Congratulations you made it! Your trip away in Sin City starts right here! Home to the world famous red light district, “coffee” shops and it’s well known nightlife, Amsterdam is the perfect place to invade. Explore the wondrous city in the day either by foot, bike or canal and then in the evening come and partake in the amazing nightlife that Invasion organises, which involves visiting some of the best bars in Amsterdam, as well as a tour of the red light district.
With so much to do, whether it is a visit to the Heineken factory, Anne Frank’s house, the Van Gogh museum, the Ajax stadium or a world famous Sex Show in the Red Light District, it is impossible to be bored in Amsterdam. Spend your days experiencing the city on water on one of Amsterdam’s canal cruises or by cycling through the streets. On your first night, join us for a walking tour of the red light district followed by our Rembrandtplein bar crawl and then spend your second night on our Leidseplein bar crawl which features one hour of unlimited shots and ends in one of the biggest clubs in Amsterdam. We have sorted out drinks deals with the bars on both pubcrawls in advance, to ensure that you’re not paying over-the-top inflated tourist prices!
People that have invaded Amsterdam with us always come back and say that it was one of the best weekends of their lives! So what are you waiting for? Come and find out why the Amsterdam Invasion is so sought after and why we’re the number one way to experience the DAM!
