Okay, not great

I misunderstood the description as I thought this was going to be a small group tour. But it was only me. My guide spoke English but wasn't that easy for me to understand. Nonetheless she was friendly and talkative and I was grateful for the hotel pickup option. I didn't realize I would be on my own after the glass tour but the guide wasn't waiting as she said she would be when I was done so I wandered around on my own in Murano. For the price, I was expecting more and having lunch included would have been a bonus since the tour starts mid morning. But it wasn't, nor was it suggested we stop for a lunch break. This could be a fun tour with friends and a guide who had less of a strong accent but I'm not sure it was worth the cost.

Beautiful Murano

This was wonderful. Our guide was prompt and personable. The ride to Murano was great. We watched a “Maestro” make 2 separate pieces. Both were astonishing. We walked the galleries of the factory and found some beautiful pieces. We then walked Murano and saw several churches and the art they contained. It was a great trip.

Wonderful Muran Tour

Giovanna was exceptionally nice, honest, funny, helpful and interesting. The private tour in the glass factory was fascinating, and my kids got to try glassblowing. Francesco, the host at the factory, was also kind, funny and interesting, and although he was an excellent salesman, we did not feel pressured in our purchasing (but we definitely DID purchase some beautiful glassware!). Due to the high water levels, we did not go much further into the island, just walked a little along the edge for a bit while Giovanna told us more about the island. And water taxi was able to drop us off at a more convenient (and dryer!) spot on the return trip. All in all, definitely a fabulous morning.

The Tour was Great, The Hard Sell Afterwards Not so Fun

This was a wonderful experience until the very end. We had a lovely guide take us to Murano and the factory tour was exceptional. Watching the glass blowers create art right before your eyes was fascinating. Afterwards, you tour the showrooms and the sales pressure is a bit much. The pieces are beautiful but very costly. Prices are negotiable if you do see something you like.

We had a tour in Venice, but the whole thing was a bit confusing. We were old to meet at a hotel and when we went in to ask about the tour, a very unfriendly hotel clerk blew us off. We finally found a small kiosk outside of the hotel and get a tour. While the tour was good, it was not the tour I thought for which we had signed up. I think there was a couple of wires crossed... We are not giving up on Viator - we will give it another try in Rome and on out cruise. Stay tuned!
