RLD Amsterdam Tours signs agreement with city of Amsterdam
At 9 AM this morning RLD Amsterdam Tours has signed the agreement for tour guides in the Red Light District of Amsterdam with the city of Amsterdam. By signing this agreement RLD Amsterdam Tours has become an official partner with the city and other tour guides to reduce complaints from tour groups in the Red Light District.
For RLD Amsterdam Tours signing the agreement is an important moment, because we want to show that we can provide guided tours in the Red Light District in a responsible way, without causing any inconvenience for the inhabitants of the district, but more importantly for the prostitutes that work in the district.
Because we have a lot of connections with the prostitutes in the Red Light District, we frequently hear the prostitutes complaining about the many other tour guides in the area that are disrespectful and go around the area in groups that are far too large for this area with it's narrow alleys.
This has been the reason for us from the beginning to limit our tour group size to 20 people max. And, as one of the few tour guides, to only to do tours with a group no larger than 8 people on Friday and Saturday night.
For us the rules of the agreement are very much self-explanatory, as we've also helped to design this agreement, even before we started offering tours ourselves. Still we want to express the importance of giving tours to people which everyone can enjoy, without causing any trouble to the people living or working in the area. That is why this morning we signed the agreement with the city of Amsterdam.

RLD Amsterdam Tours opens business
From June 2017 visitors of the Red Light District can get an exclusive look behind the scenes look in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. RLD Amsterdam Tours will offer visitors a chance to talk with a real prostitute and step inside one of the window brothels during the tours. A unique opportunity to get an insider’s perspective.
Co-founded by a prostitute working in the Red Light District, Felicia Anna, RLD Amsterdam Tours want to tell the real story of the prostitutes working in this area. “There are many tour guides walking through the Red Light District of Amsterdam who have no idea what they’re talking about. I thought it would be a better idea to do it myself together with someone that actually knows how things work here.” says Felicia Anna.
Offering different types of tours for every budget, people can choose for a simple guided tour through the Red Light District with an expert on prostitution, book a guided tour where people get to meet Felicia Anna who will talk about her experiences, book a tour where people can actually take a look inside a real window brothel or combine them in a special VIP tour and talk with Felicia Anna while taking a look inside a window brothel.
Tours can be booked on the website of RLD Amsterdam Tours.
