What To Expect

Meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people in central Amsterdam in time for departure. Set out to explore the city’s historic Jewish Quarter on foot, stopping to admire landmarks such as the Jewish Historical Museum and the Portuguese Synagogue.

Along the way, learn more about Amsterdam’s troubled past, as you hear about the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands between 1940 and 1945, and the effects of the brutal regime not only on the Jewish community but on the everyday lives of all those living in Amsterdam. See the head office of the Jewish council and hear about key events such as the Winter of Hunger and the February Strike as you pass monuments like the Dokwerker and the Auschwitz Monument.

You’ll also learn more about the Dutch resistance and how they offered secret hiding places to families like the Franks. Your tour ends outside the Anne Frank House, where you’ll learn more about her now-legendary diaries and how they came to be published by her father Otto Frank. Entrance to the museum is not included, but you can opt to visit independently after the tour.

Gail_S, Sept 2023
Our guide Clare shared stories and details of the experience of those living in the Jewish quarter of Amsterdam during WWII. Her passion for the subject and the importance of never forgetting was evident. Excellent experience.

Johana the super guide
Anup_P, Sept 2023
Johana from 360 Amsterdam was great. She was able to explain in detail the history and story of Anne Frank. She was able to answer questions asked by the tourists. Also during the way she explained us with lot many things about Amsterdam, local culture and reasons behind things. Super guide she was.

My money was scammed by Viator.
Luke_B, Sept 2023
I paid 65e for tickets through the website for 26/09. The museum was closed and Viator will not give a refund.
Not an Anne Frank tour
Nancy_L, Sept 2023
I booked this months ago thinking that I would be able to go into the house itself and that it would be really about the Anne Frank story. Neither was the case. I take responsibility for not reading the full description closer. But, even with that, this isn’t about the Anne Frank story. Our young guide was knowledgeable to a point, but sadly he had many “facts” wrong to what even the Anne Frank official site has documented. While I appreciate his desire to be a patriot to his country, there are numerous accounts of disrespect and disavowal by the people of Amsterdam towards the Jewish sector during the war. History is perspective and I felt as if his was very leaning to one side. Mostly walking and seeing various buildings and parks for two hours, with the hope and promise of the Anne Frank house, was a total let down. I heard a comment from a fellow tourer that this really had very little to do with the Anne Frank story. I concur. This young tour guide kept trying to quiz his patrons rather than be a fountain of information. We tipped him because he was trying, but this was two hours of walking around with very little information about Anne Frank, the title character of this tour.
Great tour
Jo_H, Sept 2023
Great informative tour by Angie. Would highly recommend, highly knowledgeable and experienced tour guide.
A must do tour!
Brian_W, Sept 2023
We booked this last minute on our only day in Amsterdam. So glad we did! Alexandra, our guide, had so many historical facts to add to the knowledge we already have on WWII and the holocaust. She offered facts that answered a few questions we have had over the years. Everything about this tour was just what we were looking for. If you get a chance to go, do not hesitate. And if you get Alexandra, you’re in good hands.
Great local guide !
Brianna_P, Sept 2023
Our guide was fantastic - she was very warm and friendly and knowledgeable and she answered lots of questions happily and made us feel engaged and welcome in the city.

Ann Frank and the Amsterdam community
Renee_R, Sept 2023
Wonderful walking tour through parts of Amsterdam. The tour shared historical facts with a good blend of information about Ann Frank, the city, and people before and during WWII.
Provides excellent sequence
Larrie_K, Sept 2023
His interaction with the group was excellent. He certainly didn't seem to be delivering a memorized speech.
Informative and enjoyable
Jane_O, Sept 2023
Lena was a great guide with the appropriate amount of detail and stories. We really enjoyed her positive energy. The tour was very interesting. I just wish there was a way for the tour to include a trip inside the Anne Frank house because tickets are hard to come by. Thank you.
A compelling story of bravery and tragedy
Jane_B, Sept 2023
Our guide was very knowledgeable and told the powerful story of the Frank family as well as all people in Holland in WWII and the years before and after.
Journey through time
MaryAnn_H, Sept 2023
Enjoyed this walking tour very much as we wove our way from Jewish quarter through Dam Square and eventually to what is called Ann Frank house. Many moving memorials and history was brought to life.
Good vibes
James_B, Sept 2023
The tour was very informative and the guide was very knowledgeable, just want to thank them, also for being very accommodating by changing our tour time at the last minute , when we messed up and arrived at the wrong location, I cannot thank them enough, really turned our stressful moment around for us.
Walking in the rain! With the information shining through.
bash, Sept 2023
Even though it was pouring with rain and as a result only a small group, our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject. He made sure we took shelter where we could and informed us of the surroundings each time we did. Would thoroughly recommend
