your experience

Amsterdam does have a reputation if you think about it. As a city with red lights above the windows and the smell of marijuana in the streets, it makes for the ultimate Sin City. In this walking tour, you will discover the famous wrongdoings that took place in this town from the past to the present and follow the 7 deadly sins: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Pride and Envy.

Follow an expert local guide through the picturesque streets of the old center, and listen to the fascinating stories about the temptations in the city and the people that went astray. You will also get to understand why the Dutch had a manic obsession with tulips, and learn about the angry ghost of Helena, who still haunts the medieval houses. Explore the Red Light District, including all the secrets and hidden spots that tourists never get to see.
