Definitely recommend this tour! Interesting as well as fun. Great guide, took us through the center of Venice to get to the Vaporetto to Murano. Would have loved to see the rest of the island afterwards but they roll up the sidewalk after 5 pm.

Interesting tour. Best part was actually seeing the master glass blower making things and then making jewelry with murano glass beads.

My friend and I had such fun on this tour. We were very lucky to be the only tour. A guide met us at the square he escorted us to the water taxi, stayed on the taxi, and then again from the port to the factory. Another gentleman met us at the factory was kind to offer restrooms and coffee or water. He then brought us into the factory and narrated what we were watching as well as answered our questions. He then handed us over to Sylvia for some reason her name stuck and we did the workshop with her which included lots of conversation and giggles.

Exception tour! The first guide met us in the designated and easy to find spot, walked us through town, on the Vaporetto, and to the glass factory while giving us oral history along the way. The gentleman who gave us the private tour was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. It was quite fun making items out of the glass, in our case bracelets. Quite nice also to receive a 20 dsicount on merchandise purchased. I'd highly recommend this tour!

Loved this experience! The Murano glass studio ... watching the glass artist create ... making my own bracelet to take home ... and then walking through the beautiful shop was a treasured time in my visit to Venice!

We all loved the Murano Glass Factory Tour. It is amazing how they do the glassblowing and create all the different items. We wish we purchased more items and shipped them home.
