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 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Run and informative tour. Three couples were led on a tour of the Jewish Ghetto district. Along the way, we stopped for wine and appetizers in three different bar type places. The guide was informative about the area history as well as the custom of cicchetti and wine. A really pleasant time was had by all
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
A great value - we went with a group of 9 and this was a fun day spent traveling to the little islands around Venice- it was well explained by the tour guides- we spent i believe 45 minutes at each island- Murano - we watched as a master glass blower created a vase and then a horse- so wonderful to see this work- Burano- the island with the brightly painted homes and the fantastic lace being made was delightful and then on to Torchello- quaint island that had a wonderful old church and a few little cafe's to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery
This is a great tour and the islands are a wonderful addition to your time in Venice. Alessandra was fantastic. do it but don't feel under any pressure to buy anything
A outstanding trip, highly recommend it, consider Asking about extending time on Burano by returning with the afternoon boat if they have space available . The glass factory is amazing, be sure to ask to go upstairs to view the art glass pieces.
Very enjoyable trip not expensive. Only downside was we would have like more time on the island of Burano as that was absolutely beautiful, and there did not seem much to do on Tocello. However all in all a very pleasant day.
Great overview of the Islands, although time on each one goes quick!
Worth it though.
This is a great tour for the money.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was well informed on the history and the story behind the ghetto. The regulars tops for the wine tasting was great. In addition we were part of a great group which made this tour one you should not miss
It was good.

Very good tour to give you a brief insight into each island, would have loved to have spent longer on each though.
Good alternative to 'mainland Venice'. Would recommend a longer stop than the 45 minutes at Burano. visit to Murano did seem like an arrangement to sell their glass
An awesome experience and a great deal, especially compared to some of the other tours. We had between 45-50 minutes on each island which was just enough to explore both Murano and Torcello. I could've stayed on Burano forever, but 45 minutes was sufficient for a taste of that quaint, colorful island as well. The reason I rated it a 4 instead of a 5 was because I couldn't really hear the guide when she was speaking over the speakers on the boat. It could've been where I was sitting back, but I have a feeling it would've been difficult anywhere because of the noise of the boat. Definitely make the trips to these islands, whether through this tour or on your own!
Good tour. As expected, the group is brought to a glass-making factory in Murano as well as a lace-making establishment in Burano. No real pressure to purchase anything in either place but these experiences are major components of the tour. The real gem was Torcello -- an island we knew very little about. The day was cold and rainy so we ducked into a wonderful inn for lunch. Sorry, I have forgotten the name but you can't miss it as you walk along the path toward the church. It is pretty far down the path on the lefthand side. Great paninis, coffee and dessert. Torcello itself feels so remote, quiet and spiritual, a very different experience from the other two islands. The brightly colored houses on Burano are a delight. We were told this was so that the sailors returning could easily spot their homes.
As the previous day trip had been cancelled we did this trip twice, ending up at different glassworks and lace outlets eaach visit. Both islands well worth the visits, more time at each would have been nice.
