Great tour guide
, Nov 2019
Great tour guide! Daphne was phenomenal and we had a tremendous time learning about Anne Frank’s life.
Excellent Tour
, Oct 2019
We had a wonderful tour of the area where Anne Frank lived and went to school. We also learned a great deal of history on the parts of Europe impacted by the Nazis. The guide was very knowledgeable and also told us about the development of Amsterdam and the culture there. After reading everything about Anne Frank when I was younger, it was really special to see her neighborhood and learn more about her.

Renada was an absolute sweetheart. Gave us an interesting and informative presentation of the Nazi infiltration of Amsterdam in the WW11 era. And historical background of the Frank family. Also helped me find a restroom when I experienced a GI crisis.

outstanding tour to do in addition to the tour of the secret annex. That is not this tour... this takes you where she lived before going into hiding. Our guide Esther was outstanding and it proved to be every bit as moving as the Anne Frank House itselft

Everyone is familiar with the iconic Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, the hiding place from where Anne, her family and all its occupants were arrested and deported to Nazi death camps, but not many know of Anne and her family's life in Amsterdam, before they had to hide away. If this is the case with you, this Tour with the knowledgable and learned guide, Hermelinde is perfect for you. We met Hermelinde in the Merdeplein Square Park where stands a statue of Anne, all dressed up with layers of clothing and a suitcase, ready to make her way to her hiding place. The park is close to her apartment building, where she and her friends used to play. It was a solemn feeling standing in the same spot as where she would have been watching her flat, calling out to her beloved mother and sister as she played. Next Hermelinde walked us in Anne and her sister's footsteps to their respective schools, which still exist! We also had a chance to visit the bookstore from where her father bought her iconic diary. Hermelinde also took as past many artists flats and studios, pointing out to those who helped shelter Jews during the Nazi regime. We were also shown the homes of the kindly Dutch people who helped tend to Anne, her family and the occupants of Anne Frank House before they were captured. In fact it was one of them, Miep Gies, a lady family friend, who managed to salvage pages of Anne's diary after the Nazi raid, which she handed over to Anne's tearful father, when he was released by the Allied forces from a concentration camp. Thanks to her and Anne's father, we have learnt so much of the Franks' lives, of their near and dear ones, friends and acquaintances and of the terrifying time in Amsterdam and Europe during the Nazi regime. During the walk, Hermelinde also often pointed out to us buildings that existed during the Second World War and which are still standing in all their glory, very well maintained. As we had young children, our Tour ended at a popular ice cream parlour and Hermelinde really allowed us to pile our cones high. Being a native German, Hermelinde has been particularly touched by all the occurances of the Second World War, hence her taking us on this tour, where we were literally walking in many iconic footsteps was truly significant. I whole heartedly recommed this uniquely different Tour. It's honestly not depressing, but instead very informative. It tells you of lives that were being well lived, before they were tragically turned upside down. Do this Tour first and then visit The Anne Frank House- everything will then become much clearer for you. Felicia Variava Albert, Manging Director, Blaze Tours and Travels Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, India

The directions where rediculously confusing. We never made our tour because our directions said to meet in front of the Anne Frank statue in the square by the church. We were there and our guide never showed. The emergency number isn't operational on Saturday so what is the point of having an emergency number at all. And although my email and phone number was on file , no one called me. Finally finding a Dutch citizen to help translate the instructions, we came to find out we were 2.5 miles away from where we were to meet our guide. I asked the ticket lady at the Anne Frank House if we could still tour and she said no. And that this happends all the time . I made these reservations for myself and 5 other people 5 months ago because of the popularity of this museum. ALL of us were terribly disappointed. I have other reviews of Viator. Not good ones

this was probably the worse tour I have ever been on, I called the number on the voucher because it was confusing as to the meeting place, paid for a taxi because we were in the wrong place and the guide was very sweet and nice and totally not his fault, spend most of his time talking about anything else but Ann Frank, I feel that it was an over priced tour and I would not recommend it to anyone. Just honestly misleading to what it really is. I have booked with Viator many times and can't say enough about all the other tours but this one was a great disappointment.

We loved or Private Walking Tour in Amsterdam. We had four grandchildren with us and they were mesmerized by our tour guide. We had gone to the Anne Frank House the afternoon before. Out tour guide helped them experience where Anne Frank lived with her family before the attic, the school and neighborhood where she lived as a young girl and made it so real for the kids. I can't thank Viator enough for making our tours in Amsterdam so amazing and helping us to teach our grandchildren the culture and history of a wonderful country.

This tour was a great disappointment. While the sights we saw were interesting, our guide's knowledge of the surrounding events and history was very limited and added nothing to the experience. She also appeared to offer controversial views of the history of the Holocaust in the Netherlands which could be viewed as offensive.

DO NOT EXPECT TO SEE THE INSIDE OF THE FAMOUS ANNE FRANK HOUSE. We were duped, robbed and provided with a horrible private guide that didn't have a good grasp of the facts and feigned surprise that this 130 per person tour didn't include the house. Shame on you VIATOUR. I've been on many of your trips but this one completely ripped me off and for that I will strongly encourage other tours outside your company.

This was an amazing tour. The guide - Juliet - was very knowledgeable about Anne Frank and the area in which she and her family lived. It was very touching to see the Frank house, the schools that Anne and her sister attended, the park in which they played, and the bookstore where she picked out her first diary. This is a must for anyone who wants to explore the story beyond the Anne Frank House where the family went into hiding. Well worth every penny! Thank you Juliet!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was great to see how the Frank's lived prior to going into hiding. It gave us a much better understanding of the sights that we saw at the Annex, Anne Frank House Tour when we went. Dot was an amazing tour guide with an abundance of knowledge for that time period. We enjoyed seeing the bookstore where Anne's father bought her diary. It was nice to see the school Anne attended and the area in which they lived in Amsterdam. Definitely worth the time and the money.

LOVED this tour! Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about Anne Frank's life leading up to and during her time in hiding. This tour does not include admission to the Anne Frank House. You spend a few hours walking around her neighborhood-- home, school, ice cream shop. Highly recommend!
