  • Nice, short and free guided tour with information on Tanzanite and the mining and polishing process. No pressure to buy. Recommended.
  • Very accommodating shopkeeper/owner. Various stones at a competitive price. Definitely for the tourists though.
  • Nice place, excellent food, good price and nice staff.
  • It was a brief but educational experience. I would certainly do it again. The cut stones are beautiful.
  • An interesting museum about the gemstone tanzanite, how it was found and how it is mined and processed. Jewelry can be bought but there is no pressure to buy anything. The museum itself is for free. A great activity for a rainy day
