O Ian foi o nosso guia e a experiência foi muito agradável. Muito boa informação sobre a história e funcionamento atual do red light district, no que respeita à legalização da droga e prostituição.

The tour with Foxy was very entertaining. He provided good commentary and information about the area. The only downside and not Foxys fault is that it was raining. Highly recommend this tour.
