Trigger Tours it the best! We booked all our tours with Trigger Tours and the company is very accommodating. We seen this tour on TripAdvisor but decided to book the tour directly with the company to cut out the middle man! Highly recommended!

We were a bit hesitated to visit the Red Light District area by ourselves so we took this tour. Even though we found out the area is very safe, we were so happy we took this tour. Our guide Alexandra was very friendly and showed us many sights and streets we would never found by ourselves. You learn so much about the Dutch laws and history of the area. Thank you Alexandra!

Tony is a very charismatic guide that made us feel very comfortable. With this tour you learn about prostitution, history and of course the coffeeshops. After the tour Tony brought us to a coffeeshop for a small workshop. Very interesting

We joined the Red Light District walking tour with Gio, and it was fantastic! Gio was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Despite the bustling Saturday night crowd, we felt like we had the district to ourselves. Highly recommend this tour!

I’ve been meaning to write about the Red Light District tour I went on last month. It was honestly one of the most fascinating experiences I’ve had in Amsterdam. Our guide was very informative. She didn’t shy away from the tough questions, and I really appreciated her honesty. It’s a tour I’ll definitely be recommending to friends!”
