“Fantastic tour ”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

We met Kimberly for the 10pm tour and she was fun and informative. She took us all around the red light district and told us all about the history and some amazing facts about the area e.g. Blue lights for the transvestite windows! She took us to a very cool bar after the tour, which felt a very personal touch as she stayed with us for a while telling us more about her life in Amsterdam. We would highly recommend this tour - a highlight of our trip.

“Tastefully Done”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Our small group made reservations for this tour while we were in Amsterdam before a river cruise. The guide did a great job of explaining the history and regulations involved in the "sex business". They look at his completely different from America and feel that this will occur anyway so why not let them pay taxes and keep a clean bill of health. It was a very interesting tour, different from my expectations (in a good way), and I would not have been comfortable meandering through the district without a guide. We ended up at an intimate little bar for beer or wine. Our guide also recommended a great restaurant in the district -- Little Thai Prince (very small).

“Kimberly Rocks!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

This is an absolute must-do in Amsterdam along with Van Gogh museum and Anne Frank house. Kimberly is a wonderful guide providing a lot of insight about the Red Light District. She provides color not just on the sex trade but also the coffee houses and historical aspects of the RDL. I would recommend this as a first thing to do in Amsterdam and a good way to get acclimated to the city.

“Solo young adult had great time!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

I allowed my young adult son to take the tour solo for a reasonable overview of the Amsterdam night life with a knowledgable guide. He joined a 10 pm Saturday tour group that included a bridesmaid party (thoroughly plastered) and a few couples (not so). Although a fresh-faced 18 yr old, he was treated with great respect by the guide Kimberly, and was warmly welcomed by the group. According to his account upon return, they had a most interesting and informative tour, followed by a wrap up drink at a local bar. Kimberly was magnificent in providing friendly fun under cordial and safe conditions.

“Great tour for the Randy type!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Took this tour on 4/5/14. What a great tour guide! Henny was really great with a great sense of humor. He was very knowledgeable and had some great stories. I highly recommend this tour for those of you with a "Randy" side. It's fun and quite something for those who think the red light district is only for the naughty ones. It's amazing how different it is from the United States! Great fun!
