We had the tour with the only man in the team. With wit and lots of clear information, including all about the red light district, he guided us through the district. We did the tour on the first day and saw it as the ideal start for our city tour.

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.

We enjoyed the tour very much. Mona, our guide was very good and gave us very good information about Amsterdam. Thank you Mona for the nice tour with you!

Yesterday we made a very nice and interesting bike tour through Amsterdam with Mr. Hamburger as guide. Really recommended.
