      Informative and interesting tour of the Jewish quarter
      James our tour guide was very polite engaging and very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the Jewish quarter and how Amsterdam was in World war 2. Would definitely recommend but in conjunction with Anne Frank tour. Unfortunately we were too late to book the house.

      Interesting and moving tour
      Very interesting and sometimes even emotional tour! Unbelievable what once happened during the war and still happens to people in war. Our guide Guido was kind, friendly and patient. Well informed as well. This tour gives you so much more information than just visiting Anne Frank’s museum. We recommend!

      Great walking tour!
      The guide James was very knowledgeable and took us to many parts of Amsterdam where many tragic events took place during the persecution of the Jewish population in Netherlands. It was surreal and poignant standing outside apartments of people who had been driven from their homes and treated so inhumanely, and the various buildings that were used by the Nazis in their persecution. The pace and duration of the walk was just right.

      Museum Visit
      This was definitely a unique experience but I am happy I went in to see it. Some of it felt a little cheesy but some was really cool to see as well. It is about an hour long to visit. If you’re in the area and have time, I would recommend popping in just to see it.

      Anne Frank House
      Very hard to get tickers to this popular stop. YOU MUST get the tickers online through Anne Frank web site. Only offered once a week. It is a very moving and interesting tour.

      American couple loved the private tour experience.
      My husband and I took this tour with Pilar as our guide. She was amazing and so knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam and the Red Light District, which we loved learning about. The tour was very thorough and covered many areas and interesting sights, including the oldest coffee shop, smallest street in Amsterdam, and more. 10/10 would recommend.

      Great walking tour
      Great walking tour through a historic part of Amsterdam. Our guide Jay was very knowledgeable and very informative. He was very sensitive to the red light area and respectful of the ladies working there. We really enjoyed this walk.

      Tasteful and informative tour of the Red Light District
      Our guide, Sander, was knowledgeable and funny. We were late to the tour and he worked with us to meet him on the tour. The tour also included information on Chinatown and other history in the city.

      Misleading Tour Name and Content.
      Tour guide was great and knowledgeable but the tour itself was VERY MISLEADING. There was very little associated with Anne Frank other than she was one of the Jews killed during WWII. The tour is billed as an Anne Frank tour and we thought this included the house. Only with you click into the tour details of what is “not included” do you see that the house is not included. You done even go near the house (they are banned from going near as they as not associated with the Anne Frank house at all. Still an interesting tour but now what we expected. Buyer Be Ware!

      Something Different for Us
      I wasn't sure what to expect on this tour so don't know if I got it or not. Our guide was amazing (Arree). He is brilliant and funny and kind and knows the ins and outs of the district. We learned a lot about the historical side of the district, and the guide made it feel less awkward for us. We were able to tour the sex museum without the guide and it was fascinating.

      A great way to explore the Red Light District.
      Pilar our guide was very attentive and informative of the history of the Red Light and Amsterdam history too. She walked us through the district very nonchalantly and explained the history. A very respectful tour.

    We toured with Arree. He was knowledgeable and fun! He went over the background of The Red Light District, as well as the area as we see it today. He answered all of our questions and shared some fun facts. We would recommend Arree and his tour.

    Such an informative tour and Catherine, our guide for the 2 hours, was brilliant. Definitely worth doing at the start of your break so the city makes more sense. The food stops were a great insight and we wouldn’t normally have known or had them.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with Alex. We got a nice overview and history of the Red Light District, complemented with three food tastings. The first one was some kind of meat on a stick with a fried coating (we chose Satay flavor -- delicious). The second was Dutch pancakes (can't remember the Dutch name for them but they were delicious). The third stop was seafood. Alex gave us a choice of herring, which we don't like, or deep fried cod, which was very good.

    Alex was fun company, and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

    We had a great tour of the RLD. A lot of walking nut its the best way to do it. Unfortunately due to the new regulations, we had to tour late afternoon and the RLD wasn't hopping yet with the usual night activities. Our tour guide was great and gave us a lot of historical information. We all enjoyed the foodie tour. Enjoyed the "street" Indonesian food.

    I honestly wasn't looking forward to a private tour because last time we had one with a different company was an awful experience. This private tour wasn't anything like that, it was entertaining, fun, funny. Our tour guide tony was very easy to talk to and he had plenty of knowledge about the red light district. The tour flew by and I was sad it ended . Definitely recommend it !

    My group and I were reluctant about having another private tour because we had had a different private tour with a different company the day before that did not go so well. But Tony exceeded our expectations. Not only was he well informed about the history and culture of Amsterdam and the Red Light District, he was very easy going and fun to converse with. It was about a two hour walking tour but it flew by. I would definitely recommend this tour and Tony as your guide.

    Tony was very personable and took us to the fun spots at the red light district that we probably wouldn't found on our own. Also we were able to taste a local delicacy Poffertjes (small dutch pancake). They made it on the spot so it was warm and delicious.

    It was so nice to have like two tours in one! We had the chance to see and learn about the Red Light district and had a taste of the typical Dutch snacks and bites like the ‘kroket’ and the ‘poffertjes’, which was my wife’s favourite! Als the visit to the cheeseshop was really fun and tasty. We als bought some cheese for at home.
    Amazing this Red Light area, how it was created centuries ago, when the saillors went looking for some female company. Our guid, Tony, made us feel at ease and told us many things. Great guide!
