    Georgi was a very thoughtful guide but it was more philosophical than we expected and far too many stops for long discourses on modern sexuality

    Response from SNE_Violeta, Guest Relations Manager at Amsterdam Red Light District 2-Hour Walking Tour
    Responded 2 days ago
    Hello VictoriasQueen, Thank you for your honest feedback about your recent tour of Amsterdam. We always appreciate it when guests take the time to let us know about their experience so that we have an opportunity to improve our service. We are sorry to hear that the Red Light District Tour was not to your liking. Each freelance guide we work with has their own style and personality, which we encourage them to express on their tours; it’s what keeps tours promoted by SANDEMANs unique and interesting across our network. All the guides are very passionate and enthusiastic individuals but, unfortunately, their personal tour style does not always match every individual guest’s tastes. It is regrettable to hear that in this instance you felt that Georgi’s style was not in line with your preferences for a city tour. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. All the best, The SANDEMANs Team

    We had a great tour through the Red Light District that included my wife and two teenage boys (17&18). Very well done and extremely informative and fun - great balance between the history and how the district developed with the impact and support for the women to work safely.
