We taken the Free City tour with Sandemans. Our tour guide Mars was the highlight of the tour. He was funny and full of interesting information about Amsterdam, its history, funny stories and life in Amsterdam in general. It is a good tour to make on the begining of the stay, because you get a good overview of the city.... More

Very informative, highly entertaining, took in the main sights, a lot of "off the beaten track stuff too" and a brief overview of 800 years of Dutch history in 5 minutes! Our guide Paul was brilliant, enthusiastic, knowledgeable & made everyone feel welcome. Highly recommended.

Our tour was excellent and we learned a ton about the city of Amsterdam! I highly recommend doing it on your first day here because they give you suggestions for what to come back to as well as other tours you can take with them. Our guide Robbert was fabulous as well. #guideRobbert

Kor was our guide and he was fantastic! He was honest about the history of this beautiful city while infusing humor. He spent over 3 hours meandering through the alleys and large streets, ending with a raw account of Anne Frank's life and sad death. I highly recommend this walking tour as a way to get to know the city.

Our guide, Paul from Scotland, was really knowledgeable and it was a great trip and worth the time to orient yourself with the culture and layout of central Amsterdam. Paul also gave some good recommendations for restaurants etc and a brilliant Chinese massage place esp handy after the walk when your limbs are aching ;)

My friend and I went on the free walking tour at first (it was quite a while ago but I think the guide's name was paul), and we were hooked. We had to take another tour, and left wanting another one. We signed up for the alternative tour and really enjoyed ourselves (our guide on this one was the guy... More

It was our first day in Amstellardam, when we got on this tour. It was one of the most informative and entertaining tour I have been on. Sam was an excellent orator; he walked us through the historic sites of Amsterdam, fun places in the city, described the culture and do's and dont's of the city city as well. Unlike... 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.
