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!
