Our tour was ran by a lovely woman Berber. She was really informative and made it interesting and funny. We saw some lovely places in and around Amsterdam we would of not otherwise seen. We stopped for a break in a cafe and got to know other people on the tour. There was a mix of around 10 different nationalities.... More

We landed in Amsterdam first thing in the morning, dropped off our bags at the hotel, and went straight to this tour. And I highly, highly recommend you do so too if you get a chance. This was such a great way to set the foundation for our vacation, the right mix of city info, cultural insights, and historical context.... More

After a rather overwhelming start in Dam Square with what felt like 100 other people waiting for the tour, I had a bit of a sinking feeling that this would be badly organised/we wouldn't be able to hear etc. I couldn't have been more wrong. We were in a group of less than 20 with our guide Dominique who was... More

We went on the free walking tour with Dominique. She was good fun, very knowledgeable and answered all the questions we had about the city and it's culture. The tour covered a lot and we got a really good feel for the city from it. Came away with lots of information about how Amsterdam was founded and Dutch culture as... More

We decided to book the free walking tour for our first afternoon. What a great decision! We learned so much about Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Mars was funny and well-informed. We decided to book the Red Light District tour at the break because we were so impressed with this tour. It was really, really cold and Mars' tour took our... 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.
