Group tour to Mogok
We are starting again our tour group (small group) to Mogok.
Mogok is a mythic destination, beautiful but rather expensive (and a little difficult to go, now you need two special permits).
Mogok has been closed more than 10 years, most or all guides have no gems knowledge and experience of Mogok.
In order to offer you the same level of services and quality we offer to gem schools, labs, gems professionals,
we are now offering small tour with GEM-A graduated French and English guide.
