On our Private Venice Boat Tours to Murano Island, in the company of one of our expert guides, you'll visit a celebrated Glass factory on the Island of Murano where you'll see a Glass-blowing demonstration and also have the opportunity of purchasing Murano Glass. For this tour we have selected a workshop, where you can see examples of glass blowing while learning the process involved in making the world famous Murano Glass.

You'll then have the chance to visit the showroom, where you can see on display fabulous creations made by the prestigious Masters of Murano.

Being a private tour, our expert guide can adapt the tour to your needs; therefore if there is a particular glass workshop you'd like to visit, let us know at the time of booking and we'll try and make arrangements for you.

We had Christina as our tour guide. She was amazing! At the end of the tour it felt like we had made a friend in Venice. The tour of the Grand Canal was informative and interesting and the side canals were beautiful. The glass shop on Murano blew our minds. We did not know you could do that with glass. After the glass shop Christina took us around the village and showed us little shops and helped us order cappuccinos. The Italian cappuccinos are the best in Europe so far. This tour is a must go on and please make Christina the tour guide for ALL tours!

My family and I took the Murano tour with Christina last weekend. She was
fantastic- very knowledgeable and great with the children. We highly recommend her to anyone traveling to Venice. Looking forward to returning!

We had a most rewarding afternoon in the company of our guide, Cristina, who gave us the benefit of her wide knowledge about Venice, Murano and the glass industry. Although we booked at the last minute, every effort was made to accommodate us. Thank you
