    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Amsterdam is famous around the world for its liberalism, but its Red Light District is often thought of as a haven for looseness, lewdness and licentiousness. Look beyond the drunken tourists, however, and you will find a vibrant, living neighbourhood, in which the roots of Dutch tolerance and pragmatism can be found and in whose contrasts the concept of “gedogen”, the uniquely Dutch method of turning a blind eye, is clearly on display. Join us on an exploration of this fascinating area and learn about its past, present and future as it struggles, like the rest of the city, to deal with the recent influx of tourists. This tour contains sexual themes, but that's what you were secretly hoping for, right?!

    Please be advised, this tour does contain some strong language.
