Cape Town Things to Do: 1,233 reviews and 2,195 photos

This is a manufacturing plant that gives free tours that describe the uniqueness and science of diamonds, gemstones, and I believe gold. There is no obligation to buy at all. Don't let the guard turn you off the guides are good. Do as many tours as you can. The tours do go by rather quick. This is ideal for those buying engagement and wedding rings.

This is stop 11 on the hop on hop off bus or for free they will pick you up at your hotel and return you back at no charge.

Address: 170 Buitengracht Street
