5 Star Tour!

This is a fantastic tour - highly recommend. We were picked up by a private water taxi and enjoyed a historically informative ride to Murano. We had our two little kids with us, and Ketty was very accommodating and engaging.
The short walk around Murano was beautiful. We enjoyed learning about the island, the history of glass blowing, and walking by the shops. The glass blowing factory tour was so cool! Seeing a horse figurine made out of glass in a matter of minutes is truly incredible. At the end, you exit through a showroom which had different styles and forms of glass blown art. The sales team is a little pushy, but that is to be expected :)
After the tour, Ketty recommended a great restaurant and went on her way. We really enjoyed being part of a private tour and learning about Venice and Murano from our guide!

Selena was an excellent guide!! A microphone for her on the boat would be nice so everyone could hear her. So much history and information. We really enjoyed the grand canal tour and watching the master blowing glass at Murano!!
See the Grand Canal!

Private tour along Grand canal with tour guide was a lovely ride with lots of history about Venice. Small group glass blowing demonstration was very nice and its a family business!
Wonderful way to get out of the crowds!

This 3 hour boat tour was a great way to get away from the crowds for a few hours and get out in the open water. The trip to the Murano glass workshop was a fun destination! Gianluca was a wonderful guide! He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel by private water taxi and the tour was at our pace.
Would pass on this.

The Grand Canal tour was good, but the rest was just so-so. The glass making demonstration lasted only about 10 minutes. The rest was browsing in their showroom. Unless you are interested in buying glass, I would skip. The boat ride back on the public boat bus lasted longer than the tour.
