Our guide did a great job of setting up the events. Highlight was you had the ability to use the hiding place. Reality starts to set in regards to what people went through when you were in hiding or trying to keep people safe. Limited...More

Having read about her life, I always wanted to visit. But the visit far exceeded our expectation, as the excellent tour guide explained not only the historical/political situation but the motivation and dynamics of their family life as Christians. This gave a deeper understanding and...More

Reading the book or watching the movie before your trip will make the location come alive, but even if you know nothing about the home, you should make it a priority to visit. We also visited the Anne Frank home and those who read The...More

This small house, still located over a watch store as it was in the 1930s, is an engaging and moving story of resistance to the Nazis. Described in Ms ten Boom's book, The Hiding Place, being here makes the story come to life. English tours...More

This free tour was very informative and interesting. A much lesser known story with just as much significance as the popular Anne Frank story. We enjoyed this much more than the Anne Frank Museum. Make sure you get in line at least half hour before...More

It was humbling to visit this historic house. A brave family lived here who paid a huge price for sheltering Jews during WWII. We noted the time English tours were being held and came back just in time to join one. Very informative and touching.

It's always been a dream of mine to visit Haarlem and see the home of the Ten Boom family. I was surprised when we arrived and I realized how common it looked (for such an uncommon story). One of my children had not yet read...More

I really enjoyed this tour and the ten Boom family story told again in their own home. So surreal to think it was the same place that hid so many people and saved many lives. If you are really keen to see the house, I...More

They have an excellent website that should provide that information. Easy train transport from central station to haarlem though haarlem is a great title city to experience for a night or two.
