Full description
This tour has been recommended by Lonely Planet, The Telegraph, Fox News, Yahoo, the Huffington Post, and The Culture Trip. It's always hosted by local guides who are officially licensed by the Dutch government. Meet your guide on Dam Square: Amsterdam’s Main Square. After a short introduction you’ll set off on foot through the famous Red Light District that is locally known as “De Wallen”. Learn everything about Dutch liberal culture, legal prostitution, local drug laws, and “De Wallen”.

You’ll pass by legendary cannabis “coffeeshops”, red-lit window brothels, beautiful old buildings, a museum of prostitution, sex shows, nice bars, and good restaurants. Your guide will share the origins, history, and the current iterations of the Red Light District and what it means to the culture of Amsterdam as a whole.
