We were a family of 5 (kids were 16, 10, 4) and LOVED every minute of this tour. Antonella was AMAZING! Very informative and included the kids in conversation. It was a small private group which was nice with COVID restrictions. Masks on the whole tour. Just enough time on Murano to have a tour of the glass factory. Wish we had a little more time on Burano as there was more to see and do there. But we were able to meet with the lace lady in action, wander the streets to find cookies, quick lunch, gelato, and pics.
Brilliant lesson. Massimiliano was very friendly and gave a great history of the glass making process and showed us how he creates such beautiful pieces by making one in front of our eyes. A piece that we brought and will cherish as a memory of our trip. He then let us create our own small pendant. He was very patient and showed us the best and safest techniques. A great experience and well worth the money.
Really enjoyed this activity. Massimilliano gave a quick recap of the history behind glass making and how it was moved to the island of Murano which was very interesting and then he demonstrated several techniques before making a figurine. Best bit though was when I got to try making things myself. Highly recommend doing this activity.
It was a great and convient tour and both towns were beautiful but it was very difficult to understand the guide when she spoke in English.
Absolutely excellent experience, one of the highlights of our holiday. Definitely recommend!
