There was a very interesting portion showing the history of the diamond trade with old tools. They explained the characteristics of a diamond and how they are cut. This portion of the tour is very interesting, but very short. You are whisked away to look at the diamonds in the shop and encouraged to look at settings etc. from different... More

I would have been very disappointed if we had had to pay for this tour. Not a tour for those interested in the process of cutting diamonds. A short presentation on how stones are graded and priced is interesting then it is basically a look in their displays and then downstairs to their shop.

We took a tour to the Gassan diamond factory. They show how the raw diamonds are made into faceted stones and allow you to view the process as it is completed. They then take you into a room to view diamonds and talk about the four c's. Next they pass around several trays of jewelry and watches for everyone to... More

we visited because the canal boat stopped here and said the tour was free and they offered free tea and coffee in the gift shop, the tour was very short, around ten minutes, then we were shown into a room where the guide informed us about the diamonds they sold, the cut, clarity etc, then she laid a few pads...

we got a free entry from our hotel. This included a short tour and some tome looking at pieces for sale. The tour was just for our family of 3 which made it very interactive. Well worth a visit- only takes approximately 45 minutes.

My friend and I hadn't planned to do this tour, but, having bought a 24 hour canal boat hop on/off ticket, we discovered a free tour here came with our ticket. 'Tour' isn't really what I'd call it, more of a 'visit'. BUT, it is fascinating and fun. First you are shown where the diamonds are cut and then you... More

Did this as part of a hop on hop off tour. Went on a little tour around the factory. Got to hear about diamond quality and cutting of diamonds. Everyone was given the opportunity to try on the jewellery. You were also able to browse the shop and buy items of jewellery if you wish.

Free, fascinating and informative tour of the diamond factory as a part of the hop on hop off bus and boat trips. There is also an opportunity to look at and try on some lovely jewellery but no hard sell. The Blue Delft shop opposite provides free hot drinks and toilets.

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.
