      Great tour to learn more about the Anne Frank story. Even though I did read the book I learned so much more with this tour. Since it is a private tour it is a very personal experience, it feels like you are doing the tour with a friend. We had great conversations with our guide and he really made us feel comfortable. His knowledge about Anne Frank and the Jewish history is very very exceptional. A must-do when visiting Amsterdam. Special thanks to our guide Tom.

      Very informative tour with a great guide. Our guide Stan has so much knowledge about Anne Frank and the city in general. He had an answer for every question. We already visited the Anne Frank museum last year but we learned so much more with this tour. A must-do when visiting Amsterdam. Special thanks to our guide Stan.
