What people are saying about Amsterdam Red Light District

The tour guide (Anni) was absolutely amazing, funny and was very informative. The tour itself is amazing - I would recommend an evening tour instead as we didn’t see many of women in the windows. There is an option to have a peep show as well and to try coffee with something extra.

The staff was great and answered my questions… I think I was one of the few that was paying attention to the scenery as a canal cruise was high on my list of things to do. Being a 420 cruise was the icing on the cake. “Highly” recommend the Buddha Lounge.

One of my favorite pubcrawls in Europe with great selections of stops for the crawl. Thanks to our amazing hosts— especially Juliette who was an accommodating and very pretty host ❤️ Wayy to excited to come back to amsterdam for this again!

This was a super fun boat ride. The hosts were knowledgeable and made the trip really enjoyable with fun tips and facts about Amsterdam.

Very nice tour with lovely people on board to assist you,really relaxing recommend to all
