Hopefully the visit is free otherwise I would have been disappointed to pay for a visit that short. We are just told few explanations on how the diamonds are cut and that's it. The whole point is for you to buy something.

On our last day in AMS it was raining. We decided totake the HOHO bus tour. Gasson was one of "free tours". I'm not stupid, I knew where this would end up. We took the tour which was very interesting. I learned alot and was pleased with what they showed us. Of course the sales pitch came at the end.... More

Tour is not the right word. You are shown a couple of young guys supposedly polishing diamonds. Then taken into the sales room for a sales pitch. You are never shown any craftsman at work and the "tour" is an excuse to get you in for the sales pitch. Not worth a visit unless you are looking to buy.

This was a stop added to a package of tours I bought. This place was super cool and is still in operation today. This is where they cut diamonds. They show you the entire process and you get to watch the workers in the process. Very pretty product available for sale as well. The most interesting thing I learned about... More

Went on the off chance, had a free coffee and had to wait about 5 minutes for the next tour to start. Got to see real diamonds being cut to the 121 facets that make them extremely expensive. Then got to see some finished diamonds, both on their own and some set into rings and watches - some worth tens... More

Let's be clear, the tour here is simply to put you in a room with a salesperson at the end to try to sell you some jewellery. Once you accept that the info shared is interesting and the ability to see the guys working on the diamonds is impressive. The tour is 5 minutes or so then 15 minute sales... More

You can get some interesting information from diamonds, like carat, colur, price, shape, etc. And after the tour you can buy some expensive jewelry, watch.

I tried my best to avoid this, but she insisted. Amd now I have to say that I'm glad we went. The free tour was hosted by a very personable and patient woman who had an encyclopaedic knowledge on diamond polishing. We saw demonstrations of the craft, and then had the opportunity to hold and examine the products (the security... More

I thought this visit as part of the tour will be boring , but my husband and i enjoyed every minute of it. The guide was very helpful and it was very knowledgeable. Next time i will visit with more cash because they very good discounts if you buy directly from the factory 😉

The hop on hop off bus has a stop at the Gasson Diamond. You are welcomed by their executives who takes you to the first floor where workers are working on cutting and polishing the diamonds. A full explanation is given and you could see the earlier and present equipment used for the diamond trade. You are then shown and... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
