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.

Clare, our guide, was amazing. The tour was extremely detailed and covered so much history throughout the main parts of the city. As a family we learnt so much and are really happy we chose to do this tour. We would absolutely recommend this to anyone willing to learn more about the Jewish history of Amsterdam, and the Frank family. A really worthwhile experience. Thank you!

Our guide was Joao. We really enjoyed the tour. João was a phenomenal guide! He totally immersed us in the history of the Jews in World War II and especially in the history of Anne Frank and took us with him. He was very authentic and professional. A huge thank you! We definitely recommend him, do this tour with João and discover Amsterdam in a very special way.

Over two hours of first class insight into the lives of Amsterdam’s Jews during WWII, with a special focus on the Frank family. Our guide Sandra managed to present the story in a compelling yet informative way, which was highly moving. We would be very happy to take another tour with her.
