Description of this Red Light District Tour:

They started here in the 1960’s. Louise first and Martine followed two years later.

They’ve retired some years ago and would love to share their fascinating stories with the world.

Customer review:
“We took a tour of the red light district and met the lovely twins “The Fokkens”….We met our guide on dam square and went into the red light district, stopped off in a few tourist spots, seen some of the girls working and had a history lesson from Elard, after this we went to the dolls museum which was strange but good fun. A few glasses of wine & a good natter plus photos with the twins we headed off to enjoy the rest of the night. Great if your looking for an activity for a hen party.”
