We had a great time on this tour, this is a must do in Amsterdam. Our guide was excellent an introduced to things we did not know. I would highly recommend this tour just for the understanding of the district.
The dozen of us had a good time led by Mark, who had first hand knowledge of the District, having met his wife there. A cold night on some crowded streets but saw many good aspects o f the neighborhood. Learned so much more than if I went on my own. Salty but made us feel safe and well cared for.
We went on a Saturday night so there were a lot of people can’t imagine what it would be like during high season.Our guide was very knowledgeable and had such enthusiasm for his hometown. He explained how the girls are unionized, safe, get a pension and pay taxes.Worth doing, wish the group was a bit smaller but otherwise ok.
The tour was an eye opener and very good, except for the unpredictable rain. The group could have been smaller. Saturday nights, the streets are mobbed, so dodging people and rain made the experience stressful, but the overall experience was very good. I would strongly recommend it.
Having been on about 8 tours the past months, Martin was definitely one of the best tour guides I had. He was energetic, knowledgeable, proud of his hometown, and his enthusiasm was palpable. It was a great learning experience for me and I had no idea how successful Amsterdam has been in educating it's residents when it comes to sex/drugs and the like. Definitely would recommend this tour for those looking for something different. Thanks again Martin!
We really enjoyed this tour. We had visited before, but had a million questions and really didn't know what we were seeing. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained to us the ins and outs of the redlight district. The tour was small so that made the experience more intimate . I highly recommend if you want to have a better understanding of the area.
