    Excellent tour with Daniel! Daniel went above and beyond to provide us with an interesting and informative experience. He is knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter as well as having a good sense of humor. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide than Daniel to learn about Amsterdam, Anne Frank, and WW2 history!

    Wat doe je in de schoolvakantie met je 4 kinderen (8-13 jaar) in een lockdown? 3 uur lopen door een drukke stad klinkt niet voor de hand liggend. Onze gids Raoul was in staat om mijn kroost volledig geboeid te houden en vragen te stellen. Ze vonden het enorm boeiend om zijn verhalen te horen over wat er zich allemaal afspeelde in de oorlog. Hij weet het ook persoonlijk te maken met anecdotes over zijn moeder. Een bijzonder persoon met een bijzondere gave te verhalen over vervlogen tijden. Aanrader!!

    The tour was really great! While we were following in the footsteps of Anne Frank, we were able to learn a lot about the circumstances of the Second World War. However, our guide also told us a lot about Amsterdam itself. The tour lasted almost 3 hours, but at no point was it lengthy. I particularly liked the enthusiasm of our top guide. He always gave you the space to judge the history and events for yourself. I would do the tour again in a heartbeat!
