Overview

Anne's famous diary ends a few days before she, and the others, were suddenly arrested and put on transport, ultimately to her death.

In a one-day tour outside Amsterdam we will take you to Camp Westerbork, the transit camp from where Anne Frank, and more than a 100.000 Jewish people with her were sent to Auschwitz and other camps. Not many would return.

By following her footsteps, we will learn about many more people, places and events to tell the story of the German occupation of the Netherlands during World War 2.

By visiting the sites and telling the stories of normal people under extreme circumstances we will bring the time of the war closer to home. With the use of authentic photos and videos, and by explaining the events from all perspectives, we will find out about the motives of the people involved, and we will ultimately ask the question:

Could this happen again in our time?

We booked this tour with Martin back in October and were very pleased. The entire process was easy and hassle-free. Martin was top notch, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Martin contacted us right after we booked the door, and was extremely responsive to emails with questions and requests. Unfortunately, we had to request a slight change the tour itinerary because we were sick but Martin was very understanding and easy to work with.

As the other reviewer mentioned, Martin was filled with information and very interested in the subject matter. The visit to Camp Westerbork itself was indescribable and moving. Martin provided background information on the camp and the Franks and really added to the experience.
We also visited the neighborhood and house where the Franks lived before they went into hiding. We even saw the bookshop when Mr. Frank purchased Anne’s red and white checkered diary.
It was a full day and unforgettable. If you are interested in learning more about Anne and her family, we highly recommend this trip. I also suggest visiting the Anne Frank house because this tour will supplement that very well. Thank you Martin for an amazing experience.

Martin was so full of information and so passionate about this tour that you really feel a part of the history while being there. He takes you to see the house that Anne lived in before going into hiding. We saw lots of sights that other tours do not show you. If you only go on one tour while in Holland consider this one, you will not be disappointed.
