I did thoroughly enjoy this experience. I was alone, which was fine and I was made to feel totally comfortable. I had pre booked in my tour, which was a nice feeling to have it confirmed. I had turned up at the Gassan Diamonds shop in Dam Square but they helpfully pointed me in the right direction. After a free,... More

We visited with 3 other couples on our trip to Amsterdam. The visit was free but we were all prepared for the hard sell. The surprise was, there wasn't any hard sell, just an interesting little tour with information on how they cut the diamonds. Then out came trays of jewellery that we could try and drool over for a...

Diamonds tour is a bit of an exaggeration. You go to one room and watch two men polishing diamonds. then you sit with a Gemologist who explains the different cuts, colours and clarities and shows you samples. That's it. There is free coffee in the gift shop, and it is almost undrinkable.

We have been customers of Gassan in Amsterdam for many years now, originally going on a tour, then going back to buy a ring - 1/4 carat to start with, but whether you spend £1,000 or £10,000 they treat you amazingly, we felt like the Beckams. You choose the diamond you want, the setting you want, and hey presto 30... More

An informative tour for you to know how raw diamonds polished into sparkling gems which had 121 facets. The diamonds and jewelry were passed around to have a closer look. You can even put on the ring (with diamond) on your own finger. However if you come along with groups that choose and compare diamonds for two-three hours, it will... More
