  • Took this tour with my husband and two boys 8 and 10 years old. I wouldn't recommend this special tour over any other glass factory tour. The 30 minutes in the factory watching the masters at work was really interesting--the man explaining what they were doing was very personable and reasonably knowledgeable about the process. The rest of the tour was very silly. We met our guide by the Rialto Bridge and walked 15 minutes to a public ferry. She was happy to answer questions about Venice when I asked them of her, but was otherwise very quiet. Turns out, she was just bringing us to Murano and dropping us off so it was less surprising that she wasn't really a tour guide personality. After watching the glass blowers for 30 minutes great! we did a really silly craft activity using typical glass beads similar to ones I've seen at bead stores in the US. They let my husband go back to the factory to take more photos bonus. Conveniently, the craft projects with glue needed to dry while we looked around the insanely expensive store. The group consensus was that the time spent watching them blow glass was fabulous. I think any glass factory tour would be about the same--no need to buy this more expensive tour with the activity.

  • We were the only ones on our tour

  • 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.

  • The factory tour is free so the only thing that the fee went to was making a bracelet. This was very underwhelming

  • Very interesting watching glass blowing. Fun to make glass bracelet, earrings and mosaic in shop. Wonderful to see gallery of glass. No pressure to buy but plenty of time to admire beauty from small figurines to large chandeliers and statues. Truly amazing craft.

  • Outstanding guide.

  • I realize that we were visiting during the off season and my husband and I were the only ones on the tour but I felt this was a total waste of our money. We met our guide who I don't recall even told us his name at a most inconvenient location. We had to walk 15-20 minutes through the windy streets to take a boat to Murano extra 15 euros for that and then walk 10-15 minutes to the factory I don't understand why the meeting spot would not be closer to where we had to catch the boat. There was no conversation or tour getting there ... just followed the guide who was walking at a very fast pace. Once we got to the factory, we were sat down and we just watched a couple of people blowing glass and making glass pieces. Had I not asked questions there would have been no conversation at all. I don't know how sitting and watching a couple of guys can be considered a demonstration. Then we were walked through the show room to a small room to make our glass pieces. My husband and I both choose to make bracelets. We were rushed to finish them and then told we could go and shop in the show room. The show room attendant, and I don't remember his name, was very patient and helpful. We were then walked back to the boat had to pay another 15 euros and our guide left us. Very disappointed with the tour and I felt it was a total waste of money.

  • Very cool

  • Great

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