    10/10 the best tour I have ever had! Had so much fun and learned so much about the beautiful city of Amsterdam’s red light district! The guide was so good we ended up staying a good hour after the tour and talking to him more about the city! He gave us amazing food recommendations and would take the tour again just to see him.

    The tour itself is very good because they explain the Red Light District and it is a completely different perspective from the rest of the city. As points to improve: - they delayed the tour for half an hour with little notice to join another tour - the guide Stan (very nice) spoke very fair Spanish. In his favor, to say that he did everything on his part to explain everything and that it is positive to have someone national who knows better the history of an area like this

    We have experienced the tour as very pleasant and very informative. the guide knew a lot about the area and its "residents". He has shown and described every characteristic part. He has told us the history over the years. But what struck us most is that he described this with great respect. In short, we have experienced this excursion as very valuable. We would not have wanted to miss him during our visit to Amsterdam.
