Unfortunately I got horrible sea sickness and had to cancel the trip....I was so disappointed
For this price and you see all three islands and plenty of own time, nothing better than that.
A boat ride, glass making demonstration, needle lace-making demonstration and then a Byzantine church complete with wedding. An enjoyable tour which did not feel 'rushed' although only 45 mins spent in each attraction
Enjoyed the tour very much! Very good value. It would be nice to have longer in each place, but then it wouldn't be a half day trip. Prices in the Murano factory shop are quite high compared to the many shops you discover after leaving the factory.
Great tour - our guide Julia was very pleasant, informative, knowledgeable and helpful. Having an opportunity to see both islands as one tour was brilliant. Recommend this tour to everyone visiting Venice.
Doing what: Murano Glass and Burano Lace Tour from Venice
This tour was amazing, very good and cheap! Plus you get to see outside Venice as well! Amazing glass tour was really good to watch them make the glass and buy some thing after! Defo must do if you are going to Venice!
Best way to see Venice islands
Enjoyable trip but whilst enjoying the glass blowing felt pressured into buying by pushy sales force. We found some of the items cheaper in adjacent shops eg Horse paid 10 euros could have bought for 5. Never the less worth while trip.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It was well organised and the boat comfortable but the guide on the PA system was too loud and her voice irritating. Even after speaking with her, nothing changed. The weather was extremely hot and uncomfortable on the day, but this was out of your control.
It was very nice we took lots of pictures I would like to spend more time in burano there are lots of cafes to choose from and shopping. I would like to get some info on staying there over night.
The half day tour was most informative. It was perfect weather so the boat rides to each island was most enjoyable. The glass blowing demonstration on Murano was interesting. The lace demonstration on Burano was disappointing in that it was one lady sewing lace for 10 minutes. However the same shop had many different pieces of lace which enabled us to purchase a beautiful dedication dress for our six month old granddaughter. It was a good welcome to Venice on the day of our arrival. Well worth the price.
Tight schedule. Need more time on the islands.
