What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Red Light District Walking Tour

Amsterdam Walking Tour of The Red Light District

Rather than the shady bars and disreputable clientele of centuries past, Amsterdam’s once-dangerous Red Light District has today found a resurgence as a welcoming destination filled with friendly pubs and restaurants.

Meet your guide in central Amsterdam in the late evening for a walking tour of the Red Light District, known in Dutch as De Wallen. While you stroll through a network of narrow streets, including Zeedijk — once a well-known spot for sailors seeking night amusements — listen as your  guide shares insights about the district.

Start with a visit to the Museum of Prostitution, where you can take a peek behind the scenes of the world’s oldest profession. See displays that include costumes and props used from the past to the present.

During your 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.

A great tour. The subject matter was a little sensitive at times but the guide made it humorous. We both laughed ourselves silly at some of his off color comments and remarks. The Prostitution Museum was a little disappointing but the rest of the tour more than made up for it.
Highly recommended for consenting adults.

If your a bit apprehensive, don't. Our tour guide took care of the group as there were a large number of people in the streets, she was very informative and a very pleasant person.The tour was more of an education in the life of many of the people who work the Red light district. Would highly recommend this tour

This is a part of Amsterdam that you must see on your visit. Our guide was knowledgeable and humorous - we had fun with our group. Good value for money and did not consume huge amounts of time.

Our guide sorry I can't remember his name but a young masters student from Spain, studying geography was excellent! Very informative and friendly. We learned so much and had a lot of fun! The museum of prostitution is slightly disappointing but the rest of the tour was great. We stayed out and went to a few bars in the area afterward and had so much fun!

I would highly recommend this tour because it is very informative of things you wouldn't have known about otherwise. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor! There was a lot of interesting things I learned about it all. The tour may not be necessary to be able to see all of the red light district but it is definitely needed to appreciate at and know all the secrets. My only issue was that there were over 20 of us so it was tough to stay together and get through the crowds. It was also tough to hear what the guide was saying unless you were upfront because the area gets pretty lively at night. Also our guide had to say everything twice, once in English and once in Spanish. While this is nice that they could accommodate everyone, it slowed us down significantly and was kind of annoying when you couldn't understand what he was joking about half of the time.

our guide Chantelle was very good and we felt safe with her at all times. A very enlightening experience which leaves little to the imagination. Highly recommended to adults, even the shy ones!
