On this tour, as well as getting to know the history of prostitution and drugs in Amsterdam, we will visit its oldest areas, its first street and first church.
Leaving from Dam Square, the tour dives into the streets of the Red Light District, its present and its past.
The Red Light District leaves nobody indifferent, and while we pass through the streets seeing the famous shopfronts with the girls on display, we explain all about the inner workings of prostitution in Amsterdam: its history, legalisation and present.
As well as the shop fronts, the Red Light District is full of piercing and tattoo shops, sex shops, innumerable themed museums and coffee shops - another phenomenon which has made the city famous. We will talk about marihuana, mushrooms, and the current state of drugs in Amsterdam, as well as taking you to find the area's hidden sculptures.
From a cultural point of view, the tour will take in the Warmostraat, the city's first street, and Oude Kerk, Amsterdam's first church.
