What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Red Light District Walking Tour

Amsterdam Walking Tour of The Red Light District

The tour takes you to the area that's synonymous with Amsterdam, the Wallen (Red Light District), passing monuments and entering narrow old streets such as the well-known Zeedijk street. In the past it was one of the most dangerous streets in Amsterdam, where sailors could be found searching for local amusement. Nowadays, instead of the shady bars of yester year you'll find lively and welcoming Dutch pubs and restaurants.

The walk includes the entrance to the Museum of Prostitution where you can take a look behind the scenes and listen to the secrets of the women themselves.

Your safety is guaranteed during this excursion into Amsterdam's darker side, as a reliable and trustworthy guide will be accompanying you.

Fun trip. I took my 20yr old daughter with me :-. We learned a lot about the history of this district and were able to see first hand without feeling too silly how it all works. Noting I need to repeat, but am glad I went. Now, I know what all the talk is about.

This tour was truly fantastic! The tour guide we had was a lady who had been doing this tour for 19 years and it showed! The information and facts she was able to provide were fascinating! This was so worth the money! This was a great way to learn about such a big part of Amsterdam's culture and really be able to understand what it's all about! This tour was also well worth the money for the included entry into the museum of Prostitution, it proved very interesting and eye-opening! Definitely a must-do tour!
