Fancy seeing Amsterdam from a whole new perspective and in a thoroughly relaxed style, yet without ingesting the city's famed indigeous cigarettes?

Red Light District Tour
Half Day
Not visiting the Red Light District while in Amsterdam is as perverse as some of the things that go on within the area itself! This tour takes you around the small alleys of 'Wallen', meeting
former prostitutes and finding out about the history of the world's oldest profession. The tour then continues to include various monuments and sights, including the 'Zeedijk'.
