    Dit is wat je kunt verwachten op Murano, een glasblazer die een paar glazen objecten maakt (vaas en beeldje), om vervolgens in de winkel te belanden. De verteller was grappig en enthousiast. In de winkel krijg je de kosten van het kaartje terug in korting. Door Covid zijn ze erg geraakt, dus hebben we glazen gekocht als aandenken. Indien je kiest voor de workshop, mag je vooraan zitten en ga je na afloop zelf een armbandje maken. (niet glasblazen natuurlijk, dat is voor professionals)

    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)
