I did the surface tour of the mine in a safari vehicle. An brief introductory talk provides information on the formation of diamonds, the history of the mine and the diamonds found there. The tour was interesting and informative.

Apologies for the delayed response! I didn't buy diamonds so can't comment but I know there were discounts offered. I selected a silver ring with cubic zircons from another store and have had nothing but compliments.
