Full description
Transport is provided from your hotel in Johannesburg or Pretoria to the world famous Cullinan Diamond Mine. Visit the Cullinan diamond mine, where a diamond of 3106 Carats were discovered in 1905. You'll have the option of a surface mine tour or an underground mine tour. A surface tour comprises a nine minutes DVD, a model of an underground tunnel, the mine shaft, the hoist room and big hole. The tour lasts for 1 and half to 2 hours. The underground mine tour takes about 4 hours.

You then walk to other levels where you will see the ore being tipped, crushed and hoisted up. You also visit the administration offices and workshop underground. After visiting the mine, you will get the opportunity to visit the Cullinan diamond mine market for an unforgettable diamond jewellery shopping experience. Drive through the beautiful town of Cullinan, and finally return to your hotel in Johannesburg or Pretoria.

It was not worth the money we paid

Interesting but incomplete

The surface tour is the same as any gold, copper, coal mine ... to remind you that we are in one of diamonds there is only the shop for purchases. There is an introductory museum but they don't give you the time to see it. Professional is the assistance service of the agency from Italy.
