Overview
Discover the stories and secrets of Amsterdam’s most notorious neighborhood on a private tour of the Red Light District. Break away from the curious tourist throngs as a savvy local guide ushers you through hedonistic alleyways and past bars and cafes. Learn the history behind the city’s famously permissive culture and explore hidden spots beyond the glowing red lights and windows.
What to Expect
Amsterdam’s Red Light District lures countless curious tourists to its hedonistic clustering of bars, cafes and scintillating red windows. For locals, it's part of the everyday fabric of the city. Discover the real culture behind this internationally famous destination — apart from the giggles and gawking — on this private 2-hour tour.

Meet your local guide in the Beursplein at the time of your choice, and set off on an insightful walking tour, beginning with the famous Warmoesstraat. See some of the unusual offerings that line one of the city’s oldest streets, including cannabis ‘coffee shops,’ fetish boutiques and gay bars. Learn the origins of the Netherlands’ famously liberal social attitudes, and hear how the legal sex industry is perceived by locals.

Along the way, stroll past the iconic red lights and adult attractions such as the Casa Rosso. Aside from the more mature displays, see other curiosities including a local brewery, Chinatown, the city’s narrowest street and the weigh building of Nieumarkt. Feel free to ask all the questions you like to satisfy your curiosity, and come away with a uniquely Dutch perspective on red-light lifestyles.

Please be advised: Although there is no minimum age, due to the mature content, this tour may not be suitable for children.
