    Wat doe je in de schoolvakantie met je 4 kinderen (8-13 jaar) in een lockdown? 3 uur lopen door een drukke stad klinkt niet voor de hand liggend. Onze gids Raoul was in staat om mijn kroost volledig geboeid te houden en vragen te stellen. Ze vonden het enorm boeiend om zijn verhalen te horen over wat er zich allemaal afspeelde in de oorlog. Hij weet het ook persoonlijk te maken met anecdotes over zijn moeder. Een bijzonder persoon met een bijzondere gave te verhalen over vervlogen tijden. Aanrader!!

    Travel guide was a local young man who knew a lot about Amsterdam, Dutch culture and extensive knowledge. Very interesting and also with many correct nuances which made it a very 'open' experience. Real enrichment & different approach to get to know this top city
