  • "We highly recommend this tour for learning about the intricacies and the culture of the city , it goes above and beyond any standard walking tour!"

This tour is a must do when visiting Amsterdam!! The city was very empty because of the coronacrisis but there were still many girls in the windows. The Red Light District was actually even more fun because it was not too busy! Because of this it was great doing the tour with a guide together. Our guide Tony knew the area very well and had so much knowledge. Thank you so much :)
Tony is the best guide you will ever have!!

This tour was the highlight of our stay in Amsterdam. Our guide Tony is such an amazing guide and person. It felt like doing a tour with a friend. We learned so much about the history, coffeeshops and prostitution The Red Light District is one of these places where you just need to have a guide with you. Of course you can go there on your own, but you will miss so much. This tour is a must do for anyone visiting Amsterdam. Tony you are the best!! Wish you all the best with your company.
Amazing tour! A must-do!

Amazing tour with our guide Stan. The tour was really private meaning no other people were doing the tour. It was like doing a tour with a friend. Because of the corona crisis it was also very quiet in the Red Light District what made it even a better experience. There were not many tourists but everything was already open. There were many girls in the windows. Stan has so much knowledge about the Red Light District and Amsterdam in general. This tour is a must do for anyone visiting the city. It was the highlight of our trip. Just amazing !!
An interesting look at another side of Amsterdam

This was an excellent tour. Our guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We got an excellent overview of the history of both the red light district and the coffee shops. Fascinating. Definitely a tour worth taking...

Our tour was really informative but not boring!! Stan gave us great information that was truly interesting. We felt safe and saw many cool sites! He really knows his Dutch facts! Being a private tour it felt like a friend was showing us around the city. Thanks Stan!
Friendly and Informative Tour. Do not hesitate to Book!

Tony was punctual and gave us an amazing tour of the Red Light District. He was not only friendly but he also was considerate in asking us if there was anything specific we wanted to see or do. My husband and I really enjoy learning about the history, and Tony was very informative. We not only learned about the history but also how it is currently. I highly recommend booking this tour with Tony. You will not be disappointed. He was very reliable, and we really enjoyed it. We would never have learned so much or seen different areas around the red light district if it would not have been with him.
Great tour

This tour was much more than we expected. Our guide gave us a great tour and told interesting historical facts and then went on to explain the history of the district and the coffee houses.

The tour was familiar and the guide was well prepared, but it was not my taste. The other part of Amsterdam was great. I liked the city very much.
Amazing and Authentic
