We have been on lots of these "free" walking tours and Sandemans have always been outstanding with usually very witty and very knowledgable guides . Mars is originally from Poland but considers himself a local now , he certainly knows his stuff and makes the tour very interesting. The tour lasted over 2 and a half hours with a short... More

we had a great time getting to know a bit of Amsterdam and its history with our guide Julian. I recommend this company for any city in Europe :)

We've just finished our very informative tour with Jeremiah and his knowledge and history of Amsterdam is fantastic. We would have liked him to perhaps suggest more restaurants or bars for the younger ones but the tour was exceptional! Would recommend doing this in your first day of the trip to find your bearings!

I organized all of my tours through Sandeman and I don't regret it. I started with the General city tour with Kendra who was hilarious and gave us a heap of recommendations on restaurants and other tours to try. I then did the alternative walking tour with Mark who gave us a heap of recommendations for cafes to try and... More

I went on the 3 hour walking tour with Rocco as our guide. He was friendly, enthusiastic, approachable and incredibly knowledgable about the city and its history. His enthusiasm is infectious and I found myself shocked at how quick the 3 hours flew by! I would highly recommend this tour, especially with Rocco as it helped me to fall in... More

Our first time to Amsterdam and we wanted to explore the Red Light District properly - so we chose to do a tour with SANDEMANs, and it didn't disappoint! Our guide Paul was AMAZING - not only did he give an intimate look at the Red Light District, he also managed to pop in the most amount of sexual innuendos... More

I had the pleasure of touring the city with a local, Kor. I was absolutely blown away by his knowledge of the region in general, and the city in particular. His useful insight made the tour--and the entire trip--much more enjoyable. This was the best walking tour I've ever done.

First time going on a walking tour, turned to be the best experience! Our tour guide was Bas, he was a funny and lovely Dutch guy and told us so much about stuff we would never know without his tour. He was well prepared to make all the tour members feel comfortable with each other, and gave good answers to... More

We decided to do a walking tour in January as we wanted to explore the city and get a good understanding of our surroundings and the history behind it. Having previously done a Sandemans tour we knew they were a good choice and we were not let down. It was incredibly busy and so we were separated into smaller groups... More

The tour we Did was amazing, Kor was hilarious and very informative. We really liked the tour as it wasn't the normal tour you can book on every street Corner, but a really original and funny one. Highly recommend the tour and especially Kor as a guide!

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
