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 council 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.

Entrance to the museum is not included, but you can opt to visit independently after the tour.

Terrible experience
Ropafadzo_M, Jul 2022
I arrived in front of the Anne Frank House as instructed but none of the tour guides were there. Wasted my money :(

Dan_B, Jul 2022
Our guide was outstanding! He knew the city and Anne Frank very well and added many details bringing it to life.
We messed up, They helped us get it right
HarryGoldman, Jul 2022
We missed our tour. We were in the wrong place, totally our fault. The tour operator was flexible and worked with us to find a workable solution. Not every tour operator is that nice. Very happy with the service.
Good tour but needs inside of house included.
Frank_M, Jul 2022
The tour guide was a female. She was very knowledgeable. My spouse and I took this tour. Our only complaint is that the tour of inside Anne's house should be included in this tour. We weren't able to get tickets inside and that was what my wife wanted to do most. It was very disappointing and it doesn't make sense not to be able to see it when walking that whole tour.
A walk through history
Heather_C, Jul 2022
Our guide, Janet was very knowledgeable and did an amazing job sharing this story. We really enjoyed walking the story of Anne Frank.
Absolutely great!
Tatiana_d, Jul 2022
It was and endearing, informative and well organized tour. Our guide, Steve, was exceptional! ¡Un guía excepcional! 100% recomendado. You get a clear picture of the Netherlands (Amsterdam) during the war, in site, and provided us valuable information about the Frank’s family, their protectors and the social context.
Great way to see the city!
Cherie_L, Jun 2022
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The small group size made it possible to ask questions and have conversations!
A great way to learn…
Kaz_D, Jun 2022
Really great tour. Very informative and also emotional given the subject matter. The time flew by and we were sad when the tour finished.
Worst Customer Service & Not the tour to take !
AMIT_N, Jun 2022
Now here is what the catch is. These people advertise the tour showing Anne Frank photo but it isn’t the tour of the place. It’s walk through Jewish quarter which ends at Anne Frank home. When I reached there I found that this isn’t the tour. I kindly requested them to refund my money but they said sorry it’s past 24 hours. This is worst ever customer service! I didn’t even take the tour as I wanted to visit the museum. Anyways the tour guide seemed nice but this isn’t the Anne Frank home tour and this is worst kind of customer service too. I will never book any tour from Viator going ahead !

Zoe_K, Jun 2022
There is no entry to the museum which was a huge disappointment. I feel this was a misrepresentation.
Very informative worth it...
annette_p, Jun 2022
For us, this tour was much better than visiting the anne frank house. Being that the original house burnt in 2015, we did not feel the need to see the house. The tour took us from jewish section to the anne frank house and got more of an indepth experience about that time in history. Our guide as a history teacher so was very knowledgeable.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hi there! We think you might refer to the fire that broke out in Anne Frank's family house in 2017, the Anne Frank House, where they hid from the Nazis, is still intact! Anyway, thank you so much for your review, we are glad to know you appreciated your time with us! Kind regards, Giovanni Ramon 360 Amsterdam Tours

Daniel was an excellent tour guide. He really brought to life what life was like during the war. His insights and knowledge of the city and its history made the tour very enjoyable.

REBECCA_L, Jun 2022
We loved every single step of the Anne Frank/Jewish Quarter walking tour. Our guide was a great story teller and she delivered information with grace and utmost respect. We would highly recommend this tour as a ‘must do’ when you are visiting Amsterdam.

Manuel and The Jewish Walking Tour
Martin_F, Jun 2022
Manuel was a font of information. He was excited about his ability to share this lovely city and Jewish experience with us. He was inclusive and made sure to explain everything that he knew. We would certainly recommend this excursion and hopefully the next participants will be lucky to meet Manuel.
A smart and insightful experience.
David_W, Jun 2022
We ran a little late but managed to catch up and join a group. Our guide, Manuel, was wonderful. Informed, insightful, and caring. We learned and reflected and came home smart. Highly recommend. Bring good shoes, a camera and notebook.
Excellent tour.
Cassie_C, Jun 2022
Arthur was great guide. The tour was engaging for us adults, who have read Anne Frank’s book, but also for our 8 yr old who has not read it. New details were added since my last tour 13 years ago, and a bigger picture of the holocaust and war was painted in my mind. An excellent tour and a great tour guide. I recommend.
Amazing experience
Melissa_T, Jun 2022
Holly was so enthusiastic and you can see she genuinely enjoys her job. Full of knowledge and had a beautiful story to share, would highly recommend.
