Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Red Light District Walking Tour

Amsterdam Walking Tour of The Red Light District

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.

Highly recommend this walking tour. We had Dan as a guide and he was very easy to follow and provided a lot of information. I learned many things about the red light district and prostitution in Amsterdam. The red light district is not as easy to find as I envisioned and it was nice to have the guide to show the different parts of the district and where each was.

This is a must do for Amsterdam - it gives a different insight to the night world and the guide we had was great and informative. The only disadvantage was due to the noise, it was super hard to hear the guide - they need to invest in whispers so everyone can hear. If you want to see the nightlife, this is a great tour.

Friendly and knowledgable guide for this tour. It's a great overview of the district if you are just arriving to Amsterdam. Highly recommended tour for the price. Bundle up, take an umbrella, and wear comfortable shoes!

This tour was the first one to tick off on our list of 25 tours that we had booked for our Grand tour of Europe! And we are glad that it was a fantastic start.
At the meeting point office of the tour provider, we registered ourselves and waited to be called out by our guide. Since this tour was scheduled at night, most of us were already tired after a long day of sight seeing. In my opinion, some extra space in the waiting area would be nice or better, if they could space out the meeting times to avoid the jam packed room!t
The tour itself was amazing, we were put into groups country wise so we ended up with a group of aussies! Nice way to do it as the guide can pass subtle jokes peculiar to the country!
Took us through the major alleyways and explained the history of the red light district and the sorts! Tour also included an entrance ticket to the Sex Museum which we could use at a later date.
Great way to explore the area, especially if you are not used to going to these kind of places and don't know what's involved!
thumbs up from us!
