Andrea should do all of the Murano tours - wow - he is amazing!! He grew up on Murano so knows everyone and all of the hidden gems there. Simply amazing tour. Very personalized, he is so knowledgeable, and he knows how to keep my boys engaged 100%!! He had lots of insights and knowledge about everything Murano. We would take any tour that he is offering - a true gem!! And we can be difficult critics, so this means a lot coming from us!
We are so impressed with Context Tours! We had one tour in Athens, and four scheduled in Venice. At this writing, we had thoroughly enjoyed the four tours we've taken, so far. Each guide is steeped in their area of knowledge and passionate to share history, culture, aesthetic and ideas. We particulary appreciate the quick and complete communication with Context Tours. Emails are answered immediately. Well organized and well executed!
We had a wonderful day, thanks to Andrea's introduction to Murano and the glass industry there. He also willingly answered'many of'our other questions about Venice. Yes, we could have gone to Murano on our own, but we would have missed so much!
