Sara was just delightful and so knowledgeable. We will come back and use her next time
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Nadia. Would highly recommend her
Chiara was so nice and showed it was wonderful to see glass being made. She was patient while we were making a glass purchase and just lovely to be with during the morning.
