My wife wanted to look at perhaps upgrading her diamond ring so we checked out the tour. There was a brief tour showing some oddities and rarities and then were whisked upstairs. Then came some price specials and a hard sell approach. I took the...More

This free tour is definitely worth it. It is fun to see the cutting and polishing room. But, the tour guides were clueless! Having bought a few diamonds in my life I knew more than they did. Their 15 min talk was full of factual...More

Our children loved everything here and were very well looked after. We like diamonds. The shopping experience is everywhere and there is no quick way out.

'Tour' is a strong word for what happens. They want you in just to buy. Don't bother, if you want to buy, look elsewhere. And don't bother with the museum either

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
