      The boot ride was amazing! We were lucky that the weather was sunny and warm, so it was even better for us to enjoy the view and see the famous attractions. The captain was funny and kept us all entertained. Personally I do have to admit I’m not sure if it’s worth a trip to the red lights museum. Within 30 mins we were already done with the tour. ‍♀️ However it’s interesting to know and see about the history. At the end of the tour you even get to take a free picture per Person and get it printed out right away!

      Amsterdam at night

      I loved the experience. To learn about the history and culture that founded the city and grew it into what it is today while taking in the beautiful sights of the canals. Also to learn more about the history and conditions of the women of the red light district was one of my highlights.

      War ganz nett.

      Ich habe dieses Kombi Angebot gewählt für einen spontanen Trip nach Amsterdam. Das abholen der Tickets ging einfach und problemlos. Die Orte, wo ich was finde wurde mir super vom Ticketverkäufer erklärt. Die Grachtenrundfahrt war top ind sogar dank des Kapitän ein bisschen lustig. Das Red Light Secret Museum war etwas anders, als ich mir gedacht hatte und sehr eng und voll. Trotzdem hatte es sich gelohnt beides zu machen. Es war sein geld wert.
