    Is worth repeating!

    It was great! Without exception, we were all more than impressed. It was fun, but also very informative. You have to have a hand in it. We also had a really great leader. Muha was funny and could absolutely answer all questions. Top! There were free nightlife tips for us. NYX has it all. ;O)

    Informative exciting fun tour !! TOP !!

    We were led through the red light district of Amsterdam in a small private group. Since it is very narrow and crowded, a small group is recommended. Our city guide SOPHIE was very knowledgeable, was able to answer all questions and so it was a completely successful and relaxed tour. Greetings from the COSTA girls !!

    Eric was a fantastic tour guide & was able to accommodate preference!

    I took a group of 10 clients to Amsterdam and booked Eric for a private tour of the Red Light District. Since these were customers of mine, I wanted to ensure the tour did not offend any of them. Eric did a great job at accomocating this request, and was a great tour guide.
