An excellent tour through this difficult history. Seeing where it happened and visiting the memorials brings meaning to a part of history I've only experienced in books. Your Guide James was fantastic!

Excellent tour exploring the Jewish quarters of the city. Quite sad but as someone who lives here as an expat it has helped me grow more connected with the cities history. Highly recommend!

James was an amazing guide, kind, courteous - all with a smile - no question was too much. He was very informative and interesting and went well beyond the call of duty.

Guide was excellent. It was truly educational and the story was told well by the guide.

Our guide has great knowledge about Anne frank, the war and the Jews
