Well worth booking. The glass factory on Murano is really neat. The artists are so incredibly talented and seeing glass blown in the traditional way is very impressive. Burano is absolutely beautiful. With a much more laid back feel than Venice and the candy coloured fisherman's houses, this was my favorite island of the three. Torcello doesn't have a lot on it other than the ancient church. However, it is a nice quiet break from the mainland. The inside of the church is gorgeous, but there are separate entrance fees for the church interior, the bell tower, and the museum so I only did the church interior.
fantastic tour well worth visiting the islands very interesting and a great way to see around Venice

It was an amazing experience even tough it was cold...Wish we could spend more time in the Glass blowing factories on Murano. Torcello was a waste of time as far as I am concerned as there was absolutely nothing to see but the church...we did not have time to stop for a coffee at some of the small places on Torcello.
But all being said it was only a half day so It is recommended .
Was lovely to get a chance to see the 3 lovely islands.
Seeing the glass blowing on Murano Island was very interesting, we din't see any lace making on Burano Island but there were other interesting shops etc to look at.
These places are all amazing, so to give visitors 30-40 minutes at each is not worth the effort. At Torcello, there was a line to get tickets to the church, so I had at most 10 minutes inside before having to walk back to the boat. There seems to me to be no reason why the company doesn't add 2-3 hours to the tour to enable more time to visit each place. I think we spent more time on the boat than actually visiting the islands.
It was interesting to see the glass blowing demonstration on the island of Murano and we enjoyed sampling the local biscuits and walking around the picturesque island of Burano but you could probably do this tour yourself by just jumping on the public ferries.
Very poor. Take a good tour instead. This one is the cheapest. Get a different one!
I truly enjoyed this quaint tour on the beautiful islands. I had such a peaceful day marveling at the beauty each island had. Great tour!
Really enjoyed this trip. I thought it was great value for money and everything on the day was well organised.
The meeting point and tour guide were easily located. She was lovely and knowledgeable.
This was another tour I was grateful allowed solo travellers to take part in. Murano was very interesting and it was cool to see the process of the glass blowing and hear some of the history behind it. It was interesting to note that although many stores in Venice claim to sell Murano glass, it was not real Murano glass. The factory's showroom was lovely - full of beautiful art albeit a little pricey. There are some other shops outside of the factory though that were even cheaper than in Venice, although I know it was not the Murano glass I was buying, I was still happy with purchases there.
Burano was an unexpected highlight. The houses were beautifully coloured and it was nice to meander through the less busy streets and enjoy the feel of Venice and see the scenery. There was a short, but interesting explanation about the dying art of Burano lace, which was more intricate and complex than I expected.
This was a nice way to spend the afternoon and see more than just the main cluster of islands that is Venice.

The highlight of my trip to Italy was visiting the tiny island of Torcello at sunset.
This was a brilliant tour - not to be missed.
We had such a good time on this tour. It was well worth the money!!
It was great. We were so glad that we went.
This was an amazing tour!!! The islands are beautiful, it was well organised, totally well worth a trip, excellent value for money - totally recommend it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great way to see three different islands and definitely recommend to all those new to Venice. Although one of the tourists decided to skip Torcello. Yes it doesn't have the lace or bead making but definitely gives you the experience of a more remote beautiful island.
Well organised and just enough time at each Island.
excellent tour. just needed more time in Burano and Torcello
