This trip was excellent value for money. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. It gave us a taste of the life on each of the islands. On future trips we can now go back to visit for a little longer. Recommend this trip to anyone.
Really fun and quick tour for people that just wanna see what's what.
Beautiful tours, stops were short, not enough time to leisurely stroll the villages.
Was a good way to see the islands and get away form the crowds but Torcello Island was a waste of time - would have been better to spend more time on Murano and Burano and cut the third island out. The reason we went on this tour was to buy Glassware and Lace but we didn't really get much time to shop. Because the tour covered 4 different languages the Tour Guide commentary was a bit annoying - it would have been better if we had head-sets and could select our language instead of having to listen through a lot that we didn't understand and we had to really pay attention to when she got to English.
Nice way to spend Half a day, a little disappointed with Murano Glass
This tour was amazing!
Very interesing tour
Lovely trip, great value for money, interesting information about some of the small islands.
The islands are well worth visiting.
This was a fun and informative tour. Ricardo was great - patient, engaging and well-informed. The small group size enabled us to get to know each other a bit and enjoy the evening.
Excellent and informative excursion
This was a very informative tour and our guide did a very good job. I was a little disappointed that there was a 15 fee to change the date. It was pouring down rain the day we were to tour and we changed the date. There was not way to pay the fee except by ccard and there was no way to email it to the company through a secure site or email. We had a phone plan that charged by the minute and we did not want to use this. They would not allow us to pay the guide and so the guide called them when we arrived and we clarified the situation. Fun tour and good information given about the Ghetto also. Jack and Carolyn/Dallas

Excellent tour - we really enjoyed it. Yummy food and very good wine. Really gives you a taste of Venice while learning about the history of the Jewish Ghetto. A good substitute for dinner. Our guide was knowledgeable and easy going. We really enjoyed this tour.

This tour was a quick way to see the islands with some overall history of the areas. Unfortunately it was pouring down rain and it made it a little more difficult to see and enjoy. But great tour.
, Riccardo was very knowledgeable of the area we had good time
Will do it again if back to Venice. Grazie Riccardo
Wonderful tour. Not rushed, excellent guide.
Great experience of the islands. Very informative excursion on the life and cultures of Italy.
This is a fun tour if you want to see the different islands spread out around Venice you wouldn't see otherwise. It's a long one, so be prepared to take along a few snacks and water in case you get hungry.
On Murano and Burano, you're given a brief demonstration of what each island is known for as soon as you land. On Murano, you're given an interesting demonstration by their skilled glass blowers while on Burano, you get to see their impressive lacework. Afterwards you can explore the shops for a brief window of time. I suggest checking out the other shops first before making a purchase, but there's plenty to choose from if you like to shop. Torcello has no shopping, but beautiful church ruins that you can explore at your leisure.
The guides were fine, but it's difficult to hear them while out on the boat traveling from place to place. Still, you'll see many beautiful locations, so don't let that deter you from enjoying the boat ride. And best of all, each island takes you away from the crowded streets of Venice while still enjoying why people everywhere want to visit this stunning city.
Really easy to find pick up point,lovely to see scenery on the boat between the islands,good tour guide.
Mutano was good to see the glass blowing,but not much else there except glass shops,was okay though as you only get half hour there, then onto Burano....wow what a lovely island,I could have stayed there for hours,very pretty with lots of bars and shops,stalls,and more of a leisurely pace than the crazy Venice. Also picked up a few different pieces from here.
Torcwllo was a waste of time,unless you want to see the church after a long walk there is nothing there. I would rather have just done the first two and it would have been a perfect trip.
You have to do it though,for the price is is excellent value.
This tour was a great value for the money from the glass blowing in Murano to the brief lace making info in Burano. Torcello was like a beautiful, huge park and a nice respite from the retail on the other two islands. We loved all three islands included. The commentary was adequate and there was enough free time on each.We would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour. Would have liked more time in Burano. No time wasting which was great, informative.Value for money.
We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day so the tour was a nice, leisurely afternoon out. The guide was very informative about the surrounding islands we passed as well as the islands we visited which was really nice.
This was a great trip. Be ready when they say the boat leaves at 2pm, be there by 1:55pm they do not wait. I could have spent more time in Murano, and Burano and a little less in Torcello. Great trip! Highly recommend.
