We enjoyed the whole day. Stephano helped us with background info of the area, answered questions and took good care. We had a bit of a struggle finding the meeting place, but we made it. Highly recommend this tour!

Francesca was an amazing tour guide, and incredibly knowledgeable. She led a very fun experience. The wineries visited were both amazing as well

Very good value for money, but long walk from meeting point to boat. Rather have longer time in murano than bologna

We had an amazing day was easy to find meeting point and lovely friendly guide.

All good, nice experience. Time in glass factory could be reduced.
