Hi, thanks for the feedback, I'm really glad you enjoyed the tour. I love questions on tours, particularly on this tour as it is such a complicated subject!

Mark did a great job of showing the highlights (and lowlights) of the district. He has great respect for the sex workers, which was an important factor for us when selecting a tour guide. He was a lot of fun and very energetic!

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.
