I was looking forward for the Corrie ten Boom House and was delighted when I found out that there are tours in English - maybe I had too high expectations but I was very disappointed. Even though the tour guide was passionate about giving the...More

Read the book & saw the film in the ‘70s - wonderful & moving to see the real deal and (for my wife) to actually enter THE hiding place.

Worth the wait for the tour! We feel lucky to have gotten in to this unique historical spot. Brings to life the love that moved the ten Boom family to risk their lives to protect their Jewish neighbors.

Perhaps not as popular as the Anne Frank house, but we liked the Ten Boon tour even better. With only 20 guests allowed at a time, the tour is a very intimate look at the family, their values and what led them to risk their...More

I knew nothing about the Corrie Ten Boom House prior to this visit and you leave this place feeling feeling touched and inspired by a remarkable story. Be forewarned, because the house is so small, they can only take 20 visitors at a time and...More

Definitely worth a visit. It's the anti-Anne Frank house, as it's much more discreet and personal. Don't get me wrong, the Anne Frank house is a must visit, but this home tells a fuller story of those that risked it all to not only hide...More

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
