      My class of 20 students was divided into two groups, so there were two guides who accompanied us, both extremely knowledgeable and engaging. The path allowed us to understand not only the history of the Nazi invasion of Holland, the history of the Frank family and the Jewish community, but also peculiar aspects of Dutch culture. Experience to recommend. Be careful to precisely define the times of the visit as there was probably a communication error between the server and the guide. Despite this problem, which was resolved quickly and professionally, the overall judgment remains excellent.

      After an early flight to Amsterdam, we checked in to our lodgings, quickly grabbed lunch and took the tram to our meeting point. Given that we had been awake since about 2:30 that morning, I assumed our group of 21 students were going to resent my decision in booking a 2-hour Anne Frank/WW II walking tour of Amsterdam. I could not have been more incorrect. We were greeted by two of the warmest smiles you could imagine. Our group was then split into two and we were off. Our guides kept us entertained with enlightening information, safe from the whizzing trams and bikers and to top it off, we had a serendipitous encounter with an amazing Holocaust survivor that offered to share her story with us. To say the least, it was an unforgettable experience and our group will be forever grateful! I highly recommend this tour as the first activity any school group books in the city. Thank you!

      Travel guide was a local young man who knew a lot about Amsterdam, Dutch culture and extensive knowledge. Very interesting and also with many correct nuances which made it a very 'open' experience. Real enrichment & different approach to get to know this top city
