the glass blowing demonstration was only about 5-10 mins long at the most. The translator was very good at explaining how they make the glass and the history of murano. if i were to do it again i would book the travel to the different islands and see the glass being made on murano island it self

don't waste your time or money. It was 5 minutes of glassblowing and then a hard sell of glass products.

Great demo but it was only for 5-7 minutes - should be extended to 15 minutes.

Basically is a visit to a store! they have a 5 minutes presentation by a glassblower and then move on to the saying of glassesprobally made in CHINA!. The experience is just 10 but still... you can walk for free to a store

It was a good trip - too short. Otherwise - okay...

Amazing craft. I especially liked the marine themed pieces with bubbles in the glass.

Really enjoyable insight into glass blowing although would have been better if we had more time actually watching the glass blowing and not as much time trying to get us to buy from the shop. Our guide was very informative and did make it interesting so I would recommend it

Unfortunately we got lost and never made it to this event.
When we did get our bearings, we still didn't find it.
No one other than out poor sense of direction was at fault.

I'm sure it would have been wonderful!

Very cheap but only lasted 20 mins or so. Saw a guy doing some glassblowing for less than 5 mins and then looked round a shop and got our free gift
