Dive Into the city’s most famous area on our Amsterdam Red Light District Tour

No visit to Amsterdam would be complete without touring the city’s most infamous neighborhood – the Red Light District.

We respect the area and the sex workers because we have small groups of 4 max and we slip through discretely, without being in the way of the women trying to do their job. This tour is fun and frank. For Mark and Lee, both ardent liberal feminists, the most vital thing about the area is that the rights of the sex-workers are respected.

We show you around this iconic corner of Amsterdam and give you a real insider’s view on how it all works. We do this discreetly and safely and you will walk away having learned about aspects of the area that you never knew existed.

Discover what this neighborhood is all about with That Dam Guide.

The 15 year age limit:

A word about the age restriction… The tour is very graphic in parts with strange sex toys and porn videos in shop windows. We talk about a lot of crazy stuff and intimate things and make some pretty bawdy jokes, in the best possible taste. I don’t want to have to trim info because there are minors on board. Even if the parents of the kids are fine with it, it might make other people on the tour feel uncomfortable. For all these reasons I figured 15 years was a good compromise. I am happy to give private tours of the area for families regardless of the age of the children, in that case, I’d bow to parental wishes.
