I would give this tour 3,5 points. It was ok and interesting, but nothing special. Prices were very high as was the tour.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The pearl farm tour is fantastic and great for children. I took both of them and they were simply amazed by how complex it actually is. I had no idea that pearl production is actually about taking care of oysters.
The farm is located in a beautiful bay across from the Gili islands. The showroom is enchanting with incredible and unique pearl jewellery. The jewellery presented in the showroom proves that pearls can span a wide range of tastes and styles, not just conservative and traditional.

“Interesting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I am an Indonesian yet i never knew that Lombok actually produces pearls so two weeks ago when we made a holiday in Lombok my husband and i tried to find out if there is any pearl farm offer tours so we checked google out and from there we came across Autore and happily, it's not far from our hotel in Medana Beach.
Anyway, it was exciting to know how pearls are produced, to know how many forms and colors they have and also, to be able to differentiate the real pearls to the 'other' pearls...
At the end, i think i would regret if i hadn't taken something home from there so we looked around, after being served some soft drinks, at their nice showroom and my husband ended up
buying a simple necklace for me. Besides, our 6 years old son got also a present from them: 3 pieces (oyster's) shells...

“Very educational!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

It started all quite unexciting, looking at the labs etc., but when it came to the 'nucleation' process shown on a live shell it became truly faszinating. And then the harvesting!! Also very interesting was a lesson in the classification of pearls. I have had no idea! When practicing my new knowledge in the showroom I pretty soon realized what a fantastic collection it contains. Highly recommended tour!

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

What can I say? The coastal drive north-west of Senggigi is sublime. Little coves, hidden valleys, and sandy beach after sandy beach backed by an unbelievably azure ocean and lines of white waves rolling in from the south. And then arriving at Teluk Nara, take-off point for the Gili islands and Bali - and the Autore Pearl Farm showroom provides the perfect stop. A cool drink on the balcony, the natural timbers and clean lines of the design sitting out over the ocean on stilts and overlooking the pearl farm and traditional boats moored in the bay - and then the service of friendly young men and women, who smilingly explain the beautiful pearl exhibits and the process of producing them..... what can I say? Perfect!
