Lovely journey to get there and back . We had to ask for English commentary and it was hard to hear at the front of the boat , maybe change the voice to a male? We found the porcelain factory eventually , when stepping of the boat turn left ( wished we had!) . We arrived at the factory at 1 pm but the next tour was 1.30, we were assured we should be finished by 2pm but didn't want to risk missing the boat , ( I do have a few mobility issues especially on the cobbles) so we gave it a miss and went for an ice cream in a beautiful square and enjoyed the scenery which in hindsight I should have just done st the start. Oh we went down to find the setting off place the day before as you need to exchange your paper/mobile tickets at their info office - you don't find out till the day which jetty you are leaving from and you can exchange your tickets then .
It's an awesome idea, that you can see in live action, how the porcelan is made, and not only on a video.
Manufacturing Tour was professional - I was expecting it to be a bit longer. The museum is fabulous.
