Discover the Raw site of Amsterdam and Secrets of the Red Light District

Are you looking for the raw site of Amsterdam? Then this tour might be for you. In this tour we will discover the hidden secrets of the Red light District. The oldest part of Amsterdam with over 800 years of History. I have been guiding in this district for 4 years. Never on my travels around the world I have seen something like this.

It is the biggest red light district I have seen and has a place in society that is Unique in the world. What makes this neighborhood so special? How is the life of these woman? Does the Blue Light district really exist? Is there any male prostitution in the Red Light district? What is the history of the oldest part of town? All this and much more we will talk about in the Raw Romance Tour.

My aim on this tour is to give you an in depth idea of what I call the most fascinating district of Amsterdam. Let yourself be taken away with the Raw side of the city something that I believe can not be missed.

This entire tour can be customized to personal preferences.
