Ok, so string me up by a noodle but I continue to think that most tours are overpriced, overcrowded, and a waste of good money. Amsterdam is an easy city to do on your own with a decent guide book (with map) and a "strippenkart" which is a way to buy a group of streetcar tickets at a discount (it is spelled out in any decent guide book). In Amsterdam you will find that nearly everyone speaks English (more than we can say in the USA) and folks are very helpful. To see the Anne Frank house you either walk there or take a streetcar, pay the entrance fee, wait in line with everyone else (including tours) and than see the place. If you get tired, you can always rest at a "brown bar" and order your pot off the menu!
