Starting at Dam Square, our own native Amsterdam guide will take us on a 2-hour walk through the heart of Amsterdam: the Red Light District, Chinatown and the Jewish Quarter.

Hearing stories from the city's rich history, you'll get a deep understanding of that special vibe of Amsterdam: the openness and directness of its sailors and prostitutes, the tolerance of religion and drugs, the cultural mix on the streets and on restaurant's menus as a result of centuries of immigration; the spirit of free trade, the traces of slavery and Holland's colonial past, the trauma of the Holocaust and the no-nonsense style in Dutch life, art and architecture.

Join the Amsterdam Explorers Red Light tour to get a better understanding of all things 'typically Dutch' and to get to know the Red Light District from a completely different perspective!

This tour is a great way to meet new people. Not only that, you will also become a tour guide to your own friends and family when they next visit.

Afterwards, we'll have drinks at Café De Jaren.

Hope to see you there!
