Choose from several daily departure options, and meet your private guide near Amsterdam’s Central Station. Begin with a stroll through the famous Red Light District, the center of the city’s legal prostitution industry that draws countless curious tourists but is often misunderstood. See the famous red windows and one of the world’s first condom shops while your guide explains the social and political background behind sex work and the marijuana coffee shop culture in Amsterdam.

Continue on to the charming and historic Jordaan district, a formerly working-class neighborhood that’s now home to trendy galleries, cafes, and shops tucked among its labyrinth-like streets. See the famous Anne Frank House and West Church, and learn about the Frank family’s captivating story. Relax and get a local Dutch lunch (own expense) at the Rembrandtplein, named for its most famous former resident, or the lively Leidseplein.

Next, head to the De Pijp district to wander among the diverse street stalls and vendors of the Albert-Cuyp Market, the largest outdoor market in the Netherlands where you can pick up anything from bargain shoes and accessories to local produce or a fresh-baked stroopwafel. Stroll past a few more sights including the 14-century convent complex of the Begijnhof and the city’s old Jewish quarter before concluding the 5-hour tour at Dam Square or another central location.

Don’t be shy w the tour guy.

This was my 3rd tour during my 2.5 day Amsterdam stay. I made a rookie mistake and didn’t check his credentials at the designated meeting spot (random hotel). This didn’t un nerve me until 1/4 of the way through - when I realized he could be any body leading me through the small desolate alley ways. Alas.. That is on me. But He couldn’t tell me when city hall was built, yet was eager to show me his favorite sex shop. He told me to smile at the sex workers. He waved and smiled at them. He talked at length about the glories of sex work. Suggested a condom I might get for my husband…. asked if I was until hallucinogens… It was just too much for me. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy many aspects of the tour - except that, 2 days later, I’m realizing I did not like the tour. And it costs me $200 more than I had paid for any tour. Live and learn. I should have stopped immediately and asked for credentials. I should have spoken up 10min into the Red Light District. Shoulda Woulda Coulda

We are really sorry that you did not enjoy the tour. I usually do the tours myself but unfortunately I was sick that day. However our guide Charlie is a great guide as well and he was really surprised by your review. The tour you booked is about the Red Light District so most people that book this tour are really interested about the area and history of sex work. Since it is a private tour everything is very flexible and if you wanted to skip the Red Light District area that would have been no problem. Unfortunately to Charlie you came across as very interested and asked loads of questions.

I truly enjoyed this tour. Tony was an awesome guide, and was very flexible. We had to stop back at our hotel prior to starting because we had packages to drop off, and he didn’t blink. Highly recommend this tour if you are in Amsterdam. Bring you walking shoes though!
