    Manuel did a fantastic job of guiding us through the history of WW II in Amsterdam as would have been experienced by Anne Frank and her family. I thought I had a good understanding of this time period, but I learned so much more from Manuel. I would highly recommend this tour to all history buffs.

    Our tour guide (Sandra) was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. The weather was hot the day we did our tour so we wished it hadn’t been so long and that there would have been seating at some of our stops. Overall, we really enjoyed the tour. We thought we might be going inside the house, but didn’t.

    Libby, Our Tour Guide, was extremely knowledgeable, authentic, kind and funny in her delivery of Amsterdam’s history during WWII and How it directly Affected The Dutch and the Jewish Jews. It was Nice to Hear her Honor and Educate Us on Anne Frank’s journey, along with that of her family. Libby’s Studies in History Aid in her knowledge & Tour. It’s totally Worth 2 hours of your Amsterdam History Visit! Thanks, Libby, France and Crew! Jordan B
