Lewis and I have taken two tours through the Red Light District and given one after our brief apprenticeship.
- Last year, 2013, we took the Saturday 5pm tour offered through the Prostitution Information Center (PIC). Mariska, who now runs PIC, was a prostitute and she gave us an informative one hour tour. She’s serious about this age old business and we learned a lot. If you are traveling with your parents, your kids or someone you don’t know very well, we recommend this one. www.pic-amsterdam.com
- This year we found Mark Law, a quirky, fun tour guide to take us through again. His tours are usually two hours long though we cut it down to one and a half. With Mark we saw more of the underbelly of the Red Light District and he successfully took us out of our comfort zone. He also did a good job answering the questions around legalizing prostitution. You have to schedule tours with him by calling him or using his website. Also important to note: he doesn’t just do tours of the Red Light District. www.thatdamguide.com Phone: 0031 (0) 6272 69604 or firstname.lastname@example.org I stole this picture from his website:
