Eric was our tour guide and he made the experience a 10/10. He was funny, informative and gave us a great introduction to Amsterdam. I would recommend you do this on your first day - it gave us a great insight on the best places to visit, smoking culture and what’s best to smoke, as well as the history of the red light district. I came away from the tour more knowledgable and happy. If it weren’t for our amazing tour guide, we wouldn’t have had this experience, make sure to tip!

The tour guide (Anni) was absolutely amazing, funny and was very informative. The tour itself is amazing - I would recommend an evening tour instead as we didn’t see many of women in the windows. There is an option to have a peep show as well and to try coffee with something extra.

Our initially planned tour never ran as the guide failed to show up. Despite this, I rank this 5 stars specifically due to our second guide Erik who got in touch shortly after offering us an alternative time wih him the next evening. We had such a great time with him and the group, despite pouring rain. I would recommend an evening tour with Erik to everyone!
