5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

An excellent experience with a highly talented guide. The best way to see Venice is by boat and this tour did not disappoint. Our guide had an excellent grasp of the history and really brought the place to life. Murano glass experience was superb and watching a master glass maker at work was unforgettable.

My family and I took this trip in December 2017, we were really lucky with the weather,with the day being cold and bright. The trip down the grand canal with the expert guide was excellent, we all learned so much about the history of varrious areas and buildings lining the grand canal. It is a great way to get to know Venice an the major attractions like st Marks. The trip to the Murano glass works was the second part of the tour, during the trip over to the island you get some excellent views of Venice and in the distance the Alps. At the glass works you get an up close and personal demonstration of glass blowing which is excellent. The only down side is the visit to the glass shop afterwards, there are some excelent glass art works, however the price of the items in most cases are well over 1,000. Some of the pieces are over 100,000. However there is no pressure to buy, but you are followed very closely during your visit which I did not appreciate.
