∎ ∎ ∎ TOUR ONLY FOR 15 PEOPLE ∎ ∎ ∎ ∎ Welcome! My name is Ignacio, Architect and official Tourist Guide of Amsterdam, my city for 16 years and where I have taken thousands of travelers. ∎ History, design, botany and art studies are part of my professional training, which together with my experience teaching classes, creating and taking tours summarizes my resume. ∎ I have the privilege of visiting prominent artists and personalities linked to the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid when they visit Amsterdam. I also provide historical-cultural instruction about the city to the crew of German ships in exchange with the Netherlands. This is part of my work performance that bases my career. ∎ Amsterdam has always been fascinating, beautiful, unique and incomparable and where in this beautiful job of “guiding”, I have the key to open the doors of the city. My HISTORICAL CENTER tour, which includes the Jewish Quarter, can be considered a "very entertaining, high-quality excursion", by the way with architecture, history, art, Dutch society, curiosities and surprises "and for my RED DISTRICT tour, aspects are added very tasty tastes of worldly life from the Middle Ages to today.

Tour description


∎ ∎ ∎ TOUR ONLY FOR 15 PEOPLE ∎ ∎ ∎
It was born at the request of you, my tourists!!!, many delighted with my classic tour "Spectacular Historic Center" want to continue discovering the city with me, their "guide-architect" . Today I fulfill my promise and my T OUR "NEIGHBORHOOD" is now available RED, EROTIC AND HISTORICAL” , a personalized tour , of high quality as always and that complements my traditional tour.

The walk through the RED DISTRICT is a “Box of surprises”, without restrictions in terms of topics, WITH CLEAR AND RESPECTFUL LANGUAGE and without abandoning the CULTURAL profile of the tour, where I embrace the history of the neighborhood, the worldly life of the port of Amsterdam , where the prostitution is housed from the Middle Ages to the present day. Clergymen, rich bourgeois, sailors, German soldiers in World War II, the painter Rembrandt, Mozart, drug addicts and happy girls offering pleasure have walked through the Red Light District.

More than 20 interviews that I did with prostitutes allow me to tell you from first source what happens from the moment the prostitute opens the door of her “brothel-showcase” to the client, how attention is agreed upon with her and the surprises that the clients sometimes get. customers !!! We will see how the way of offering sex has changed over the centuries in this same place. Added to this are coffeeshops, gay life, art, live sex shows, churches for the repentant, drugs, the forbidden, the permitted, cultural festivals and current sex orgies, their characters and inhabitants, etc. It all takes place on a walk through iconic and historical places of the Red Light District in a unique architectural setting in the world, my old city of Amsterdam.


* Since 2019, ALL Amsterdam tour guides can only go around the brothel area through the peripheral streets authorized by the city council.

* * The Municipality of Amsterdam charges the tourist tax € 2 pp, which is paid before starting the tour and has no relation to the value of the event itself.

* Reservations: A max. of 4 people per reservation, fractional reservations of the same group are not accepted, reservations of 5 participants or more must pay the suggested contribution.

2 - WAITING MARGIN : it is 5-7 extra minutes for latecomers. The person who does not notify, or does not arrive after the extra minutes, may have their reservation replaced by other tourists.

2 - MINORS : The tour touches on topics of sex and drugs and by the way it is a sensitive topic for some people. I advise from 15 -16 years old, accompanied by their parents.


1 - Do not hire or register for another activity at least one hour after the end of the tour to have time to arrive at the other activity in a relaxed manner and without schedules clashing.

2- Check the weather forecast, wear clothing suitable for cold or heat, sun protection, and an umbrella or raincoat, if the weather warrants it.

I'll wait for you, Ignacio.

Todo un descubrimiento. El mejor tour de Amsterdam en español con diferencia. Con la mejor información y con parte de ella que sólo te la va a contar él en su tour. Este es uno de esos casos en los que la calidad del tour viene dada por el guía.
