We met our guide Tony at the B sign in Amsterdam Centraal. Our tour was originally scheduled for 8:00 but was changed to 5:30 because nights tours are no longer allowed. Tony was a wealth of information about the history and workings of the Red Light District. The tour included coffeeshop information and a stop at a coffeeshop. Although we didn't go to the coffeeshop we learned about the attitudes and the restrictions on "soft" drugs. Would definitely recommend Tony's tour!
