Summer is gone but is it over

We have had an amazing summer with Oranje Umbrella. Some former guides like Phillip and Regina came back to help us over the summer and new guides were hired to our ever expanding family of guides. Our owner and manager Erik, became a DJ on the side, and Amsterdam saw its highest number of tourists we’ve ever had!

Oranje Umbrella therefore, had the most tourists we’ve ever had on our tours ( 6,000 tickets sold on just one out of our four websites) and more than 10,000 people this year! Can you imagine

There’s something we are doing right here … Read more

Last Chance Red Light Tours

Well our tours are still strolling along into summer. Can you believe it’s summer 2019 already! Time flies when your looking at boobies.

We know you hear it from so many other tours, but ours really is different. There are no scripts, there is no format ,and each tour can be different. It all depends on you!

Big Changes but Change is Good!

Hello people on the interwebs

Its been a hell of a year already in 2019 with huge changes in Amsterdam. The new mayor Femke Halsema, has been dead set on changing up things in Amsterdam.

One of the first changes is there are no more scooters allowed on the bicycle path. They have to now ride on the main roads with the cars( even though they arent allowed to go as fast as the cars), also it is now mandatory to wear a helmet. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but people are staging protests all … Read more

Up in Smoke Campaign!

Did you know that I am an international world acclaimed fashion designer?

Me neither!…….. But Im going to give it a try. Coupled with some of the most talented graphic designers in the world I am all about packages. I know that sounds dirty, but what I mean is how products are displayed to the world. I am obsessed with taking something that is otherwise dirty, and usually shabby, and showing it off like its a diamond freshly made. Makes sense right?

Sort of a rags to riches look, and that’s exactly what I did with our ganja tour. … Read more
