We did the free tourist tour, which takes about 10 minutes and then changes to a sales pitch (which was not uncomfortable given the fact that you get to look at 100.000 € diamonds...). The tour could have been a bit longer but given that it's for free it was really good. If you're in the vicinity, it's definitely worth... More

Went here as it was a stop on the HoHo boat. It was a really informative experience. Obviously, the company wanted to promote itself but it was done in a non pushy way. I learned quite a lot about how diamonds are cut and their imperfections, how this affects price etc. Yeah, quite good

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

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.
