“Go on this Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2008

My boyfriend and I went on Randy Roy's redlight tour on our visit to Amsterdam and we were really glad we did it.

I emailed a few days before and didn't hear anything back, so we called when we got to the hotel and made a reservation for the 8pm tour.

It's a very laid-back way to get your orientation around the Red Light district and get a local's perspective. (The guide is American, but she's lived in Amsterdam for 20+ years). She gives you some general history of the city, and then shows you some notable bars, coffeeshops, and stores in the area, as well as the girls of course. She tells you where you can and can't take photos and will answer ANY question you have about anything along the way.

At the end you go for a drink at a bar together and then you're on your own! Highly recommended, I would do it towards the beginning of your trip.

“A must do in Amsterdam!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2008

Went to the tour on a saturday at 8. We had made a reservation via email and got a rapid confirmation from Kim. The tour was great, Kim had a lot of "inside"-tips, good stories and much more to offer. This evening we were only 7 people who had sign up for the tour. 12,50 for 1,5 hours and a free drink was the best spent money that weekend!!!

“Fun and safe way to see the redlight district”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2007

Highly recommend seeing the Redlight District with a guided tour. The guide was a fun and friendly Dutch who spoke perfect English.
It was a Saturday night tour at 8pm (October 2007) and the streets were quite busy and crowded. Having the tour for 1.5hr was an efficient way to see the different sections. She also shared very interesting stories and history of the district. I think it was well worth the 12.5 euro.

I would recommend emailing them first and make reservation in case there are any changes in time or cancellations.

No photograph is allowed in the Redlight District, and there are security cameras all around the district.
