Viator, do something about the aggressive sales people

A welcome change of pace. Everything was fantastic, but the salesman followed me all over the showroom repeating the same questions, "want to buy a vase, want to buy glasses, want to buy, want to buy"? I couldn't take it and ran out the door. I really wanted to buy glasses, but this wore me out. Too much walking, probably 2 miles total. Worth the visit!

Worst experience

We weren't sent the email with instructions. We tried to get to the glass factory ourselves. We got lost and spent forever trying to get there. Unfortunately, we were on the incorrect boat so we had to wait to get off. The guide kept calling and became upset with us even though we were trying so hard to get there. We finally made it and the guide stopped answering his phone. We didn't get any part of our experience and no refund. We were in Europe for 2 1/2 weeks and this was our only bad experience.

Not worth the money.

The glass blowing demo was amazing. It lasts for 5 minutes. The other 1.5 hours is a sales pitch. The “guide” who meets you is actually an employee of the company. Buy a taxi ticket to Murano, walk to the factory and ask to see a demo. They will do it for you.

Hello we are sorry you did not enjoy the tour. Actually you warched glass production for 25 minutes and you saw the complete process of 2 objects. In the workshop you sent 50 minutes or a bit less. The rest of the time you saw the art gallery with exibitiin It the glass factory There is no ibligation to buy or any tipe of pressure . Of course you can take a public boat by your own but will stay 1 hour in a crouded boat instead a local person that let you reach Murano in 10 minutes. The Colleaini glass factory is thebonly one that offer hands on workshop

Not special

Not a special experience. The guide was not very professional. The glass factory was a commercial Trapp and the workshop was nothing more than making a bracelet from beads. Transport with the vaporetto had to be paid for extra.

Was the perfect tour and experience. The ferry ride over was easy and fun. The glass blowing was so interesting. My teen and tween were captivated. The jewelry making was engaging. The guide was friendly and helpful. The guide at the factory was knowledge and took his time. Everyone was incredibly nice without being pushing about buying something. Overall was quite fun!
