Glad we did this tour . We have been to Venice several times but never visited Murano . This was too short and the shop was selling items that were cheaper in Venice ! Suggest you get your glass there . Torcello was enchanting - so peaceful and Burano is worth a day on its own . Cruising the lagoon was delightful as we enjoyed views which can't be seen from the land . The discount was worth having and good value .
Amazing place. Beautiful creations beautiful island. Nice people
We had no problems. Getting the voucher exchanged, and getting the boat was very easy and fast. We had a super time, and it was much cheaper than Princess cruise lines ticket
Wonderful tour, except the boat was too noisy, so much that we couldn't hear the Hostess clearly. The boat sounded like it was from the world war 2 era, unless you enjoy sailing in an antique.
Great tour would recommend it. Once you are on the boat starting your tour you are given a brief overview of what will happen and what you can do/see at each island, you have approximately 45 minutes on each island which is about the correct amount of time needed as the islands are not that large. Starting off with Murano you are shown to a glass manufacturing workshop and given a brief history of glass making and the history of Murano then a demonstration of making various articles followed up by a visit to the factory retail shop to purchase items if you wish. We opted out of the retail shop and visited the Church of San Pietro Martire a short 5 minute walk away which was very small pretty church (we are not religious but do appreciate the architecture and history of buildings). The next stop on the tour was the island of Torcello another small and quite island with the Basilica Di santa Maria.The final stop was the island of Burano where you could watch a lacemaking demonstration and if inclined to purchase some items in the retail shop, we opted out and just walked around this picturesque island with its small canals and brightly painted houses and grabbed a bite to eat and drink. The whole tour from start to finish lasted about 4. 1/2 hours which is just about the right amount of time.
Wonderful and informative tour of Venezia. We enjoyed our short stay in Venice.
Good experience and way to visit the main islands of the Venetian Lagoon. the visit to the glass factory in Murano is absolutely amazing! Burano is a beautiful town and the laces made by local women are something to admire. Torcello is very small. The church is the highlight of the town. Great tour and recommended.
This was a great tour
We both really enjoyed it
Would recommend it
Gave us an understanding about life in the Lagoon. Also seeing the diversity of the industry around Venice. It was especially magical to finish this trip when night was falling.
I really enjoyed this trip, Burano in particular is idyllic. I would recommend this sightseeing tour as something different to do whilst in Venice.
