      I really enjoyed the tour and the guide (Georgi) was AMAZING - he was so knowledgeable and very well read and must an interesting person. I really liked the way he explained prostitution through a gender lens and challenged a lot of stereotypes. However, I am unsure if I joined the right tour group or not as the tour went for 40 minutes not 1.5 hours... regardless, Georgi was epic.

      The guide was very nice and even waited up for my group because we were running late. The tour was very interesting. I would recommend everyone to go. However the only disappointing part was that there were no samples of snacks like it had listed (no stropwafels!) so expect that it was fabulous and informative!!!!

      Walked through a lot of the different areas in and around the red light, heard some history about Amsterdam and see of the laws pertaining to the red light district. Absolutely loved it. Our guide was funny and keen on pointing out good places to eat and nice photo ops.
