Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This cost-effective tour covers Amsterdam’s Jewish sites while including a guide to provide context.
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.

Two tour leaders broke up a massive group of about 40 into two groups. Our guide, Serena, was very knowledgeable, personable, and spoke well during the 2 hour + walking tour. We learned a lot about Amsterdam's history prior to the beginning of WW2 and as well as the time it was occupied by the Nazis. There was some referencing of the Frank Family but additional information about the "Stumbling Blocks" project, and how the design of the narrow Dutch houses could be adapted to hide anyone seeking escape from persecution during that time. All in all, a well-rounded walking tour over cobblestones and full of history. One brief stop half-way for toilets and water. Highly recommended!

Excellent tour: small group; informative and personable guide (I can't remember his name unfortunately) that walked us through the tour with pertinent and interesting information including extra tidbits that came up through the walk. He was easy to talk and listen to. We did not, unfortunately, plan our trip well that morning and missed the morning tour that we had booked; they were so easy and happy to deal with and let us join the afternoon tour instead. I would highly recommend and would even go again.

We had a one day layover in Amsterdam, due to missing a flight connection out of Zurich.We had never been to Holland before and wanted to get a tour and history so we opted for this walking tour and were not disappointed.

This was an amazing tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out with little stories items during the Nazi occupation which you would normally walk past and not give a second glance but which had a significant impact on the people living there .This tour is highly recommended.
This tour did not include the tour of the Anne Frank House - We did pass the queue for this which had a wait time of over 4hrs
