Wow! The tour guide answered any and every question with the utmost truth! She herself has worked in the district! Yes, you can walk through the district yourself, but you won’t have the background knowledge and understanding that our tour guide provided! Thank you so much! From The Florida couple!

Our small group of 4 was met by our tour guide Felicia who provided a first-hand view of the Red Light District and it's sex-worker processes. The tour was scheduled for 1.5hours but the helpful guide stayed for an additional 50mins to answer all our questions. She was open and honest and her insights were stark and informative. An exceptional effort by Felicia.

Had a great time! , Mark , our guide, made sure we stopped in places that had a history to tell, as well as some protection against the rain the kept falling. The way he interacted with the group was really fun and friendly and educational. I do recomend the tour.
