A bit more about the best Red Light District Tour in town!
Many companies offer a red light district tour but ours, given by either Mark or Lee are different because we really do believe that the most important thing about the tour is to show respect to the women working in the area and not get in the way. A lot of companies say that but don’t actually do it. In our small groups we can actually carry that out!
We speak to many sex workers to hear their stories and find out their views. This way we bring you not just facts but also personal stories that scratch beneath the surface. We present as many different views on the area as possible so that you walk away from the tour with a broader knowledge base from which to form your own views on this iconic corner of Amsterdam.
This 2 hour walking tour covers the history of the area, the legal framework, how you actually negotiate with the women, what they charge, men for women, transgender sex workers, the ‘elite’ streets, big momma alley, live sex shows, peep shows, strip clubs, safe sex, trafficking, police and security, the future and how the area is under threat from gentrification.
We limit the number of people on this tour to 10 as small groups make all the difference in the Red Light District so please don’t just turn up, you need to book.
Our tour takes 2 hours and costs 25 euros per person, pay online when you book.
No children under 15 years of age please.

The Small Print:
Refund policy: If you cancel more than 48 hours before the start of the tour then you will receive a full refund less bank costs, if any. If you cancel within the last 48 hours then you get a refund only if I can re-sell your places.
Group size is 10 people but if 9 have booked then it can be increased to 11 to allow another couple a place on the tour.
The tours are given by Mark or Lee. In the vast majority of cases the tour is given by the guide advertised but very occasionally one of us has to fill in for the other so you might get one of the other 2.
