On this tour, as well as getting to know the history of prostitution and drugs in Amsterdam, we will visit its oldest areas and its first street.
Red Lights and Dark Amsterdam Tour
Leaving from Dam Square, this tour dives into Amsterdam's narrow streets and thrilling history.
Our tour will also incorporate aspects of local life, as you'll learn all about how the area's residents live and how you can engage with the culture without having an impact on the locals' way of life.
Once known as being the most dangerous part of the city, the heart of Amsterdam is now a bustling hub of modern-day travellers drawn in by the city's liberal laws. Your expert local guide will take you to iconic sights such as the Condomerie on the famous Warmoesstraat, which was the city's first street. As well as this, your guide will also discuss how Amsterdam's coffee shops, sex workers and drug laws have brought the city international fame.
This tour does not include streets with sex workers' windows, out of respect to the area's residents and workers.
