    Definitely, it was one of the best things I did through Get your Guide. I'm the kind of person who loves knowing the place where I'll be and learning about its history is always a plus, and David was an excellent guide, he shared tonnes about Amsterdam's history during our walking tour.

    I was unsure what to expect going in, but the tour was great! Max showed us all of the major sights of the Red Light District while explaining the history of sex work and marijuana in Amsterdam in a really informative manner. He also gave great suggestions for coffeeshops, cafes, and bars in the area. I would try to take the 8:00-10:00 tour, since it’s really cool to see how the district comes alive at night. One word of warning - this tour is definitely not family-friendly! But I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in exploring the Red Light District in a group.

    We were satisfied, our guide answered all questions. Was a very funny guy. was fun The only bad thing was that there were several guides on site at the time and had no identifying feature, so it was difficult to find out who we belong to at first, as our guide was also late.
