Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour shares the history of the area's sex trade in a welcoming environment perfect for solo travelers wary about exploring on their own. At the Museum of Prostitution, check out the second-story red-light window, which garners glances from pedestrians outside.
Meet your guide in central Amsterdam for an evening walking tour of Amsterdam’s Red Light District, known as De Wallen in Dutch.
You’ll start with a visit to the Museum of Prostitution, where you can peek behind the scenes of the world’s oldest profession. See displays that include costumes and props used from past to present.
Strolling with your guide through a network of narrow streets, including Zeedijk — a once well-known spot for sailors seeking night amusements — you’ll learn that the shady bars and disreputable clientele are long gone from what was once a dangerous area.
You’ll pass through a welcoming destination filled with plenty of friendly pubs and restaurants, alongside strip clubs, sex shops, and coffee shops.
During the 2-hour tour, have a look at the exteriors of some 300 “kamers,” or cabins, where you might catch a glimpse behind glass windows illuminated with red lights.

Very Interesting to see and hear the history of the district. However, some of the girls looked very bored and others were very sexy.

We didn't end up doing this tour as it was pouring rain and we had a 20 minute walk from our accommodation.

This walking tour was very informative and great way to see the red light distruct, to understand the history and the way of working.

The biggest problem is numerous tours going on at same time. Easy to lose guide if not holding a marker.

It was interesting to see how the other people live!! Amsterdam is a very lovely city, a little too progressive for me, but I enjoyed the visit and will return..

The tour guide was talking too much more than showing us the red light district and spent the first hour on the main entrance .Afterwards , he was too fast that we didn’t enjoy the tour and also didn’t go deep inside the district.It was just highlight for the district .

Our tour Guide was very good and the tour was very interesting. Although at the end we could not go into the Red Light Museum because of electrical problems.
