We had a ball. It was a great tour. Our tour guide was fabulous and boy did she know her stuff. Going to the prostitute centre was interesting and we are really pleased we did the tour. Loved the area but it has changed a lot since I was there in 1989!
Enlightening tour with the inside scoop from a former prostitute at the PIC. Our guide Chantal was knowledgeable, professional, friendly and fun. Gave a whole new perspective on the industry and new meaning of 'looking through the window' !
Very interesting! Great to get a background on this industry before exploring yourself.
Interview with the former prostitute very enlightening. Overall experience, one I'm sure to remember.
The Red Light District is one of the more interesting areas that I've visited in my travels. Coming from America, which tends to view prostitution in a negative light, it was refreshing to be able to actually speak to a former sex worker about her time in the profession. Our tour guide, Chantal, was fantastic. She's knowledgeable and engaging, and she made an already interesting topic into something that I want to share with my friends. I would recommend this tour to everyone, especially those who view the sex work/prostitution industry in a less than positive manner. Actually speaking to professionals could very possibly change your view on one of the oldest professions in the world.
Very informative, loved the visit to the PIC. There was even an option to go watch a live show at the end of the tour for a discounted price. We didnt go, but we wish would have....When in Amsterdam!
Excellent and guide was great and very informative and helpful. Nothing too much bother.
Fantastic, achieved a greater appreciation for the area and industry thanks to our tour guide than we would have ever got walking through there ourselves.
Well, who wants to go to a Red Light District? The truth is that it exists and one should at least know the back story. As a previous reviewer said that convinced me to take this tour was that it truly is anything but sleezy. This is not a lecture, but a peek at real humanity, knowing the whys, the hows, and the who's. The "sex worker" can be appreciated as being human and were it not for the money, probably wouldn't do it. The tour guide was a pro and the group discussion with the maddam brought home the fascinating world that these women face.
AWESOME AWESOME TOUR! Our guide was incredibly knowlegable and the prostitue information center was incredible. You get to meet the founder and she speaks about laws and rights of workers. You can ask any questions you want and they provide alcohol to loosen everyone up (yes it helps!!). Then the guide takes you through all the streets and explains each kind (even transvestite windows)!! It was the most fascinating tour I have ever been on. You learn dutch history as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
super experience. Very knowledgeable guide and loved the conversation with the former working girl. Highly recommended, because you see those windows with different eyes.
