WELL WORTH the cost!! You cannot possibly understand this district if you choose to walk through on your own. Our guide, Chantell was fabulous! Growing up in Amsterdam, to her, prostitution is common place and an accepted line of work (as long as it's not your mother, sister, cousin, niece, friend, etc.) She is extremely familiar with the district, it's occupants, and the field, although she has NEVER participated in that line of work. She is funny, pleasant, informative, and obviously loves her job as a tour guide. Mariska, a former sex worker, was also great. She provides insight into the field in the hopes of creating greater understanding for visitors. She has also started a foundation to educate others on the history and current status of sex work in Amsterdam. She established this foundation entirely on her own, and through donations from visitors who appreciate her education efforts.
