Great tour and we enjoyed the information and the painting. How fortunate we were to have the patience and guidance of a master painter and we developed a real appreciation of delft pottery and painting.

Very interesting tour. The only issue was that the tour guide started out talking about how the pottery is made, nothing about the history of the factory until someone asked. You got to watch the artist paint the pottery. The gift shop personnel were very helpful. You were given a gift valued t 25 E and if you didn't want it you will get that credit to purchase another item which we were not told from the guide but the the gift shop ladies. Overall a good visit
