A must do tour while in Amsterdam. Daphne was amazing. A lovely knowledgeable lady who showed us what we were interested in which wasn and #39;t all about the workers in the red light district. We looked at architecture and got a real feel for how life used to be. Thank you we loved it.

We had trouble at first finding where we were to meet the guide. Once we were on the tour it was great and the guide was very informative! More signs are needed to let people know where the aviator Guides are.

Guide and tour were outstanding . She had the challenge of taking us around town on Gay Pride day, which, brought some 300,000 partiers to the city. High light of our Baltic cruise.

We found this tour very interesting, the guide was great and really knew the area and the history of the place, he explained fully how it all worked, it felt like an intimate glance into a completely different world. The Museum of Prostitution was also very enlightening it certainly put a different perspective on the girls who work in this area, not an easy job by any means. If you do this tour you will come away well informed about a twilight world that most of us will not often come into contact with.

We had a private tour for 8. Our guide was great. She was humorous and informative. Afterwards, we were treated to an unexpected beverage at a local pub. You don't get the feel for this type of lifestyle if you just walk around in the daytime. The night tour really lets you sense the culture. As we were very late arriving, due to the hotel giving us wrong directions, we were pleasantly surprised that our guide waited for us for almost a half hour. At no time did we feel rushed to complete the tour.
