      Great experience

      I have to admit that I was very pleasantly surprised by the experience, largely thanks to the guide that was assigned to us. He was a young, Galician boy. He made the route a great experience, explaining to us in great detail, without getting into the morbid, everything that can be found in the red light district; offering us a point of view that I, personally, had not conceived and that opens my eyes. In short, apart from showing you the red light district, thanks to the guide, we had an enormously enriching and rewarding experience. 100% recommended.

      Very casual and fun tour. Very interesting to find out more details about the "work" in the red light district, e.g. about the pay and shift work of the girls as well as their working hours.
