Tour description

ūüĎČ - For three years it has been forbidden for tours to pass through the windows of the Red Light District where the sex workers are. The tour borders them and shares a map to walk each and every one of the things that are explained.



Do you dare to discover the most controversial neighborhood in Europe? Do you want to know the reality of prostitution in the Netherlands? In this Free Tour we will learn about the history of the Red Light District in Amsterdam, how it works, what it offers, the mafias , which shows are the best known, unique pieces of art and much more.

Enter the red light with all the information you need, in a respectful and relaxed environment . There are no unanswered questions on this tour. All the necessary information so that you can explore it knowing what you have in front of you.

Some of the topics we will talk about are:

  • Historical tour of the relationship between the city and prostitution.
  • La Condomerie , the world's first specialty condom store
  • how windows work
  • The gay area of the Red Light District
  • The district nursery.
  • main monuments
  • The hottest shows
  • Most impressive clubs
  • The reality of legalized prostitution: white slavery, taxes, mafias and individual work decisions


The Red Light District is an experience that leaves no one indifferent and, therefore, it is absolutely essential. If you are interested in knowing this reality and forming your own opinion, do not hesitate to come with me on this tour. I guarantee you to have a great time and learn together about a way of dealing with the reality of prostitution that does not exist in our countries. I wait for you!

La explicaci√≥n del tour la hizo genial, pero perdi√≥ su profesionalidad cuando le fuimos a pagar y nos cuestion√≥ los dos dias lo que √≠bamos a pagarle. Cada uno viaja como puede y en base a su bolsillo, yo no tengo la culpa de que √©l haya decidido vivir en un pa√≠s caro como es Amsterdam, le pagu√© lo que se suele pagar en todas las ciudades y encima me ped√≠a que le diese m√°s, que eso era poco. T√ļ no sabes la situaci√≥n econ√≥mica y laboral que estoy viviendo como para cuestionarme algo tan personal como es el dinero.

Es un free tour, que como indica la palabra, tour gratis. Lógicamente, hay que valorar el trabajo de los demás, por lo que al final de estos tours las personas muestran una aportación económica dependiendo de lo que les haya gustado el tour, el guía, y lo que puedan aportar. Hay personas que por eso no pueden aportar mucho y precisamente por eso van a FREE TOUR. El guía que nos tocó, se presentó diciendo que teníamos que pagar, y siguió su presentación diciendo cuánto deberíamos aportar al finalizar el tour. Sinceramente no me parece de recibo, ya que esta no es la actividad. Utilizó expresiones inadecuadas para el barrio en el que estábamos y que creo que faltan totalmente al respeto. Terminó el tour devolviendo billetes a una familia y diciéndoles que esa cantidad era muy poco y que como no tenían más efectivo les cobraba con tarjeta. Sinceramente creo que esto esta fuera de contexto, porque por algo se llama free tour. En fin, una pena.

Pésima atención. Llegamos 5 minutos tarde y no nos dejó hacer el tour por "no avisar" cuando había confirmado días antes vía wtsp que iríamos. Al contactar al wtsp me respondieron de mala forma y fue para peor. Nunca me había pasado con guru. No lo recomiendo

El tour está genial y la información dada es perfecta. El unico punto negativo es que en algun mensaje y recordado por el guia hablan d la cantidad aconsejable mínima a pagar, lo cual hace perder la esencia de un free tour y te sientes un poco preionado a dar esa cantidad, lo valga o no, no es la esencia de un frree tour. Me reitero el tou igualmente es fantástico.

Teníamos el tour a las 18:00, llegamos a las 17:58 porque nos perdimos y el guía (Dani) nos dijo que ya no no podía llevarnos, cuando había gente SIN RESERVA (cosa que me parece lamentable). Tuvimos la suerte de que hubo un tour a y cuarto y la chica muy amable (Florencia) nos llevó. El tour en general merece la pena.
