One of the best things about Amsterdam is how ‘gezellig’ people are – how people try to make every social situation, even with strangers, as friendly and convivial as possible. We do that in all our tours, even with tours with such difficult stories as the Holocaust. You will most likely make connections on our tours with other tour-goers, which can help make looking at the unbearable bearable. Come learn and enjoy with us!

Tour description

Buckle up! because this is not your typical sightseeing tour.

First, let's set the stage.

This place isn't just about the lively nightlife, it's a historic part of Amsterdam with stories around every corner.

As we zigzag through the district, your guide, a local with a wealth of anecdotes, points out hidden gems you could easily miss without the help of an expert.

From secret bars to unique stores, each place has its own story. But what makes this trip really special is the laughter and conviviality.

Imagine a group of travel enthusiasts, each from different corners of the world. All united by a thirst for adventure and new experiences. The energy is contagious, and each new discovery triggers a surge of excitement.

As night falls, you may find yourself at a local diner, sharing stories and dishes. These are the moments. Good food, great company and the backdrop of an illuminated city that stay with you long after the trip is over.

So, if you're in the mood for an adventure that's as educational as it is stimulating, Friendly Walking Tours' Amsterdam Red Light District tour awaits. Don't just explore, immerse yourself with us in experiences that defy everyday perspective.

After all, isn't that what travel is all about?

Starting at St. Nicholas Basilica, in front of Centraal Station and ending at Dam Square itself, your friendly guide will provide you with all the details you need to make the most of your experience.

The tour was very informative. There were many interesting details presented with great tact and at the same time in a fun and humorous way. The time flew by unnoticed, and the tour left good memories.

Excelente guía, recorrimos varios lugares de la ciudad de Amsterdam y sobre todo, con todo el contenido histórico y cultural. Hicimos otro tour por la ciudad, pero este fue muchísimo mejor. Muy recomendable.

Extremely competent and fun guide. In addition to being bilingual. It was an unforgettable tour. He went beyond the basics and presented details of architecture, culture and history. As I am an architect, I like information that associates architectural concepts with historical moments. I loved it and highly recommend it!
