Great tour of the red light district, drug culture and the history and current liberal views of Amsterdam. Not for the easily offended. Martin was an open book and very honest about the red light district and drug use in Amsterdam. Not your average tour, very entertaining. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great time on our tour. Our guide (unfortunately, forgot his name), was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. Looking forward to our next visit.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was from Amsterdam and he knew a lot about the Red Light district and the Sex Workers. His wife is a Sex Worker. Sounds strange, but in their minds it's just a job. Our group size was not too large. We learned a lot on this tour.

Martin was a great tour guide. He gave it to us straight with his own experiences and not the pg-13 version. I would recommend him to anyone and we even went to get a drink with him after. Made our stay in Amsterdam one to remember!

Loved our late night walking tour. Our guide was fun, data driven, and knowledgeable about the area and the history behind the Red Light District. Great eye opening experience for an area of Amsterdam that I think is highly misunderstood.

We went on a Saturday night so there were a lot of people can’t imagine what it would be like during high season.Our guide was very knowledgeable and had such enthusiasm for his hometown. He explained how the girls are unionized, safe, get a pension and pay taxes.Worth doing, wish the group was a bit smaller but otherwise ok.

We really enjoyed this tour. We had visited before, but had a million questions and really didn't know what we were seeing. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained to us the ins and outs of the redlight district. The tour was small so that made the experience more intimate . I highly recommend if you want to have a better understanding of the area.

Having been on about 8 tours the past months, Martin was definitely one of the best tour guides I had. He was energetic, knowledgeable, proud of his hometown, and his enthusiasm was palpable. It was a great learning experience for me and I had no idea how successful Amsterdam has been in educating it's residents when it comes to sex/drugs and the like. Definitely would recommend this tour for those looking for something different. Thanks again Martin!

This was one of our highlights on our trip. Our guide was the owner and he was so much fun! Super informative, very friendly and welcoming! I felt like he really did his research and he really wanted us to learn about this highly taboo area. If are you looking at tours, I HIGHLY recommend this one!
