This Amsterdam walking tour visits the house where Anne Frank and her family hid, which today houses a museum documenting those events. You also enjoy a canal cruise so you can get the essential classic photos of Amsterdam.
Your guide will meet you at the pier and you immediately start your walk into central Amsterdam. Your guide will take you on routes to see many scenic corners of the city, walking through narrow lanes, along charming canals and over scenic bridges.
Your first stop is the house where Ann Frank spent her final years hiding from the Nazi's. You walk through the small annex where the Franks and the van Daan families hid for two years before they were turned over to the Nazi's in 1944. This is one of the most visited sites in Amsterdam and for many people it is an emotionally moving experience.
Today the attic and its surrounding homes have been turned into a museum dedicated to her young life. This is a poignant tour for most visitors that brings the realities of WWII into clearer focus.
After this somber visit you enjoy a canal cruise, which for many people (over 3 million each year) a canal cruise is the best way to see Amsterdam. You cruise past famous houses with their gables and glide under historic bridges as you hear about the Venice of the North.
When your boat cruise is done, you will understand why Amsterdam truly is one of the most charming cities in the world.
At the end of the tour, your guide can walk with you back to the pier or you can stay in the city and get back to the pier on your own.
