Traveler Tips

  • "Hopefully such small private tours will continue to be allowed, because this was not really a tour - it was an opportunity to experience a very real place with someone who was more than a local friend than a guide." See review

We had a great tour with Tony. Since it was a private tour, no question went unanswered and we could ask anything. Thanks Tony for the great evening.
Really good tour that I would highly recommend.

We never expected this to be so enlightening! We saw a lot of the old and new Red Light District and we are really happy that we booked the tour. Our guide Stan was full of energy and enthusiasm. He left such a good impression we booked another tour with him. This tour was definitely worth it!
Would give it a higher rating if possible!!

This tour was SO worth it! Our tour guide was Tony and he was so knowledgeable. It was a relaxed tour with lots of information about the Red Light District. Tony could answer every question we had and he was always patient with us! We would definitely go again.
Excellent tour!

This tour was exactly what we were looking for. It was a perfect mix of history and the red light district. We have visited the red light district before, but without a guide you will miss most of it. We recommend doing this tour earlier in the day so that it is still active. We forgot the guide his name but he was excellent.

The tour guide called and said he was running late and then was later than he said he would be. One of his stories was way off color and not appreciated.

We loved it, thank you

We read one of the reviews that someone complained about the tour being to pricey. Honestly this tour is worth every penny. It's a great price for a private tour so I think it's really unfair to call it pricey. Besides that the tour is just amazing. Tony is an excellent guide and had so much information to tell us. We have walked the area by our self but missed out on so many sights. The Red Light District is a small area but there are many hidden streets that you won't find without a guide.
Fantastic tour with Tony
, Oct 2021
Fantastic tour of the Red Light District! Tony is an amazing guide who loves the city. This is one of the best tours we have ever done, seriously!! What you will find with Tony is a friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide that knows all the ins and outs of the Red Light District area. This tour was private what made it very personal and an even better experience.
Pricey RLD Tour
, Oct 2021
While the tour was interesting and while some valuable information was provided, I do feel it wasn't worth $107. Additionally, my tour start time changed the day before by one hour (earlier than planned) I had a morning tour and specifically planned my Red Light District tour at 5 pm so I wouldn't have to rush from my first tour. With the change in start time, I ended up having to rush.
Highlight of our visit to Amsterdam!
, Sep 2021
This tour is a MUST if you are planning on visiting the Red Light District area. Our guide Tony was very knowledgeable, entertaining and well informed. He seemed really passionate about the RLD area. The Red Light District is the oldest part of Amsterdam, so there is so much to learn about it. Really interesting!!
A must do in Amsterdam

We highly recommend this tour! The guide Tony showed us the entire red light district and made the tour exciting, interesting and fun. An absolute must do in Amsterdam! :)
