Murano glass factory demonstration

Giovanni was very knowledgeable about Murano and all the history of Venice, too. He was kind, respectful and did the tour at our own pace. The glass factory demonstration is impressive and well explained. We had plenty of time to shop after. Thanks!

So glad we booked this tour. Our guide Francesca was very knowledgable about the history of Venice and was very helpful in getting us back to our hotel. We also had an amazing view watching the craftsman work and had some fantastic details given to us by the workshop guide. Highly recommended.

The boat ride to Murano was lovely and our guide was very informational. Murano is easy to walk around without the crowds of Venice. The glass blowing demonstration was fascinating. The master craftsman made 3 pieces of art as we watched on. The only disappointment was the glass factory guide. There was an expectation that we would buy something and when we didn’t, we were dismissed. We were on a private tour (not of our making or requesting). I think it would have been better to be in a group on this one. Maybe because we were staying in a nice hotel, they assumed we’d be buying something of value. The Murano art is lovely and beautiful but not something we would use or would go with our home in the States. Nice to see being made though and the island is quiet and charming. We visited on a Monday, so that made for less crowds.

Good tour rep, good experience to do, remember to make your own way back from murano. Glass shop is expensive even with 20% but you can still pick up smaller items.

Great value for money. Pick up direct from our hotel by private speed boat. Very upfront and personal at the glass factory watching 8 masters all working in perfect harmony. Both tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable.
