    I loved the experience! They showed us how to work glass in Spanish. The experience included a demonstration of the making of a glass and a glass bull made on the spot by a glass craftsman. They told us how glass is colored and the different techniques. After the demonstration, what was paid for the activity remains as a credit to spend in the local product store. The prices in this store are overpriced (I found much better prices elsewhere). Can someone tell me that the other stores may have lower prices because perhaps they are industrial products... I don't know... but hey, keep this in mind to know what to buy and what not.

    Always impressive to watch the glass masters! Explanations in French as expected. Nice shop, we offer you 40% discount on large pieces and we had a 20 euro voucher at the end. Either all the tickets paid for the visit…. The children were delighted, they were able to leave with little souvenirs!

    Adequate explanation, as expected. I do not give 5 stars because I hired a visit in Spanish and it was in English, when I arrived they asked me "english or french", without the option of Spanish. It started 10-15min later than planned. But for the rest the workers are very friendly and willing.
