Amsterdam’s Red Light District lures countless curious tourists to its hedonistic clustering of bars, cafes and scintillating red windows. For locals, it's part of the everyday fabric of the city. Discover the real culture behind this internationally famous destination — apart from the giggles and gawking — on this private 2-hour tour.

Meet your local guide in the Beursplein at the time of your choice, and set off on an insightful walking tour, beginning with the famous Warmoesstraat. See some of the unusual offerings that line one of the city’s oldest streets, including cannabis ‘coffee shops,’ fetish boutiques and gay bars. Learn the origins of the Netherlands’ famously liberal social attitudes, and hear how the legal sex industry is perceived by locals.

Along the way, stroll past the iconic red lights and adult attractions such as the Casa Rosso. Aside from the more mature displays, see other curiosities including a local brewery, Chinatown, the city’s narrowest street and the weigh building of Nieumarkt. Feel free to ask all the questions you like to satisfy your curiosity, and come away with a uniquely Dutch perspective on red-light lifestyles.

Interesting tour. Tour guide very informative and knew the district well. As the area wasn't busy tour did not take two hours, which was a godsend for my feet. Maybe would be better if the tour was later in the evening. Not everyone's cup of tea, but we all know what the red light district contains, so if it isn't your cup of tea don't visit.

Our tour was interesting and we covered a lot of area, but the actual red light district was only a small part of it. Perhaps because our tour was early 6:00 pm, but it being Saturday night, there were a lot of people in the area and in that way, a little overwhelming. If you are expecting to see window after window of girls or whatever on display, that didn't happen for us. We actually had to do some searching to find any just to fulfill our curiosity. But our guide was great and gave us a lot of good information.

After a total mess/missunderstanding with our timing and the actual tour we thought we purchased, it turned out excellent! Laura was a perfect guide, very knowledgeable about the area. We're not sure what caused the mixup. I will say, Viator had sent me an email about a week before the tour, saying we should get in touch with them to set up a time and meeting location. We were already out of the country, and I was not checking email at that time, so I did not receive their information. We 2 couples thought we purchased an evening walking tour through the Red Light District in Amsterdam, with a group. There are various tours offered for different prices, times and participants! As it turns out, our tour was at noon, and consisted of only the 4 of us! We obviously missed it, since we thought it was in the evening. The local tour company contacted us saying our guide Laura had waited and left. After trying to figure out what happened...we never did figure that out...we were allowed to reschedule the next day at noon. We were very disappointed it was during the day not what we were expecting but as it turns out, the tour was excellent! There is so much more of interest in that area! Absolutely beautiful buildings and so much history. Since it was just the four of us, all questions were answered, and as stated before, Laura was amazing! We were disappointed and annoyed about the mixup...but thoroughly enjoyed the day! This is our third tour through Viator in different cities in Europe, and all 3 have been excellent! Definitely will use again. Thank you Viator.

This was a great tour to learn more about the Red Light District and to hear how the locals live in the area. It gave me a new perspective on the district. Our guide Laura Maria was the perfect host to show us around, we had a lot of laughs with her great energy and love for the city.
