What you can expect

The Red Light District is one of the most interesting and beautiful neighborhoods in the world, but has a bad reputation. It somehow became my mission to show visitors the many beautiful sides of the area.

This tour is an ideal mix of history, current changes in the Red Light District and future plans for the neighborhood.

Visit the heart of Amsterdam, the oldest building in town, the place where Rembrandt got married and many other historic sights.

Experience the famous Dutch tolerant culture in this tour. Our multicultural society, acceptance of homosexuality and much more.

The area is known for it's window brothels and coffee shops, but due to a project of the city council many are being closed.

Creatives (like myself) are able to rent these former window brothels and start businesses inside. During this tour we'll visit my former window brothel!

- LOCAL AMSTERDAM GUIDE & WORLD CITIZEN
I was born in Amsterdam, started working as an actor, after which I traveled all over the world. During my travels I've worked as a tour guide in Brasil, Belgium, Ireland and the Netherlands.
The last 10 years I live with my family in the old city center of Amsterdam. Since 4 years I give tours in Amsterdam.

- MY SPECIALTY
I specialize in giving tours in the old city center of Amsterdam and the Red Light District. Making people enthusiastic about my town is one of my specialties. Every tour is an adventure, with 100% customer satisfaction.

- ROOTS IN THE AREA
My grandfather used to own one of the first bars in the old city center for colored sailors. I love telling stories about multicultural Amsterdam (most multicultural city in the world!), the 17th century, Red Light as the old harbor area, second world war, tolerance towards religion, the Dutch soft drugs policy, prostitution and current changes in the neighborhood.

- OLD CITY CENTER & RED LIGHT DISTRICT
The Red Light District is one of the most interesting and beautiful neighborhoods in the world, but it has a bad reputation. It somehow became my mission to show visitors the many beautiful sides of the area.

This area has some of the best restaurants, bars, museums, stores and nightlife of Amsterdam.

CHOCOLATE SHOP & CREATIVE SPACE
Due to a project of the city council many window brothels and coffee shops are being closed. Due to this project, creatives (like myself) are able to rent these former window brothels. During my tours we always visit my former window brothel.

- 5 STAR TOUR GUIDE
Well known 5* tourguide in the area, no tour is the same. Sometimes locals invite us inside, or we have a small cheese or chocolate tasting or other adventure, it all depends on the wishes of the group.
I mastered the talent of being able to adapt to the wishes of my guests.

I love to welcome you in Amsterdam, please contact me if you would like to have a personalized tour!"
