Private Jewish quarter tour

Amsterdam is the city that has the largest diversity in the world when it comes to communities, ethnic groups and religions! Immigrants from all over built this successful and liberal city. Jews have been part of this process since the early days. Around 1650 a group of prominent Sephardic Jews started building a synagogue at the Daniel Meijerplein near the former Jewish quarter of Amsterdam; at the time it was the largest synagogue in the world. Opposite this stunning temple sits a complex of three synagogues built by Ashkenazi Jews. It now houses the Amsterdam Jewish Historical Museum. During our Jewish history walking tour you will go through the Jewish old town with a local insider, get to know about the people that inhabited this place and how they played an important role in the history of Amsterdam.

Communication by email was quite efficient. Tom likes to get a sense of your background and interests. Even before we began our tours both Carin and Henk were keen to know what we’d already seen and what in particular we were interested in seeing and doing. Both were very knowledgeable and clearly enthusiastic about sharing their interests with us. While a historical background or context is critical in appreciating tours such as these neither guide resorted to a mere recitation of dry historical facts or dates.
