Great if you are interested in learning about glass blowing. The furnace and workshop is open for a tour and demonstrations.
However, the trip to get there is long, rough and dusty. Not sure if the area is in a very safe location as quite off the beaten track.
We visited with our children and not a good idea as breakable glass products everywhere, combined with the long drive made for a very stressful day out.
The products are lovely though and handmade. I would suggest to visit their shops instead to buy these, bear in mind they are fragile so not the best souvenirs!

The last 3.5km of the trip is indeed bumpy and dusty, but we are aware of a contract issued to repair it within the next year, at least to good smooth dirt status. We have daily community police vehicle patrols, a local police post and administration police in our neighbouring village.
We are also revamping our toilet facilities (finally) to a deluxe level, and have recently completed a picnic/seating area.
With regard to children, we regularly host school trips without any mishaps (so far!).
By the way - the window glass we use to make our products is surprisingly strong, and we've successfully shipped all over the world. We'll be happy to 'export pack' whatever you like. Even the largest and most ornate chandeliers and tables can be dismantled for transport.
Warm regards, Anselm.
