Providing the most accurate information about the Red Light District and Dutch culture is the core of our business. We don’t just do this with our tours, we also do it via this online platform. Furthermore we are the only tour company which regularly publishes interviews with active and retired sex-workers. We do this to give people an idea of the personal views of those who normally get drowned out in debates about sex work. We also publish the latest news articles about sex work, drugs, history, politics, technology and other interesting things in the Netherlands. This way people from abroad can stay up-to-date.
On top of all this we also provide overviews on all the best cafes, coffeeshops, restaurants, hotels, museums, clubs and interesting shops in the district. On our FAQ page we also answer all the general questions about the Red Light District. If you have any questions you can always contact us via the Whatsapp contact button located on the right side of your screen.

Honestly I did not expect much of this tour except a wolk around the RLD, but I was totally wrong. Martijn was such a great guide and he showed me around the red light district in a comfortable, informative and very entertaining way. His knowledge of history was impressive and I felt that he really loves to educate and entertain his clients at the same time. I highly recommend this tour to everyone who visit Amsterdam. Thank you Martijn for your stories and your positive and enthusiastic attitude during the whole tour.
