    Excellent tour. David the your guide (from Canada) living in Amsterdam, a knowledgeable historian and excellent story teller. Covered a lot of information that we wouldn't know otherwise. He well explained the driving stories behind the Red light district, the religious, economic and legislative factors are interesting to learn and comprehend the reasons behind it. Unfortunately as of April 1st, 2020, the City of Amsterdam has banned to guided tours to the Red Light District.

    Great tour of the red light district, drug culture and the history and current liberal views of Amsterdam. Not for the easily offended. Martin was an open book and very honest about the red light district and drug use in Amsterdam. Not your average tour, very entertaining. Would definitely recommend.

    Maarten was our guide. Very knowledgeable and told it to you straight. Highly recommended tour, just be aware it’s not for kids or the offended in sex discussions

    We had a great time on our tour. Our guide (unfortunately, forgot his name), was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. Looking forward to our next visit.

    We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was from Amsterdam and he knew a lot about the Red Light district and the Sex Workers. His wife is a Sex Worker. Sounds strange, but in their minds it's just a job. Our group size was not too large. We learned a lot on this tour.

    Martin was a great tour guide. He gave it to us straight with his own experiences and not the pg-13 version. I would recommend him to anyone and we even went to get a drink with him after. Made our stay in Amsterdam one to remember!
