  • Due to city regulations, guided tours are not allowed to pass through the Red Light District, so you will see the Oude Kerk from a nearby street.
  • The Basilica of Saint Nicholas is open to the public Tuesday – Friday from 11 am to 4 pm, Monday and Saturday from 12pm to 3pm.

  • In Amsterdam, the rule is that a licensed guide can show a group of 1-15 people, so the price of the tour will be higher if you need more than 1 guide. For 16-30 people we will provide service of 2 licensed guides. For 31-45 people we will provide service of 3 licensed guides.
