Good tour of RLD and Coffee shops - not really a good tour!
Andrea_G
, Aug 2022
It was really good to get the overview of the RLD and it’s origins as well as how it works today. It was interspersed with other information about the city, significant buildings and places too. Our tour guide was really friendly and knowledgeable and we did enjoy the tour. Not sure about the ‘food’ element of this tour - it definitely didn’t feel like a good tour. We got Dutch sausage which was fine and the cones of chips and then at the end we were given a pack of waffles, which although we’re very nice, didn’t feel part of the ‘tour’. If you want an introduction to the Red Light District and Coffee shops, with a really friendly tour guide then this is the one for you :-)

Fun food experience. Tastes of various influences in Amsterdam. Nice history tour. Not a lot in the red light district but again an interesting history tour on how the red light district came into existence. Easy to walk around the district after the tour. May be more "interesting" the later the tour. Enjoy!!

Recommended! Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Catherine! Friendly, informed and clear, we enjoyed listening to bits of history and understanding the context of the district with Our guide. It wouldn’t have been the same had we wondered around solo with the context.

We were a party of 6 and Craig was an excellent tour guide! He was very informative and entertaining, had a great sense of humor. More touring than food FYI. We learned a lot and saw a lot, would definitely recommend!

Not a food tour, but adeqUate for walking tour of Amsterdam red light
Cristina_M

So the tour guide knowledge was good but this is in no way a food tour. Food stops were dismal with the last 2 cancelled bc they were closed. So enjoy the info on Amsterdam, the redlight district but definitely should not be advertise this as food tour.

Great overview of the history and current day life in the Red Light District!
Shana_K
, Jun 2022
This was a great tour with all the history and context of the Red Light district area! Our guide was quite informative and gave us an intro to the start of prostitution in Amsterdam, a review of the windows, the pricing, how the women are protected, the coffee shops (illegal but tolerated), and even the public toilets having a sex theme. We did not come to partake in all the activities , just to learn so maybe we are not the average tourist. As we were also on a food tour, we got to try Dutch fries with mayonnaise, a peanut sauce, and a curry sauce and a croquette from a hot vending shop so would recommend to anyone who wants to see the Red Light district and get acquainted with Dutch culture but maybe is a little shy and wants a guide.

Possibly Better Tour Available

The tour guide, Max, provided an excellent walk with lots of history. The food part consisted of a waffle and french fries. Considering all, I don't think it is worth the price paid.

Great tour, our guide was very knowledgeable. Disappointed with the food side of it as we only had two small things - a fried piece of food and a crepe - could have been better in that aspect but the tour itself is definietly recommended.

We had a very young, fast talking tour guide. He knew his business, or rather the business in the District.

A unique, fun way to see the other side of Amsterdam. Our tour guide was fantastic, energetic and with a good sense of humour. He even treated us to some waffles and croquettes which were both delicious! We truly enjoyed our 2 hours in this area. It is not 'creepy like a typical red light district. The area is well-lit and there are so many tourists male and female all over. Generally, a safe place to walk around. Lots of walking involved though so be warned.

Excellent tour. There were only the two of us on the tour. Tony, our tour guide, was excellent!! Very flexible in what we wanted to see and he took time to answer our questions.
