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.

I actually didn't realize this ONLY a walking tour and not a tour of the Anne Frank House, but I actually enjoyed this much more. We were able to walk around and learn about the different areas that were important to the Frank family during the time. We were given so much information it was fantastic. We stopped by an art piece that was a memorial for all those who died in Auschwitz. This was a great learning tour.

This was an amazing and eye opening tour. My tour guide had family history connected to Holocaust. Her testimony made the learning experience that much better.

Floor was a great tour guide - very knowledgeable and managed to hold the attention of the whole group. Her passion and enthusiasm was evident and drew in the interest of all of those on the tour. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to those interested in the subject matter.

Guide was best we've ever had, her name is Floora or something like that. Very knowledgeable about the topic, excellent storyteller, and great at engaging with us adults and children from all backgrounds. We got rain, sleet, and snow during the tour but she kept going and we kept wanting to hear more. We were unable to get tickets to the Anne Frank house but this tour totally made up for it with how well it was done. Really, Floora thank you for a job very well done.

Our tour guide, Arthur, was extremely well-prepared, with an iPad with documents, pictures, etc. to augment our tour. We learned so much through during this tour. Cannot HIGHLY recommend it enough. If winter, wear gloves and hat! Can be very cold. Luckily we wore lots of layers and coat and hats, but others wore less and were so cold. Such an important tour to take, don't miss it!

Arthur was very knowledgeable and friendly. His addition of personal insight, his love for his country, and visual aids (new photos from the town archives) made me feel like I got to know more about the city’s history, than if I traveled on my own. Definitely recommend!

This tour was a definate must do and for us a highlight of our time in Amsterdam. We were lucky to have a personal tour from our guide Floor as some other people didn't turn up. My husband and I really enjoyed listening to Floor, who used to be a teacher and was very interesting and knowledgeable about the war history and its impact on everyone. My husband had never read the Diary of AF so this tour was helpful for him and was a great precursor to the next day as we then visited AF's House museum. Definately an excellent tour to do, which will bring to life the events of the time.
