Itinerary

Meet your guide and group of fellow adventurers in central Amsterdam's Dam Square. After a short orientation, set off on foot through the famous Red Light District for a thorough understanding of the Dutch people's more liberal, yet regulated, approach to many acts and substances criminalized in other countries, such as sex work and marijuana. Along the walk, you'll learn the history of the neighborhood and stop by highlights that many tours miss, avoiding some of the awkwardness of exploring the area on your own. 

Take in the neighborhood's vibe as you pass the legendary coffee shops, nightlife hot spots, and red-lit windows with services on offer. Your guide will talk at length about the origins, history, and modern-day iterations of the district and what it means to Amsterdam's culture as a whole. Highlights include the Hangover Information Center, the Museum of Prostitution, the world's first condom shop, and some of the city's most popular coffee shops.

At the conclusion of your tour, you can get pointers on where to explore further on your own from your guide.

Red light tour

We loved this tour. We would never know about the areas that we were taken into, nor learned what we did. Very informative tour.

Great way to explore the RLD

Enjoyed a fabulous and informative visit to the red light district with guide Arthur. He was funny and really informative. All in all a perfect way for a solo traveller to explore the area and get information that wouldn't otherwise be known. Highly recommended.

Good Morning! The tour ends in the alleys of the Quarter and you can return with the guide back to Dam Square or walk around freely in the district.
