Overview
More
Amsterdam conjures up images of a less-than-puritan style of life, but we’re here to show you that this city offers way more than just the Red Light District – even though it’s a part of it! Our English speaking guides will help you cut the lines and explore the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, two of the city’s biggest attractions, on private or small group tours. With Babylon Tours, we’ll help you experience the historic side of Amsterdam, but we know how to let down our hair, too. Join us as well to explore the, let’s call them, alternative venues of the Red Light District with one of our energetic young guides.

Our guide Audrey Sikes was excellent! We not only got all the tourist attraction information we got an education of the real local culture and information that was really interesting and what we really wanted to hear. Highly recommend the tour and this guide.

Angela gave us all her time, energy and knowledge in guiding us through the Rijk and Van Gogh Museums. A history of Europe and a critic of the artwork. It was the best way to see the museums. Thank you Angela.

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
