Super props to Dominique! But she's not an employee of Amsterdamsel Tours. (I take pride in paying lovely guides like her a proper wage for their hard work btw!) Very very glad you got a good experience in any case.

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
