The tour was fascinating, and the guide provided not only a wealth of historical knowledge but also several personal anecdotes about her own family's experiences during the war. The tour covers a wide range of information, from the history and experience of the Frank family specifically, to the history of the Amsterdam Jewish community at large, Amsterdam during WWII, the Amsterdam resistance movement, liberation at the end of the war, and interesting facts about Amsterdam's distinctive architecture. Highly recommended!
