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

We did this tour in the morning, and then the Anne Frank museum visit later in the afternoon note: walking tour is in different part of Amsterdam, and timed tickets are needed in advance for the AF Museum. Doing the walking tour in the morning added so much dimension to what we saw later in the museum. Esther, our tour guide, was wonderful. She carefully set up the big picture background in terms of immigration causes and life in this area in the 1930s before layering with many interesting facts about the Frank family. The architecture in the area was fascinating and we aren't big architecture buffs. We have 2 teens and she was very effective in finding ways to engage them. She truly painted a picture of what life was like for Jewish immigrants and how the Dutch were not necessarily complicit but very naive in allowing the Nazis to separate the Jewish community and slowly build their efforts to persecute them. Handled all of our questions very smoothly.

Wonderful ... humanizing tour of Amsterdam. This had a powerful impact on our children, and us. We left the experiences wanting to more proactively have and inspire kindness, inclusiveness and acceptance.

Very good tour of where Anne Frank lived before the annex, her school and the store where her parents bought her diary. Was an excellent precursor to visiting the Annex.

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 was excellent! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the Frank family and Anne that you just don't get from the books.

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!

Not sure what we expected but it was interesting seeing the places before Anne Frank and her family went into hiding. The tour guide was great and the coffee at the end was a great tough.

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!

The tour guide was knowledgeable and was very friendly. The only caution is that it does not provide access to the Anne Frank house and museum.

This was definitely the highlight of my visit to Amsterdam! My guide, Mossimo, was extremely knowledgeable and gracious, pointing out sites and monuments that might otherwise have been overlooked. I highly recommend, and assure that the walk is light-moderate, and well worth the effort.

The Anne Frank Walking Tour is a very informative and also extremely interesting tour. The guide took our small group of 4 people on a 2 hours of easy walking around the suburb of Amsterdam. The guide was well informed, patient, and had plenty of information for us to view. The tour included Anne Franks house, her school and the places she played. It included the residences of family her aided her during the war. The tour concluded at a coffee shop where we could relax over a complimentary coffee and ask any further questions of the guide. This tour is highly recommended by those who wish to gain information about the private life of Anne Frank and her family.

This was a very relaxed and intimate tour away from the crowds. You get to see and experience the elements of Anne Frank's life growing up in Amsterdam before her move to the Anne Frank House in the heart of Amsterdam. This tour takes you well away from the very touristy parts of Amsterdam. It is also an opportunity to see another part of Amsterdam in the suburbs and the variety of architectural styles that have evolved in pre and post WWII Amsterdam. Our guide was a delight and very knowledgeable.
