Great experience
Nov. 2021
It was a great tour with Stan, our guide. The tour was really private, meaning you have your own guide.
The streets were very quite because of the corona measurements, but the area was still very active.
Stan had a lot of knowledge about Amsterdam and the Red Light District.
It was such a great experience!
Highly recommended!

A little frustrating while being informative
Oct. 2021
While our guide, Stephan, was very nice and knowledgeable we came away from the tour frustrated. First, we had scheduled a 2 pm tour, which the company moved to 3:30 the night before because of another tour - while this in itself was not an issue it shifted our whole schedule for the day. Second, we walked non stop for the entire 2.5 hours without a break. We had no real understanding where we were in the the city and didn't feel we walked the most efficient route. The worst part was when several of our party had to use the washroom, he just kept walking and wanting to tell more stories, we had to GO! Finally, while not an overly prude group - Stephan acted out some of his stories on the street which really turned off a part of our group. The sex museum was recommended as funny by friends, but we found it just to be a lot of pictures of porn, if you are in to that go ahead, otherwise I would skip it.

Amazing tour
Jul. 2021
One of the best tours we ever did! This with our guide Tony. Anybody visiting Amsterdam should visit the Red Light District and do this with Trigger Tours.
Walking here by yourself you would miss out so much information and many hidden gems.
Our guide, Tony, was amazing and really knowledgeable about the area and about Amsterdam in general. We learned about the history of the area and its prostution and about the coffeeshop culture.
Five stars for this amazing tour!

Felt like we were out for a stroll with an old friend ...
Feb. 2020
My husband and I spent a few days in Amsterdam, and we decided to include this tour in our itinerary. The booking process was quick and smooth, and Tony quickly reached out to me to firm up the exact time we wished to begin our tour. On the day of the tour, we easily found our tour guide, Stan, at the appropriate meeting spot near Centraal Station. We spent the next several hours crisscrossing De Wallen. Stan did a fantastic job of presenting the history of the Red Light District, as well as explaining current trends and norms regarding this aspect of Amsterdam's culture and nightlife. (Being from New Orleans, I can honestly say that we were neither shocked nor offended by anything we saw or heard in the red Light District.) Our time with Stan felt less like being "on a tour" and more like being "out for an evening with a friend". We stopped for a drink at Wynand Fockink Proeflokaal and Spirits, and then when we asked for a suggestion for a place for dinner, Stan brought us to Il Pacioccone (a lovely Italian restaurant just off the Singel. Overall we had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour. I would highly recommend it!

Walking tour
Jan. 2020 • Couples
I’m currently still here in Amsterdam whilst leaving this review, we went on this walking tour with Stan, not only did he make this fun, but he had really good authentic knowledge of the streets and all the history of its residents too, we'd previously visited the red light District the night before so was contemplating cancelling it and only doing the museum, I’m glad that we didn’t, we now have what feels like a secret insight into the Red Light District, thanks Stan X

Best introduction to RLD and coffee shops
We were a little intimidated by the red light district and the coffee shop culture when we first arrived. Tony walked us around and got us feeling much more comfortable. We discussed the history of the city and the red light district before showing us the different clubs and even showed us how to use the sex booth. We basically went in and saw what it was like and left. Best thing is that he works with you privately with your comfort. He helped us order in a coffee shop and sat with us for a minute as well. I’d recommend this tour to anyone at any comfort left. It’s nice to begin your visit with an insider. Also it’s cheaper if you book directly from trigger tours. Google it.

Learned so much!
Nov. 2019
We took a tour with Cara in late November and absolutely loved it. She provided a ton of history about Amsterdam in general, and seamlessly wove the city's history in with the history of both marijuana legalization (or, tolerance, let's say) and the legalization of prostitution. I learned so much on this tour! It felt, as other folks have said, like walking with a friend you hadn't seen a while - totally relaxed and at your own pace and Cara was great at answering all of our questions. Definitely do this tour if you can!

Way more fun with someone who knows
Oct. 2019
Walking through the red light district - De Wallen - is much more fun with someone who knows it and its history and alleys and gable stones and so on. Stephan was great - personable and knowledgeable and funny. The two hours plus we spent wandering through one of Amsterdam's most famous, and infamous, neighborhoods was filled with great, old, and seedy stories, laughs, and personal anecdotes so by the end I felt like I was taking a walk with a friend. Especially if traveling on your own, I definitely recommend taking a walk with these guys when in Amsterdam.
