to Amsterdam and was one of the most meaningful and elucidating experiences of our trip. His knowledge and enthusiasm were impressive, but it was his willingness to share his family's personal history that made our time with him most memorable. A+++
Every guide should be like Ian. First, he knows his stuff--VERY well. While this was a slightly Jewish-centric tour, we got a great appreciation for the city and it's neighborhoods. Also, he is connected. The locals stop him, he's personally involved in the fabric of the city which gives him insight few have (Google him!) And finally--he is FUN & engaging. My family didn't want the walking tour to end. Ian is so animated and uses personal experiences to add texture--he's that good. Recommend highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike, i loved meeting your family and you. Somehow it felt like you were an old friend of mine! Stay in touch! Kind regards Ian.
