Then they offer you some specials if interested to buy . Museum is well managed , clean and is of high quality .

Really wanted to do this but was somewhat disappointed with the tour and lay out. Tour leaves every 10-15 mins. Quick discussion on diamonds and look at some nice stones then you are taken into a room- there were approx 20 of us. Door closed then msny stones, rings, watches were produced for people to buy. Exit via the shop.

Visited as part of a group. Tour guides were very knowledgable on the subject and showed us the different sizes and colours of diamonds available, including black! Worth a visit for an hour or so.

I made the mistake of showing the girls back home some pictures of the tour of the diamond factory. More importantly I bought myself a watch and nothing for them. This went over well😑😑😑😑😑😑 Great tour and the staff were extremely friendly!

We found this tour to be very informative. The lady providing the commentary was obviously very knowledgeable and having the opportunity to have a close look at the whole process of diamond selection, cutting etc plus the finished product was great. We would have loved to buy a diamond for our daughter but had to settle on a very nice... More

Nice free guided tour of the factory where you can see diamond cutting, ask questions and see different kinds of diamonds. Very interesting in a nice factory with a big shop where you can purchase watches, jewellery and other things. Worth a visit.

As part of a bus tour, we went into this business and got a first hand look at how diamonds are cut and the clarity is decided. Got to look at different cuts and how much they would cost. Of course you had the option to make a purchase.

The tours are are given in various languages, and we were attended by a Spanish speaking tour guide who explained the process of finding and abstracting diamonds, how they were cut once in the factories, and shown the process. We were then taking into a room where she explained how to evaluate the quality of a diamond and allowed us... 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.
