It is ok to know about diamond industry and the type of cuts and purity. It is easy if you take a boat tour and may be you can walk to Rembrandt museum, it is very near and nice.

Had not been aware of this attraction, heard about it whilst on the city sightseeing tour. A very interesting visit made all the better by "Marie" our guide who was knowledgeable and personable. There was no rush or pressure to the tour just information and interaction.

Got to see this place with free enterance with our hop on hop off tour bus. A fun little stop for 20 minutes or so. Pretty cool to see them actually cutting diamonds in front of you and to get an up close look at some pretty nice diamonds!

I booked this tour online and surprisingly they sent me a personal guide, which mads the experience so much better. My guide was professional and knowledgeable. I am not crazy about diamonds, I am just curious about it from a cultural/intellectual point of view, and this tour covers the basics on how to appreciate quality diamonds. Very educational. While it... More

We booked the City Sightseeing bus (hop on hop off) and this was one of the stops and it has free entry. It's certainly worth stopping off and visiting - all of our party found it interesting and enjoyable

Beautiful stones, friendly staff, you learn quite a bit about the process and see the cutting happen. There's a gift shop at the end of the tour. It's not a great attraction by nature which is why I only rate it 3 not because of any fault of the operators. A nice distraction from the busy streets of Amsterdam.

the idea of getting information about diamonds industry and getting an idea about the processes of cutting and polishing diamonds seemed quite interesting so we went. The only issue is that the tour and the interesting info lasted for about 10 min and the rest of the time we were informed about the latest deals that the co had to... More

Interesting seeing the process from an uncut stone to the finished product. Unbelievable how expensive something so small can be. From 309€ per stone to 43,500€ shown to us by our tour guide. For those wishing to purchase there's plenty on offer.

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.
