      A truly touching experience. Relive the story of Anne Frank's life on foot; a one and a half hour walking tour in a beautiful neighborhood full of history and sadness, but definitely a must when visiting Amsterdam in my humble opinion. My family and I learned a lot from this tour, thanks also to the availability of the excellent guide who accompanied us on this tour.

      Excellent

      I really enjoyed this- I read the diary 30 years ago as a child and remember the characters well. I visited the annex twice before many years ago ( just showed up, paid at the entrance that was it!) - this time I brought my daughter but could not get tickets. Never mind there is tons to do in Amsterdam..... I booked this trip at the last minute and walked in her footsteps- I am still trying to take it in. I never expected to feel such a connection after so long. Her house, school, where she played, the bookshop and ice cream store.... My feeling is if you also have read and read the book- take a walk around where she lived you will not regret it. It was also great to see the effort made to preserve her memory.
