We had a good, informative 2 hour tour of the history of Amsterdam and the red light district with the pleasant German speaking guide Scarlet. Unfortunately, the time for the information about the coffee shop and the visit to one only took about the last 15 minutes. With a "coffee shop tour" as it was called, we would have expected that this topic would be the main part of the tour.

I booked this tour as a coffee shop tour, it happened to be a red light tour, hence the star deduction. I stayed anyway because our guide Michel did a great job, very authentic, entertaining and informative. And then he made a lot more possible... It's a shame that the customer doesn't get what he paid for. It's great that there are people like Michel.

Really good tour, I had to reschedule due to my flight being delayed, was able to do so over the phone with no issues. This tour also tells the history of Amsterdam, politics and the infrastructure. I had Aaron as my guide highly recommend this tour helped me get grounded around the area.
