What to Expect
Learn about the darker side of Amsterdam’s Red Light District in the company of a crime journalist, and visit the sites of historic and recent criminality.

You will go deep into De Wallen, the oldest and most beautiful part of Amsterdam. Behind the façades of the picturesque buildings lie friendly freaks, prostitutes in “shop” windows, and small alleys where cannabis plants are grown.

Discover the most criminal street in Amsterdam, with a police case behind every door! See the spot where the liquidation war started in the '90s, hear the story of the legendary Heineken kidnap, and how one of its organizers became Holland’s most notorious criminals. Your guide will also tell you about the murders of prostitutes and explain who Skinny Josje and Hungarian Bertie were.

End at a typical Dutch café on the Zeedijk, formerly owned by a legendary hash smuggler. Learn about the coffeeshops where hasj (hash) and weed are legal, and how a coffeeshop was even set up in a former police station.
