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 pleasant walking tour around the Jewish part of the city. Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. It was nice to ask him questions as we navigated through the city. We finished at the Anne Frank House which was convenient for a visit there. However, book the ticket for the house in advance as it is busy and not always available! If you have time, the Jordaan area opposite is lovely to wander around.

I can not recommend this walking tour enough!! Janet, our guide, was absolutely fantastic and very friendly. The tour is very interesting and educational, we learnt so much. Janet was always happy to answer questions and also gave recommendations for what to do during our visit. We did the tour on our final day which was a lovely way to end the trip but I’d recommend doing it on your first couple of days to make the most of their recommendations! 5 stars, thank you so much.

we had a terrific experience with our guide Linus who made our discovery of Anne Frank and the Jewish quarter both informative and enjoyable. He gave the group a very good insight into the lives of Anne and her family as they hid in hiding under the Nazi occupation of Holland.
