  • We were brought here by our driver who insisted to visit this "famous" place. That made us suspicious and it came out we were right. This "famous mine" is a simple whole arranged somewhere in the garden, people seatting there seem to pretend they are working (apparently only if some tourist come) and the "guide" is interested only in selling the stones (he were very unpleasent after we did not bought anything). The mine seems to be fake and the prices for jewelery are just crazy (taxi drivers and tuk-tuk drivers get probably a provision for bringing people here). Honestly, mind this place. There are a lot other pleaces you can spend your time.

  • Very expensive place our guide alert us about place and price

  • very expensive, I do not recommend it for buying gemstones. be carful, prices are three to five times

  • Avoid this place!!! They charge even 5 times the real price!!! They put you in a hurry to buy something. Better try in other places around the city, ask and compare prices... Don't go to this place!!!

  • It’s a nice tour, however, there are some things you should know. I researched it after I went and this is what I discovered: 1. They are not entirely honest with what stones are from their mine, and what stones are brought in from outside. The only stone to be found in the mine is white moonstone. 2. The Tuktuk drivers take a good share of any profit from a sale, which contributes to hiked prices. 3. The artisans put on a show while you are there, but I’m not convinced they are the actual skilled men on the job. 4. The prices are scandalously high. Like 400% too high. Don’t get ripped off here. There are some good things to see, but don’t be fooled. I think this is a crooked operation run by scammers.
