Hi, thanks so much for coming on all 3 of my tours! I love small group tours, they are fun for me too and make my work feel like a holiday!

Our guide, Lee, was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. I think her bicultural background (Canadian and Netherlands) provided a unique and very helpful perspective. She clearly enjoys her job.

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

Pick-up and drop-off are across from the station. The excursion does no travel great distances from the city, however, weather and traffic can affect arrival time.
