What You Can Expect

Meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people in central Amsterdam in time for a 2pm departure. Set out to explore the city’s historic Jewish Quarter on foot, stopping to admire landmarks such as the Jewish Historical Museum and the Portuguese Synagogue.

Along the way, learn more about Amsterdam’s troubled past, as you hear about the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands between 1940 and 1945, and the effects of the brutal regime not only on the Jewish community but on the everyday lives of all those living in Amsterdam. See the head office of the Jewish counsel and hear about key events such as the Winter of Hunger and the February Strike as you pass monuments like the Dokwerker and the Auschwitz Monument.

You’ll also learn more about the Dutch resistance and how they offered secret hiding places to families like the Franks. Your tour ends outside the Anne Frank House, where you’ll learn more about her now-legendary diaries and how they came to be published by her father Otto Frank. Entrance to the museum is not included, but you can opt to visit independently after the tour.

This is a more useful intro recent Dutch Jewish history than a visit to Ann Frank's house. The guide, Arthur, was agreeable and not in the least nationalistic- unusual for the Dutch. We walked in the rain and still it was fine.

Arthur was great, very knowledgeable and we felt moved to be in the actual places where the Jews were shamefully persecuted. Thanks Arthur for keeping us safe whilst crossing the busy bike lanes and crossings!

We did this tour before seeing the Anne Frank Museum, would recommend doing this tour ahead of the AF Museum. Nice walking tour!

Meeting place worked well and we split into 3 groups with approx 15 tourists to each guide. Our guide was called Floor and she was very knowledgeable and was conscientious about waiting for us all before beginning to talk. Wear comfortable shoes and you do cover quite a lot of ground. I learnt a lot about Anne Frank's life which I had not known before.

Awesome guide. We learned A lot about the city and even had time for the Jewish Museum right before the tour. Be prepared to walk a lot, but it was so worth it!

WOW! This was an amazing tour. Our guide was Floor, and she was the most amazing guide I've had on any tour. Floor was full of knowledge and intrigue. Her background in education really allowed her to connect with the audience, and my children who were captivated from the moment she began speaking. The tour we took with Floor came before out actual visit to the Anne Frank house, and this was great because we had context as we walked the halls Anne did during hiding. I highly recommend 360 and Floor. Money well spent and knowledge that will endure a lifetime.

this was an amazing tour of the jewish quarter in Amsterdam. We were sad that we could not get tickets to the Anne Frank house but this tour proved to be so much more with historical information along with original pictures. We got to honor the Auschwitz memorial as well as see the the gold square memories in the pavement signifying lost jewish lives. It was very memorable and I highly recommend it.

This was a fun way to see the sites and immerse oneself in the culture. So much more fun than sitting on a tour bus.
