In a small group, the very friendly guide Andre led us through the red light district. We have learned a lot about the red light environment and the background. The new and the old red light district were on our tour. We saw a lot and are happy to have booked the tour. Bring Amsterdam a bit closer to a tourist. A very interesting tour, highly recommended !!

Entertaining and very informative

We took the tour as a group and just wanted to find out more about the red light district and its history. Our guide responded perfectly to our questions and conveyed the whole thing with funny anecdotes. Visiting a bakery and the popular Dutch fast food chain was also interesting, so at the latest we had the opportunity to try something typical Dutch. I can only recommend everyone to invest a few euros for it. We also had the opportunity to visit a peep show, which was interesting. At the end of the tour, we were able to ask for a few tips about the coffee shop. I can only recommend everyone to do the tour at the beginning of the visit to Amsterdam, if only because of the tips mentioned last ;-) But otherwise we would have a lot of fun during the tour and didn't notice how quickly the time passed.

The tour was really super interesting and definitely worth the money. In addition to detailed information on the red light district and the activities of sex workers, historical background information on Amsterdam was also included. We were allowed to try Stroopwafels and saw streets and details that we would not have paid attention to otherwise. At the end of the tour there were optional tips for visiting the coffee shop. We enjoyed it very much, thanks again to the guide
