"First things first, it’s not THAT kind of coffee shop. There’s not a Starbucks to be seen on this private eye-opening tour that lifts the lid on liberal Amsterdam and one of its most curious and controversial industries. The city legalised the use of cannabis, sparking the rise of coffee shop culture. Visiting three spots with a local, this is your chance to explore (and indulge, if you wish) this unique slice of life in Amsterdam all the while being in safe hands and learning about its history, how the shops operate and both sides of the marijuana debate."
