Full description

Find out more about Anne Frank on a small-group or private guided walking tour of Amsterdam, led by an expert guide. Discover the city’s centuries-old Jewish Quarter in a small group setting while your guide weaves in anecdotes about Anne Frank's life and World War II. You will hear all about Anne Frank’s family dynamics, their move from Germany, their time in hiding, and her father’s life after the war. Start the tour outside the Portuguese Synagogue, a 17th-century Sephardic construction that still functions as a synagogue today. Find out about the background of the original Jewish neighborhood and how it developed over the centuries. Your guide will share stories of Anne Frank’s love of writing, the conditions she lived through in 1930s and 1940s Amsterdam, and how her diary became so famous. You will also hear about the Dutch Resistance during the Second World War and see where secret hiding places were located. Over the course of the tour, you will walk by the Jewish Historical Museum, stop at the Auschwitz Monument and see the outside of the Anne Frank House façade.

A lovely two hour walk with Libby who was a great tour guide. Fantastic insight in to the life of Anne Frank and Amsterdam in WW11. Just loved understanding about the metal plaques on the floor - so sad. Pity we couldn’t get tickets for Anne Frank House but that was not the fault of this tour. You need to book about 6 weeks ahead to get tickets.

El tour estuvo excelente, el guía tiene muy buen dominio del tema, es muy amable y gentil. Fue muy interesante recorrer las zonas de Amsterdam que guardan la historia de lo ocurrido en tiempos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y en especial de la familia Frank. El guía brinda detalles muy interesantes en cada uno de los puntos de la visita. Recomiendo el tour para todos aquellos que gusten de la historia de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y sobre todo de la vida de Anne Frank.

amazing tour! really amazing guide (Alec). he had his own personalized touch to the tour. very poignant to stand in the places where some of the massacres happened. always tied it back to Anne Frank. he provided context, meaning, situational awareness and his personal opinion. one of the most brilliant tours that i have done and i will highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in WW2 or Amsterdam or Jewish culture or just wanting to expand their horizons. He had everyone engrossed the entire time.
