    Very good, fascinating guide, the essentials in a few hours. You have to go through the glassblower's shop, that's the game ... I would perhaps have preferred to have 10 minutes more free on the island. We loved it and had wonderful weather, we will have to come back to see these islands

    Great tour! Got to experience both island and had time to walk around and experience it. I was worried a glass blower wouldn’t be there on the weekend but we were lucky and had one. (I read from other reviews that sometimes they don’t have a glass blower on the weekends)

    Our guide was great! Such a wealth of information! It was nice to get out of the main city of Venice for a few hours and experience something a little different. The glass factory was beautiful and very interesting! Loved this tour, highly recommend if you have more than 1 full day in Venice!
