Our guide (I can’t remember his name) was fantastic and the information is just so amazing. There may be some bad weather, but other than that, when going to Amsterdam, make sure to use this company and guide!! As well as that, we had a personal tour guide the next day, and this was cheaper and we had the same amount of enjoyment and the atmosphere was lovely and friendly!

Raoul was a wonderful tour guide and had a great pace! You could tell he was passionate about the subject and shared everything by memory! I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone trying to have a great feel for Amsterdam (culture, food, liberal culture, etc) & to learn more about the history of Anne Frank.

This tour was an excellent way to learn about the Jewish quarter and the Frank's family story. Vincent was a great tour guide did who was able to appropriately weave humor and new insights into a relatively well-known story. Would highly recommend to all, especially if you're looking for an interesting way to go from the Jewish quarter over to the Anne Frank Museum on the other side of the city.
