What you can expect

Enjoy an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Get to know the Red Light District like a local.

I'll show you the old harbour of Amsterdam, the Red Light District, like no other guide can.

My wife and me are the only guides in Amsterdam who own two former window brothels. Here we manage a workshop place and a chocolate & spice store.

During the tour you'll learn all the ins and outs about prostitution, soft drug policy, spice trade, Golden Century, oldest building, house & canal etc.

The photo shoot takes place in our former window brothel, in the world famous skinny alley, an active prostitution alley.

It is a fun teambuilding activity, not a glamour photo shoot, discover your alter ego in this Dutch tradition of costume photos.

You'll receive all the photos in a Dropbox map.

My wife and me have operated this photo shoot with a lot of succes for the past 6 years.

This activity is not only for bachelor/bachelorette parties, but also perfect for a birthday, ladies-day-out, and even some company outings.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!"
