Amsterdam Audio Tours App

New GPS-Guided App: Amsterdam Audio Tours

Proudly we present our brand-new app that allows people to experience a GPS-guided tour in the Red Light District independently, cheaply and at any time of the day. We developed an unique audio tour, where the user is accompanied by a local guide who introduces the listener to 22 experts.

How it all started

In 2014, we came up with the idea to create Amsterdam Audio Tours. We thought: How cool would it be if people could experience an audio tour in the Red Light District (or at home) in which experts tell the stories themselves? In the last few years we learned a lot about the Red Light District and we met a lot of interesting people. People with different backgrounds and different expertises. During our walking tours, our local guides often share their knowledge with tourists.

We wanted to create something in which these experts could share there own stories directly to Amsterdam-visitors. Real stories, from the best experts! This is why we created the app Amsterdam Audio Tours. It contains a super interesting audio tour with 22 specialists who share their knowledge that is in some way connected with Amsterdam.



Virtual Audio Guide and 22 Experts

Amsterdam Audio Tours is hosted by virtual local guide Sophie who is born and raised in the Netherlands. She will show you around in Amsterdam’s Red Light District, tell you everything you need to know and she’ll introduce you to all the best experts. In our brand-new Amsterdam Audio tour, these experts share their knowledge with you so that you really get to know the famous Red Light District.
