We have experienced the tour as very pleasant and very informative. the guide knew a lot about the area and its "residents". He has shown and described every characteristic part. He has told us the history over the years. But what struck us most is that he described this with great respect. In short, we have experienced this excursion as very valuable. We would not have wanted to miss him during our visit to Amsterdam.

We had an entertaining and varied guided tour through the district. Our guide Sten was very well prepared and it was a pleasure to walk through Amsterdam at night with him.

Maybe more sharp focus on the Red light district would be better without mentioning the general facts about Amsterdam.

Ne tolle Tour! Definitiv empfehlenswert. Vera als Tourguide - besser konnten wir es nicht treffen :-)

Great guide, great tour - it was really very informative and entertaining.
