    • On Fridays and Saturdays the Red Light District can get very crowded.
    • Due to government regulations some areas of the Red Light District can only be entered with a maximum of 4 people. If your group is bigger than that, you will either be split into smaller groups or you will only visit parts of the Red Light District. However, the content of the tour remains the same.

    The tour was great and informative! Our guide Lily was great and you could tell that she really dealt with the topic! I think the price of 165 euros for 5 people for 90 minutes is a bit excessive
