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.
This was excellent. The tour guide was Dutch and really knew the city. He gave a very informative but fun tour which, even in the rain, was very enjoyable.
Why not hear it from one of the "entrepreneurs" themselves? This was a great opportunity to ask whatever you wanted and see for yourself what is behind the "window". An opportunity I am glad I did not miss.
Tour was very imformative and an eye opener to how the industry works, great intro to the area as well a must do tour, if anybody thinks this is sleazy they are very much mistaken
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.
Fascinating experience! It was really interesting to learn about the licensing and laws surrounding the day-to-day life of a sex worker.
Chantall is a perfect guide, confident, sensitive, tolerant.This tour provides a very informative insight to the world behind the windows. Talking to Mariska was really interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour.
