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.

This tour is highly recommended to all those who want to learn and know more about Amsterdam history. Amsterdam is well known for its main highlights - involving the red light district and legalized drugs - but Amsterdam has also a ton of history and museums on offer. Our tour leader, Ronald, was very informed and walked us through several interesting places whilst explaining their roles. A bonus point worth mentioning is that our guide stayed with us for an additional hour, over the stipulated time, whilst answering all our questions. The tour ends near the Anne Frank house which we combined soon afterwards. Highly recommended.

Super visite, très intéressante, la guide était très disponible, a répondu à toutes nos questions sur la vie à Amsterdam pendant la guerre. La visite a duré plus longtemps que prévu, elle ne l’a pas bâclée malgré la pluie (prévoyez un parapluie même s’il fait soleil au début) et nous a même donné des bons plans.

A really great tour that we were allowed to do with João. You can tell that João leads with passion. He created the right mood with his stories and through his words you could put yourself in the position of that time very well. There were even a few tears. If you are staying in Amsterdam, we definitely recommend doing the tour! Thank you for this experience.
