If you have a scooter or a driver, I'll highly recommend this tour. This is not one of your typical tours where you are made obligated to buy something at the end of it. Yes, it does start in the showroom, and you get to tour the hatchery - but boy is it an education! You learn the difference between... More

We interested with collection of sea pearl jewelry and some of look luxurious, instead of to follow the farm tour which is costly on how pearl farmed but we prefer to purchase one of the sea pearl jewelry only for our memory, to remind us that we had visited this places in Lombok Island. The showroom was made very nicely... More

Having been to "factory tours" like the Hershey factory in Pennsylvania I am always leary. This, however was a true delight. My family learned the art, beauty, science, and technology behind raising the animals that give rise to these little gems. The price is well worth it and includes drinks. The tour not only includes how the oysters are grown... More

My brother had visited Lombok a couple of years ago and recommended this tour to me. My brother is a studious intellectual but I'm more of the outdoor adventure type so wasn't sure that touring a pearl farm would really be my cup of tea. Especially since I have virtually zero interest in jewelry either. My friend and I, however,... More

I learned so much about pearls that I never knew before, and my guide knew the answers to all my questions. Cost 180K rupiah per person and minimum of 2 people, took about an hour and they literally showed us Oyster surgery how to make the pearls, I really loved it.

It cost 180,000IDR per adult which was very reasonable for the experience. Saw everything from baby oysters under a microscope to the feeding room to the surgery center to birthing a fresh pearl. We were not able to keep the new pearl and the option to buy an oyster with a new pearl was not available as others have said.... More

We visited with our 2 kids who loved the tour. Learned a lot about the farming of pearls. I was afraid of the 'hard-sell' approach of some other jewelry producers, but this was not the case at all.

Lombok has a number of pearl farms and showrooms that I am sure offer cheaper items. The range was not large but I saw something I liked and bought it. I trusted the name and the brand and the design of the items were more to my taste. Did I get a bargain? I have no idea but similar items... More
