Short and sweet, well worth popping in

A free, short and sweet tour with an informative guide. No hard sell at the end although there is the option to buy should you have the urge.

We visited this diamond company as it is stop No.5 on the Amsterdam City bus tour, it's basically a chance for the company to promote its products by offering a 'free' informative tour of their premises, they have shops onsite if you would like to part with your money, you may need to take out a 2nd mortgage to buy...

Never really appreciated the beauty of diamonds but do now. Free entry and tour and opportunity view the process of producing such magnificent gems and the end products worth thousands of pounds. Very interesting and awakened a love of diamonds.

Interesting Tour which is free for anyone travelling on the city hop-on-hop-off canal or bus tours. (red buses and canals) The diamonds are really beautiful and it is interesting to see them being cut.

Although it would have been good to have heard more about the origins of the diamonds it was fascinating to see and learn of the different shapes and cuts of diamonds sold. Not a long tour but to see up close diamonds and jewellry worth thousands of pounds was fascinating and certainly a one off experience for me!

Didn't know about this until we were on the hop on hop off bus. Tour lasted about 30 mins and was very interesting. Got to see people cutting diamonds. Very informative and was worth the visit. Didn't buy anything here though !

We were welcomed on the tour by a guide who described for 5 minutes about where diamonds are mined and the process in which they are turned into what we see in the jewellery. After that it turned into the 'let's try and sell you something' part. We were sat in a room and shown several different products and although... More

It is ok to know about diamond industry and the type of cuts and purity. It is easy if you take a boat tour and may be you can walk to Rembrandt museum, it is very near and nice.

Only found out about this tour when on the hop-on hop-off boat. Free entry with friendly guides. It was really interesting to find out about how diamonds are cut and that they are cut a specific way at Gassan Diamonds. In small groups we got to see, touch and try on the diamonds and see the differences up close of... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood 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.
