Yes, we were “guided” right off the boat, but this glass factory was a good place to see a demo and buy a souvenir. Hard to tell if other places were better or worse. Prices and quality looked good to me!More

It was really interesting watching the craftsmen handle the glasswork so well. The service in the store right next to the workshop was excellent and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our visit and can only recommend this place :)

Was raining outside so we were looking for indoor activities. Ended up watching the 10 minutes demonstration about glass blowing and was very interesting and very well commented. Nice pics in the shop as well !
