We did the 3 hr Amsterdam history walking tour with Rob. It was great! Rob is very knowledgable and professional. That Dam Guide also recommends a few places to eat. Loved the pizza recommendation and not touristy. Small group size, with only 6 of us. Beats the other groups which we passed with 30+ people. Well with the money! Rob... More

We had a fantastic day trip with Rory. We started with a stop in Monnickendam, where we enjoyed being the only tourists. From there we drove on to the Beemster Polder and visited a farm that provides milk to Beemster dairy. We visited a working windmill where we were able to climb to the top and learn how the windmill... More

I have always believed that you get what you pay for. The two walks that I went on were informative and gave me a better understanding of Amsterdam's history and how it evolved to become the city it is today. Both guides, Benjamin and Lealu were professional, knowledgeable and able to answer the many questions we had for them. Benjamin's... More

My husband & I take walking tours in every city we visit. It is a great way to get the 'the lay of the land', history, fun facts, and food recommendations. When visiting Amsterdam, look no further then That Dam Guide! Mark was knowledgable, interesting, and funny. We learned so much about Amsterdam in our 3 hour tour. In the... More

Had the fortune of doing a country side tour with Rory. Cold, a bit of a drizzle and it was perfect. We were able to learn about the canals, some small facts of the city and simply enjoying the sights. Rory treated us like friends out for a drive and it was fantastic. Got to drive through the small villages... More

Our guide, Benjamin, provided a thoroughly enjoyable walking tour of Amsterdam. He was both knowledgable and entertaining. The small size of the group is a major advantage as it also allows you to chat with your fellow tourists as you walk round the streets.

A great introduction to Amsterdam - past and present. Lealu was so friendly and we had a wonderful time walking through the streets, seeing and learning things that we would never have discovered on our own. Highly recommended.

Really great tour! Very informative and heard some great bits of history I wouldn't have learned otherwise. The guide was honest and genuine. It wasn't too cheesy either, which tours can tend to be.

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.
