Excellent tour with Stan. He is very knowledgeable and you can see he has a real passion for the tours. The group was very small (only five other people) which made it an even better experience. Stan could answer all our questions without hesitating. Highly recommended. We do recommend to take an earlier tour so everything is still open. Because of covid regulations some places closed earlier.

Very interesting and entertaining

The guide's knowledge of German was semi-optimal. He was understood, but there was a lot of confusion. He knew some of the everyday experiences of sex workers and was then able to make the tour interesting. There was also a lot of information about the history of Amsterdam.
