Great tour guide and experience. Happy to have seen multiple items made by the glass blower. The factory was extensive and beautiful to view. The workshop was nice I made some earrings for myself.
The glass-blowing demo was incredible and certainly changed the way i looked at the glass items in the shops.....so skillful!
Interesting place, love the art of blowing glass and the glass blower gentleman was awesome. Spent lots of euro at this place.
Awesome and the guide will tailor it to what you group wants.
Fun and such a great learning experience! Would definitely recommend it!
This was excellent, really enjoyed it, the guide was good at getting us there and back to the vaparito, The guides just needs to make themselves knowen, we did not know the guide and had to ask.
This was a fun and interesting tour. I learned a lot about glass blowing and the hands on was a great way to end the tour.

This was a wonderful experience. The owners were extremely hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
Priceless behind the scenes experience. We felt so honored to hear first hand, and in an intimate setting, the history of Murano glass, view an artisan at work and experience first hand the magic and majesty of the creation of a piece of Murano glass art. This tour so enhanced our Venice experience.
Fantastic trip, so interesting and wonderful to see the glass blower at work, he made it all look so easy!!! We had the opportunity to make a bracelet from glass beads and keep it, which made a lovely souvenir. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip.

My family and I had a great time on this tour. Ludo, our tour guide, was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed the glass demonstration with the glass master and my daughter was chosen to assist. Definitely an unforgettable memory!
We overslept and thought we missed out on our tour. But they came and picked us up!! The glass factory is incredibly impressive and an all around great trip!
We loved the tour. It was a Sunday so much calmer than usual. Especially enjoyable was participating in the glass blowing.
Very good time. We were able to explore the oldest church in Murano on the walk to the glass factory, The factory had many great pieces and it was fun to watch the glass master create a few pieces of art in front of us.
Very interesting glassblowing demo
Fun make it yourself session
Lovely stuff in showroom

This was a lot of fun! We met our guide Gianluca at an easy to find place and he walked us through Venice to the vaporetto stop, pointing out various points of interest and history along the way. The vaporetto took us to Murano, where we walked about 5 minutes to the Colleoni glass factory and met Ludovico, our host at the factory. He brought us to the glass-making room and the demonstration began. Ludovico described the process in detail and we watched the masters at work. They offered my wife and I some home-made iced tea, which was a nice touch and refreshing since it was so hot that day. Then, they let my wife come up and work on a glass fish with the master. Keep in mind that you do not get to keep what you make with the master. After another room and more information about glass blowing, we were brought into the showroom / museum to see some of the work done over time. Great stuff! At this point, we were free to wander around and shop for glass items. This is expected for any Murano glass factory tour it's how they make their living. There were some reasonably priced items we found. After we made our purchase, we were brought into a craft room where we could make either glass bead jewelry or a mosaic ornament. We made ornaments by gluing pieces of glass onto a cardboard backing. Then, Gianluca escorted us back to the vaporetto stop to complete the tour. All in all, we really enjoyed this experience. Everyone there was friendly and there wasn't really any pressure to buy anything. We bought stuff because it looked great. Completely worth the price!
Must do tour! Very informative and fun to watch. The best thing was getting to make a bracelet at the end which I got to keep. My sister was actually one of the volunteers that got to help the glass master when he made a fish. She was able to purchase the fish at the end, a great keepsake to remember her time in Venice.
Met our guide. Got lost on the way. All other parties in this tour did so as well. Need better directions to meeting place. Other than that our guide gave us a lot of background info on the boat ride to Murano and took us on a walk further giving us details on the way to the glass shop. The demonstration was wonderful with several types of objects made in front of us with another person talking us through the process. Then we were able to make a bracelet of ornament using Murano glass beads. Very enjoyable morning. We were then on our own to walk around Murano be taking the boat back to Venice
Amazing to see technique used to make glass into a beautiful piece of artwork.
This was a really fun experience for my 9 year old, who collects glass figurines. We made nice bracelets, got a demonstration of glass making, and were welcomed kindly by the factory owners. We were able to shop the very large show room.
