  • 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.

  • tour experience is ok. however over priced 3x

  • 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!!!

  • Interesting tour but completely ruined by CRAZY ridiculous prices of raw stones and jewellery. Prices quoted were insane eg.£21,000 for a medium sized blue moonstone in gold ring. Wasn’t even worth starting negotiations with such RIP OFF merchants. The overly pushy sales tactics I saw other visitors experiencing was both upsetting (many were elderly tourists) and laughable. The styles were not unique (if that could even justify their prices) you could find them anywhere else in Sri Lanka. I would have liked to buy some of the uncut crystals except that I could have bought for half or a third of the price back home in the UK! What A JOKE

  • Best place for Moonstone.
