Had never been on a walking tour before, and learned about Sandeman's from a friend. Richard Sheehy made the experience quite enjoyable! He knew a lot about the city, and gave each history lesson a comedic spin. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

We just so happened to stumble upon this free walking tour and it ended up being the best thing that happened to us on our backpacking trip! This specific tour with Sam was awesome, he really helped us to narrow down what we wanted to see and do by telling us what was worth seeing and what wasn't in his... More

I went to the monument at The Dam this afternoon. There were so many people that showed up we were split into several groups. It's a free tour! It's about 3 hours. I gave my tour guide Rich the Irish comic €10 gratuity for his great patience and personality. I'd previously been to all of the places on the tour... More

This time in Amsterdam we went for 2 SANDEMANs trips. Alternative Amsterdam tour, led by Bas and Red light district tour led by Mars. I have to say... Mars is such a good guide. Hilarious and very honest. The tour for red light district is really an eye opener and a must have experience to SEE Amsterdam in naked truth.... More

From the very start of the tour we were immersed in the history, culture, architecture and everything else to do with Amsterdam. Sam our tour guide was clear, enthusiastic and passionate about sharing his love of his city with us. On the strength of this tour (our first) we have booked walking tours for Brussels, Paris and Prague, although we... More

Really enjoyed the walking tour conducted by Sam. It was packed with information and a lot of fun! Walking along the alleys was really nice and Sam's take helped to get a new perspective of Amsterdam. Thank you!

The concept itself is great obviously, but we were extra lucky with our amazing guide Rich, who happens to be a stand-up comedian by night, so you can imagine how he made this almost 3,5 hours long walking tour a delight filled with clever jokes and laughter! Thanks again man, see you at your comedy show!

He was fin, engaging, lively, and passionate. I think we lucked out with the type of guided tour we got today. From doing Sandemans tour in different cities in... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
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.
