Amsterdam Underground offers (former) homeless people and users a meaningful daytime activity that links with their knowledge, qualities and skills. Our guides are usually a long way from the labour market. During the walk, they use their past to...more
I think anyone visiting Amsterdam should go on this tour. Amsterdam Underground takes you through the popular Red Light District and shows you a different side of the city; those of being homeless, drug addicts and involved in prostitution. Especially impressed with the strength and...More
I took the tour with some of my friends. We are all living in the city but still learned a lot from this tour. Michel really took his time talking with us and it felt more like walking with a friend than a tour guide...More
This was an amazing tour. Sonja took me and my classmates on a tour of the places she used to work when she was in prostitution. Including walking through the Red Light District, seeing pictures of how Chinatown was riddles with crime, and seeing areas...More
My husband and I did a tour with Michel which was informative and through the eyes of someone who had lived through drugs, crime and homelessness. It was fantastic to hear Michel's story as he walked us through the city and no questions were out...More
I have been to Amsterdam several times before but with this tour I saw scenes and streets I had not seen. Glenn our guide told us his own story and the story of the streets of Amsterdam. There is a lot of history in the...More

Our family of six did a tour with Desi. We are all Dutch nationals and three of us live in Amsterdam, but still we learned a lot of new things about the Wallen. If your looking for an in-depth look into the history of drugs...More
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.
You can bring any age group along. We found it to be a bit of a history lesson in life. For me it would be a great lesson for teenagers on what not to do where drugs, alcohol or crime was involved. Ask for Micheal as a... More
