    The tour took place at the booked time. The craftsman produced several objects, while a collaborator explained the various procedures and stories related to the glassworks. Later we visited the exhibition and we were able to deduct the total of the ticket from the purchases made. Overall a good experience which I recommend to anyone.

    Excellent glass blowing demo but factory tour was just the showroom

    We really enjoyed the glassblowing part of the tour but the ‘factory tour’ was just viewing their (admittedly lovely) glassware. You do get a good discount on anything you want to buy but I was expecting something different from the factory tour (I thought we’d learn more about the materials etc)

    A lovely little tour in a glass factory and an amazing opportunity to observe a master artisan at work only a few steps away. Our guide Giovanni was lovely, gave us lots of interesting explanations and kindly answered all our questions in detail. Also the price of the tour was entirely discounted from our purchases at the end of the tour.
