Very friendly and informative. The part of the tour about how diamonds are cut was really interesting. I had no idea how it was done. It was wonderful to try on their amazing selection of rings (which were completely out of my price range) but...More

Visited the diamond cutting factory today. Very polite and friendly staff who gave extensive briefing. Its spectacular diamond cut Gassan 121 Exclusive Cut was indeed a great eye opener. It does live up to its good name very well!

Really interesting tour, staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Jewellery for all budgets. I was not aware the tour was available until speaking with the “hop-on-hop-off” tour guides, and I am delighted not to have missed the opportunity to see inside a diamond factory.More

This was a "free" tour that we learned of during our visit to Amsterdam. It is relatively short, but very interesting. You learn how diamonds are cut and the various properties of diamonds. You also get to see some fabulous stones.More

Yes the museums are open on Queens day but there is no public transport within the inner caal belt so you will have to push you little one all over the place in a buggy I guess and that will not be fun as the streets will be very crowded so forget AF huis that day. The VG &amp; Rijksshould be OK but bear in mind that one of the biggest events is on the Museum Plein. Vondel Park is probably a good location for you though. Depend entirely on the weather.
