The guides are volunteers who are giving tours because they really believe in the Ten Boom love. They saved 800 people from this one home right down the street from the German HQ. About 1 Hour tour.

We queued up for the 1:30 English tour and experienced an extremely moving tour where you learn about true integrity and the sacrificing some made during WWII. Highly recommend this AND the Anne Frank House (which you must secure tickets to two months in advance.)

The best way to get from Amsterdam to Haarlem is by train. Not to expensive, not to far and a really enjoyable trip if you like public transportation. You could always rent a car but I never do because I don't want to hassle... More
