      The tour was very interesting and informative. Under Guide Fabian it did an excellent job. He had a great deal of knowledge and it was noticed that he also had a lot of fun teaching visitors about the history of the Jewish population in Amsterdam. Kudos to Fabian and many thanks. Top!! Communication regarding the meeting point via Whatapp and telephone worked very well.

      Chantal made the tour very interesting, you get a good impression of the Jewish community. However, the title suggests that it is mainly about Anne Frank and the tour also goes past the A. Frank Haus and that is not the case. As an alternative, if you have not received tickets for the A. Franjo house, it is not so suitable in my opinion.
