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.

Our guide Joe was professional, funny and very knowledgeable....this walk is not for the feint hearted....we were a group of three and really enjoyed it....the history was amazing.....well done!
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.
This was a excellent tour, the Guide was knowledgeable and excellent. It was very informative.
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.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this tour, having already toured the Anne Frank house prior to taking this walking tour. I was impressed however, by the extra information that was presented by our guide, Talia. She was fantastic, and pointed out many small details, such as the stolperstein, which I had never heard of prior to the tour. Once she mentioned them though, it made me aware and I now look for them as I travel Europe.
I would recommend this to anyone who is doing the Anne Frank house, and to do it prior, as it would give a great background before entering.
Very informative and interesting...loved this tour and the guide is excell not. It really gave me the background to help me understand history. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a very informational tour! We loved our tour guide.She was smart and very warm. So glad we did it!
This tour gave us a great introduction to the Jewish Amsterdam that Anne Frank grew up in. We met outside the Jewish museum and our knowledgeable guide told us about conditions in Holland faced by the Jews as they dealt with Nazi occupation. We passed a monument to the tram strike which marked an early example of resistance to the Germans. We continued past a sidewalk plate outside of a home once owned by Jews. Such monuments which are throughout Europe document entire familys who were dispossessed of their property and sent to death camps. We finished at the Anne Frank House where the Franks and their cohorts hid for 2 years before they were arrested. we passed the church whose bells the Franks heard on a daily basis and a statue to Anne Frank .The tour ends at the house but does not include a visit to it. Currently online tickets have to be procured to visit the house. This tour was a great introduction to the Franks and the places they knew in Amsterdam. It was great.
Our guide was terrific! Very knowledgeable and personable! He knew more about the Anne Frank Museum than the guide we had at the museum. Highly recommended!
The guide was very knowledgeable of the area and brought to life the time and place of the Jewish Quarter during WW II
Appreciated this tour very much and Joe was charming and an outstanding, knowledgeable tour guide. Answered all our questions - and also included some general history of Amsterdam. I also took the 3 hour walking tour and thoroughly enjoyed both. They did not overlap too much at all. This was a great tour to take before visiting the Ann Frank House.
Don't miss this! Such a deeply moving experience to walk through the house and reacquaint ourselves with the Anne Frank story. Especially touching for us, as we had visited Auschwitz only two weeks before. A visit here drives home the horror and profound sadness of WW2 more deeply than many other sites. Allow about 2 to 2.5 hours - there is much to see,.
The tour was fascinating, and the guide provided not only a wealth of historical knowledge but also several personal anecdotes about her own family's experiences during the war. The tour covers a wide range of information, from the history and experience of the Frank family specifically, to the history of the Amsterdam Jewish community at large, Amsterdam during WWII, the Amsterdam resistance movement, liberation at the end of the war, and interesting facts about Amsterdam's distinctive architecture. Highly recommended!
Great way to explore Amsterdam through the Jewish quarter. However be sure to get tickets to Anne Frank museum in advance as tour does not include museum entrance.
A wonderful educational experience in a beautiful city. Acquired so much historical insight from a very knowledgeable tour guide.Well worth the price paid for this optional excursion.
Our guide was amazing. A very informative tour. Note, there is a lot of walking, so wear good shoes!
