Great day out!

Beautiful boat ride in beautiful weather. Talented guide who spoke at least 6 languages, tho I'd have preferred less talking to enjoy the scenery, but lots of nationalities to advise. Glass blowing was superb but would give the showrooms a miss; Instead we went for a stroll through the streets, plenty if glass for sale there if you want it and you get the scenery too. Lunch was perfect, restaurant was deceptive from outside, looked like a cafe but service was Excellent, food great even tho there was a very large birthday oarty in at the same time! You could probably do it cheaper by yourself but this was a very stress free day and worth the extra!!


It was a superb excursion. Only minor flaw: the meal was excellent but too fair at the "timing" we did not have enough time to visit because the boat was leaving.

Good and friendly organization, everything worked out. The glassblowing is just part of it, that's a maximum of 10 minutes. The price is ok for that.

Good but too short.

1/2 h extra at each stopover would be necessary. Good explanations of the guide. The restaurant quickly served us a decent meal.

Value for money

Excellent day out and great lunch. Well worth it!!!
