    I really liked our tour guide Saskia. She gave us another tour because the one we signed up for was misleading. We thought we were getting a tour of Anna Frank House and that neighbourhood (this is should be much more clear on the website). Our guide adapted very well to what we wanted and she was very helpful in getting us tickets for the Anne Frank House.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood tour--Linda made it very personal.

    June 2016 - Linda Verbeek was our tour guide. She did an wonderful job of bringing Anne Frank's experiences to life for us. Her descriptions of Anne's personality, family life, and life during the War were vivid. We had tickets for the Anne Frank House a couple hours before the neighborhood tour and didn't realize that Anne's neighborhood was so far from the House she hid in. The distance is not walkable. But, we figures out the tram system and got to Anne's neighborhood in plenty of time. The tour description should emphasize the distance between the House and Anne's neighborhood. We had a private tour for 4 adults. After the tour, Linda treated us to coffee/beer so we could continue the conversation and ask questions. Excellent tour--highly recommend this tour.

    Very informative guide and fascinating tour

    If you're interested in wartime Holland and/or Anne Frank, make sure you book this. This walking tour in a quiet residential neighbourhood takes in the area in which Anne Frank lived, played and went to school. Our guide, Willem was clearly passionate about his subject, explaining more about Anne's childhood and the Dutch background to the Second World War. Full of fascinating stories and very knowledgeable regarding social and political history, and was happy to give us extra time. Really worthwhile to go "behind the scenes."
