      My husband and I had a great time on the red light district tour and would definitely recommend doing this particular tour. Our tourguide was very knowledgeable, kind and funny. It was very interesting to learn some facts about prostitution in general as well as the perspective of someone who had been working in this industry for 10 years.

      We had such an incredible tour!! If you are on the fence about booking, do not miss it. She is the most interesting and amazing woman. Our tour with her was the highlight of our time in Amsterdam. We had so many questions about some sensitive subjects and she was able to answer all of them with depth and some sense of humor. You will leave better understanding of the inner workings and outer political forces on the sex work industry in Amsterdam. She is a truly incredible person and getting to spend time with her was a privilege we are all so grateful for!!!

      It was a unique experience! There were only three people in my group which opened a way to ask questions throughout the whole tour even of an intimate kind. The guide was very open, kind and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend to anyone who want a deeper insight into the Red light district!
