Andrea was amazing!! Born and raised in Murano- he knows the history of the glass factories and the island but more importantly he knows everyone there which allowed us lucky access to a few places not normally open to the public. He knew the best values in glass if you want to purchase and where to get items from true artisans. Through Andrea we got a fun and informative education of the island and the glass making history and today. All the while having a fantastic time! percent recommend!!!
Guide was good, very pleasant.
Matteo was great--knowledgeable, and able to roll with the punches. We greatly appreciated his help in arranging a visit to the Tagliapietra home
