Had a lovely few hours with Sem, very informative and interesting. Sem himself was great, really fun and charismatic. Tour included some good places, interesting to hear things we wouldn't have learnt otherwise. Good mix of trivia, history, geography etc. Really enjoyable afternoon! Only downside I would say is that the group size was quite large. But other than that,... More

It was snowing earlier the Saturday I did the walking tour, so understandably it was quite cold during the 2.5 hours we walked around the city. Nevertheless it was still worthwhile. It makes traveling much more meaningful to hear some of the history and culture behind a city. The guide was very knowledgable about the city and there were ample... More

Discovering a city can be much fun, but exploring Amsterdam with the City Free Tour Amsterdam and our tour guide Monique was not only fun, it was also entertaining, informative, witty and extensive. In almost 3 hours we not only walked through the various neighborhoods of the vibrant city center, we were also walked through the eventful history of both... More

Great walking tour of the highlights of central Amsterdam. Our guide Monique was endearing and had a great knowledge of the location, history and Amsterdam culture. So much nicer than hoping on a bus or barge and getting a pre-recorded commentary. I would highly recommend this tour.

I visited in January when it was extremely cold. I had been to Amsterdam before, and had done the walking tour so I new it was good. Our Tour guide was Kor and this tour was far better than the last one I had gone to. It was brilliant, it focused on history, modern culture and he was so funny... More

We did this tour in January 2017 on a rather nice but cold day. Despite the cold, our guide Kor offered us a fantastic experience. Having a background in history, urban planning, acting and being a local himself, Kor guided us through "his" Amsterdam and managed to make the tour extremely interesting and funny at the same time. He was... More

We visited Amsterdam for a weekend and got told about this walking tour. Me and my wife booked up early and meet the tour guide at the place and time they emailed us. The tour itself was great but very cold. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the 2.5 hours seemed to fly by. At the end I had... More

The tour was great. Our guide Axel showed us "his" Amsterdam and told us interesting stories and facts about it. We saw more than the typical sightseeing points. The tour took about 2,5 hours and it was fantastic :)

We did the tour in January with Marius. We did the tour on our first day in Amsterdam, it was good as our guide showed us the different parts of the city and we could then choose which places we wanted to visit again on a later date. Marius was funny and very knowledgeable of the city. I'd recommend this... More

Monique started her tour with letting all people who took part at her tour knowing each other. It was nice way making people feel more comfortable while spending 3 hours together. Also I found it very nice that she asked everyone at the beginning about our expectations and wishes regarding the content of the tour. The tour was supposed to... 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.
