Best experience!

Was the perfect tour and experience. The ferry ride over was easy and fun. The glass blowing was so interesting. My teen and tween were captivated. The jewelry making was engaging. The guide was friendly and helpful. The guide at the factory was knowledge and took his time. Everyone was incredibly nice without being pushing about buying something. Overall was quite fun!
Visit to Murano

We really enjoyed our tour. The craftsmen were amazing and we were able to make some jewelry from glass beads made at the factory. Amazing Artisans
Must see tour in Murano
, Oct 2019
The glass factory in Murano is something everyone should see. The artistic quality of the products is fantastic. Seeing in person how they make these fine pieces of art is a great experience.

Just a high priced tourist trap to subject you to pressure sales tactics.
, Oct 2019
A total joke and waste of time and money. Just an excuse to get you on their sales room and try to force you to buy something. The worst tour I have ever been on.
A Wonderful Experience
, Sep 2019
We had a great tour guide who walked us through Venice to get to the Murano water taxi and gave us interesting facts and overview as we went along. And the folks at the Murano Glass Factory were very personable and interested in us having a great experience. Lots of fun! Not too mention the beautiful glass works.
Basic tour, exactly as it says in the description

Fine, basically what it says on the description. A guide meets you at the meeting point, helps guide you onto the right water-bus then leaves as you get to the factory. Then a short time watching a glass maker make a horse and a cup, then onto the craft station. Very basic, a quick arts and craft thing, threading beads onto glass, probably more targeted at the under 12 crowd, unfortunately they weren't keen for you to leave once down, so i ended up wasting a bit of time -over 15 min- waiting for others to finish, before they show you to the show room and then you can leave. Showroom seemed over priced, even with the 20% discount, that was the same as other glass makers in the area. The glass making episode was also the same as you can get for 3 Euro in all the other factories, so it seemed a bit over priced for the rather ordinary beading session, but if you are really nervous about navigating the water-buses, having someone to explain it is very helpful, and the guide was very good about that.
