  • "Hopefully such small private tours will continue to be allowed, because this was not really a tour - it was an opportunity to experience a very real place with someone who was more than a local friend than a guide." See review

Red light district tour

We enjoyed this tour and felt that Catherine (I believe that is her name) did a great job showing us the sights and explaining the history behind the red light district. She was from the US so was easy to understand. We learned a lot and had a great time. I can’t say anything about the coffee shop because we didn’t go (our choice). If you are curious about the red light district, this tour is for you.

The history of the Old City was fascinating.

The tour operator did not do a particularly good job of communicating in advance (i.e. confirmation, guide contact information, etc.), but the guide was extraordinarily knowledgeable about the history and development of the Old City section and was very personable.

Our guide Max was fantastic. He is so personable and down to Earth. He guided my friend and I through the Red Light District, and pointed out a lot of things we would've never known. We did the late tour that started at 10pm. He was very prompt. Lots of knowledge gained and lots of laughs had. Thanks so much, Max!

We had a great time! We were able to have a completely private tour, our guide did a wonderful job explaining the history of the buildings and how those are contrasted with Amsterdam’s progressive beliefs. Great tour.

This tour is a must do for anyone visiting Amsterdam. Our guide Catherine made it an amazing tour and we highly recommend her!! She is originally from the United States what made the communication very easy. Walking through the Red Light District by yourself you will miss so many hidden gems. Catherine you are the best and we hope to see you again on our next visit. Highly recommended

We hardly spent 10mins in the red light district and coffee shop tour. Rest of the time was shown churches. I would have really asked for a refund if it was possible.

I was part of a small group and wanted more of a historical perspective. Our tour guide Max accommodated this request and have a lot of history of the area. He is good at adjusting to the type of experience you are seeking.

We were a multiage group ranging from 18 to 44. I initially thought the tour might be a bit awkward for the teens in our small group but our energetic guide immediately but everyone at ease. From historical information to present day details - this tour included it all. Our guide a local and extremely knowledgeable. Beyond covering tour specific topics, he also shared his passion for the city of Amsterdam!

Red Light District private tour
Janice_B
, Jun 2022
I wasn’t sure what to expect on this tour. Katherine was fantastic. I am traveling with 2 of my friends who decided not to go because of the title of the tour. I was by myself on this private tour. It was much more than just information about the red light district. Katherine provided a lot of background to the city of Amsterdam primarily focusing on that section of the city. When I returned to the hotel my friends were disappointed that they hadn’t gone too.
