Delft pottery tour

Which porcelain/pottery tour would be best to visit, the Delft Pottery de Delftse Pauw factory or the Porcelain fles delft factory?

I've been to both factories, and I prefer de Delftse Pauw.

Porceleyne Fles is a larger factory, they charge for their tour, and their pottery is more expensive.

De Delftse Pauw is a smaller factory, they have free tours, and their pottery was not as expensive, so I could afford to buy vases for all the women on my Christmas list (granted, they were small vases, but I had a lot of women to buy for).

Here's a link to a thread about Delft and pottery -

Here's a thread about the Delftware mosaic in the bike tunnel in Delft. If you walk to Porceleyne Fles, you will walk through the tunnel. -

Enjoy your travels to Delft. Peace, Robyn >-

Thanks so much for your tips! I'll be sure to check out the tunnel. I've never heard of it before. We'll be staying in Delft for 4 nights, doing some day trips with a car, as my husband wants to drive the Market Garden Route. Then we'll head to Amsterdam for 5 more nights. I sure hope the tulip fields will be in full bloom the week of April 22!

Tulips will be blooming then.
On your route to Amsterdam be sure to drive the backroads around Lisse and Hillegom, you will be amidst the fields then.
And/or visit keukenhof.http://www.keukenhof.nl/nm/english.html

Thanks Ida. We have a whole day reserved for the gardens and a bike ride around the fields. I love the map on viamichelin of this area, because they have pictures of tulips on their map where the fields are!
