Hear about the life of Amsterdam prostitutes and their industry in a respectful manner from a local. See most of the 292 window brothels which are surrounded by beautiful canals & amazing Dutch architecture. Enjoy our fun, interesting & exciting tour, that Fox News and Yahoo listed as one of the wackiest and weirdest out there!
What a lot of people don’t know is that Amsterdam’s Red Light District is actually located in the oldest part of town. The Red Light District Tour Amsterdam starts off at Dam Square, Amsterdam’s main square, and after a short introduction you’ll be walking through what used to be Amsterdam’s most expensive street back in the 16th century. See The Old Church – Amsterdam’s oldest building, world’s first condom shop, ‘coffeeshops‘ and window brothels. Walk past the many scenic Dutch canal houses and through the city’s most narrow alleyway and behold De Waag, which is the former entry gate to the city.

Tour guide Martin was quite a character. He kept us interested all the time with with first hand knowlege of the area and the drug and prostitution culture in Amsterdam. Would recommend this tour
This was the best tour I went on in Amsterdam and learnt a lot from Mark. He was very open and happy to answer any questions. The tour was thorough and felt like it went quite quickly even though it was an hour and a half long. Very highly recommend!
The tour had everything, history, comedy, all the spots I most definitely would not have found by myself. Was one of the highlights of my holidays!
This tour is full of fascinating facts! I joined this tour 2 weeks ago and it was awesome! Even though I’m Dutch, I didn’t know many things of the Red Light District. Our tour guide learned me many things. He also showed us secret alleys and restaurants, which was really cool. Thanks guys!”
I had the opportunity to tour with Elard and found him to be very friendly and attentive. Instead of a scripted tour, it felt like a fun night out with a friend with good knowledge about his own backyard. I have learnt a great deal about Amsterdam, much more than the typical sightseeing would offer.
