Thought we would do this trip having had an outstanding experience with Viator in Rome. Sorry but this trip was very disappointing. There was no Viator rep only one guide for almost 120 people. As it was a lovely sunny day, we opted to sit out on deck but couldn't hear a word of the commentry because of the noise of the boat's engine First stop Murano for 30 minutes, most of which was taken up by watching a glass blowing demonstration (very crowded) and then being herded into the shop which left approx. 10 minutes to look round Murano. Next stop Torcello. again only 30 minute stop, it took almost 10 minutes to walk to the churches which again only left us about 10 minutes to see the churches. The original one is really beautiful and well worth going to see but at 5 euros entrance for a visit of just over 5 minutes!!!!! Again at Burano only a 30 minute stop so we decided not to do the tour of the lace shop and wander round on our own for the VERY limited time. It looked very picturesque. Burano and Torcello definitely worth a visit but for longer than 30 minutes and without over a hundred other people!!!! If you want to hear the commentry DONT sit outside on the boat. We told the guide at Murano that we hadn't heard any of the commentry but it made no difference.
