Discover a different view on the most famous neighborhood of Amsterdam


This tour offers you a unique insight, a female perspective, on the Red Light District that no other guide can give.

Together with my husband I own a small chocolate shop in the Red Light District and I am also involved in different social & cultural initiatives in the neighborhood.

This has given me the chance to get to know the neighborhood in all it's diversity. In my walking tour of 2 hours I will not only tell about history and all the hotspots, but also talk about current events and all the changes taking place in the neighborhood.

Where most guides talk from a male perspective, I can tell personal stories and give different points of view, and tell about my experience as a female entrepeneur in the Red Light District.

During the tour we will also visit my chocolate shop, which is located between the ladies, in the famous most narrow alley of Amsterdam.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you the beautiful and diverse oldest neighborhood of Amsterdam, the Red Light District!

We were a group of 5 people on the chocolate and spice tour and the red light district of Amsterdam tour. Our guide Salome was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and so engaging. We were traveling in Europe for 2 weeks and out of all of our tours this was the best. On a rating scale of 1-5 and 5 being best this tour by Salome was a 5 and far exceeded our expectations .
