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.

Very interesting, but not too exciting. Quaint little town. Our guide was very instructive and funny. It would not be on our 'must do' list, but something worth while to do once.

While the surface tour was good and informative, I wish i had more time to go underground. The guide was only able to provide basic information on the geology and the mining process. The underground tour requires twice as much time but I certainly think...More

We took some friends visiting from the US on a short mine tour which was very informative. The town itself has some great shops & cafe's for browsing or enjoying a nice meal or snack. Overall a nice day out.

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.

Hi Karrst. Could you tell me how to book the tour you did, please, or any other tour operators that do this well? There are lots of different tour companies offering this tour but it is hard to find out prices and if they are reallly connected to the mine. We have been quoted over R4300 for two to go with a guide. Any help would be much appreciated. Tim
