      Learnt so much of the life of Anne Frank. 2 hours passed by in a blink of an eye. Lots of walking involved but was able to seat whenever one became available. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time beforehand to go toilet and carry a bottle of water as no stopping was possible.

      A rewarding and valuable experience - our knowledgable guide provide lots of local context and history to the Jewish experience during World War II with many anecdotes and fun facts about life in Amsterdam during wartime. I encourage anyone looking for more info about the Frank family, the impact of World War II on the Netherlands, or the history of the Jewish population in Amsterdam to attend.
