    The tour was really great! While we were following in the footsteps of Anne Frank, we were able to learn a lot about the circumstances of the Second World War. However, our guide also told us a lot about Amsterdam itself. The tour lasted almost 3 hours, but at no point was it lengthy. I particularly liked the enthusiasm of our top guide. He always gave you the space to judge the history and events for yourself. I would do the tour again in a heartbeat!

    Wir haben die Anne Frank Tour mit 4 Personen auf deutsch gebucht und alles lief reibungslos. Der Führer Stan (so glaub ich hieß er) war wirklich sehr gut. Die Geschichte über Anne Frank und dem 2. Weltkrieg hat er sehr gut erzählt und sich viel Zeit genommen. 2 Stunden sind für die Tour geplant, die jedoch länger ging. Stan hatte nie den Eindruck vermittelt, dass er es eilig hat, sondern hat sein Job sehr gut gemacht und sich viel Zeit genommen. Die Geschichte hat er sehr gut erzählt und die Stationen auch ausführlich erklärt. Wir sind sehr zufrieden mit der Tour und können sie nur weiterempfehlen.

    We had a very nice guide who could answer all of our questions. There were 5 of us on the bike at the meeting point, because at this point you couldn't come back, he said if we didn't want to do a bike tour. This was very funny and interesting because he could show us more at that time. I also thought it was great that there was no time pressure. The tour is advertised with 2h, but then it went almost 2.5h. I can only recommend it;) Have a lot of fun on the tour
