I booked this trip through Viator which was really good as I only had to present to the pick up area and forget about the rest. Overall the tour was very informative and we got enough time on each island to take photographs and try the different restaurants. The guide was very helpful!
Excellent tour !! Guide was outstanding! So much to see! Well organized and very informative! Shouldn't be missed
Really good tour, I was aprehensive incase the trip to the Murano was just going to be a sales tour but we did not feel pressurised to buy anything at all, we watched a short glass blowing display which was really good then had half an hour to wander round the area. Burano was really nice, colourful street and so quiet. Torcello was beautiful too. A really good half day out which I would recommend
Really good value for money if you are short on time. Although the stops at each island are short it is enough time to see the main attractions.
Thoroughly enjoyable tour. No problems at all. Worked out cheaper than buying on the day.
Lovely tour, well organized however if I had the option I wouldn't have gone to Torcello
Wow - this was only a cheap half-day tour but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The trip covers boat travel between the three islands and allows for 3/4 hour on each island. This was more than enough for us on Torcello and, given that we went in November so it was dark by the end of the tour, was sufficient at Murano and Burano. There is a guide who provides a commentary but it is almost impossible to hear her. This did not spoil our enjoyment of the tour however and we saw far more than we could have done on our own in half a day.
Great experience! I wish we had a little bit more time at each island. Definitely recommend this tour if you do not have a lot of time in Venice.
I would highly recommend this tour. I wouldn't of know these islands existed without this tour! Took my 7 yr old son and he also enjoyed it. The guide told us lots of information of the islands in the lagoon. We spent 45 minutes on each island stop. I think less time could be spent on Torcello and more time on the other 2 islands as there is nothing on Torcello apart from a decaying monastery.
Definately worth booking. This trip is excellent for the price. Just be advised that when you get there outside the Royal Gardens to exchange your Viator Tour voucher at the ticket kiosk.. Instead of standing there for ages like I did waiting for a Viator rep to turn up ha-ha.
I only wish we had more time on Burano. It was so pretty and the small lace making shops were so lovely, I could have spent all day there. 15 - 20 mins should have been taken off from Torcello island, as there wasn't much to see or do there anyway.
Loved the little island of Torcello, wished we had a little more time there!
