Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
When we got to the meeting point, we were early and got offered an earlier tour. We accepted the invite. It was just as described. We enjoyed this excursion very much. Our tour guide spoke good English and was explaining what is what. She did a very good job. The islands were very picturesque and enjoyable. In Murano glass factory everything is much more expensive than other stores. We have even seen their glass in stores in Venice for much less money. In Burano, we skipped the lace presentation and instead walked the street - very nice and worth it. In Torcello we enjoyed yummy cappuccino in a restaurant's garden. Wish we could stay longer. Viator advertises each stop 30-40 minutes, we were given 40 in Murano and 1 hour each on the other two islands. That was wonderful and we were very grateful for that. We did not feel rushed at all. This tour if bought at the kiosk by the pier was 20 Euros, which was almost what we paid via Viator. It was very well worth it. Thank you for very enjoyable morning and early afternoon.
Very good.way to see these three islands in a limited amount of time. We were late for our early morning tour and they very kindly added us to the next group. If you want more time on the last island, you can stay and take a vaparetto (water bus) back to San Marco instead of returning with the tour. Torcello is the oldest part of Venice and is worth exploring. It also had several nice restaurants, and only 12 permanent residents, so it has a different feeling from the rest of Venice. We really enjoyed this tour.
This tour combined both history and way of life/working conditions on these small islands. Great demonstrations of different crafts and opportunity to buy/ship orders. Unique artisan products. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful tour,interesting,well organised,comfortable trip.We would gladly have stayed in Burano longer .
I thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip to the three islands. I only took the tours because my friend wanted to go to Murano for the glass. I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful buildings and the history of Venice as well as the three islands. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Would recommend this trip. Well organised. Could wander around on the islands by yourself. All I'd say is could have done with a bit longer on Burano. Only get around 45 mins on each island but nice to see everything. A must for anyone visiting Venice. Found it easier than trying to get to the islands by myself. Tour guide very informative. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice for a few hours.
We enjoyed the shopping experience!!! The glass making demonstration was amazing!!!
Very happy to have scheduled this excursion I have already recommended your company to some friends going to Italy in late October!!!
Very happy how your company does tours!!!
Murano and Burano were excellent, but Torcello could be omitted, little to see there and more time spent in Murano.
