This was a great trip. I could have spent more time in Murano, and Burano and a little less in Torcello. Great trip! Highly recommend.This is a fun tour if you want to see the different islands spread out around Venice you wouldn't see otherwise. It's a long one, so be prepared to take along a few snacks and water in case you get hungry.
Amazing half day out was very well organised and executed would definitely recommend to a friend and would do again when next in Venice!
The 3 islands are great to visit, I wish we hand more time on each one
Great trip to three very different islands, all with their own charms.
This was a great trip. Be ready when they say the boat leaves at 2pm, be there by 1:55pm they do not wait. I could have spent more time in Murano, and Burano and a little less in Torcello. Great trip! Highly recommend.
Excellent tour. Would have liked more time in Burano. No time wasting which was great, informative.Value for money.
We were lucky enough to have a beautiful day so the tour was a nice, leisurely afternoon out. The guide was very informative about the surrounding islands we passed as well as the islands we visited which was really nice.
Really easy to find pick up point,lovely to see scenery on the boat between the islands,good tour guide.
Mutano was good to see the glass blowing,but not much else there except glass shops,was okay though as you only get half hour there, then onto Burano....wow what a lovely island,I could have stayed there for hours,very pretty with lots of bars and shops,stalls,and more of a leisurely pace than the crazy Venice. Also picked up a few different pieces from here.
Torcwllo was a waste of time,unless you want to see the church after a long walk there is nothing there. I would rather have just done the first two and it would have been a perfect trip.
You have to do it though,for the price is is excellent value.

This tour was a great value for the money from the glass blowing in Murano to the brief lace making info in Burano. Torcello was like a beautiful, huge park and a nice respite from the retail on the other two islands. We loved all three islands included. The commentary was adequate and there was enough free time on each.We would highly recommend this tour.
Great experience of the islands. Very informative excursion on the life and cultures of Italy.
This is a fun tour if you want to see the different islands spread out around Venice you wouldn't see otherwise. It's a long one, so be prepared to take along a few snacks and water in case you get hungry.
On Murano and Burano, you're given a brief demonstration of what each island is known for as soon as you land. On Murano, you're given an interesting demonstration by their skilled glass blowers while on Burano, you get to see their impressive lacework. Afterwards you can explore the shops for a brief window of time. I suggest checking out the other shops first before making a purchase, but there's plenty to choose from if you like to shop. Torcello has no shopping, but beautiful church ruins that you can explore at your leisure.
The guides were fine, but it's difficult to hear them while out on the boat traveling from place to place. Still, you'll see many beautiful locations, so don't let that deter you from enjoying the boat ride. And best of all, each island takes you away from the crowded streets of Venice while still enjoying why people everywhere want to visit this stunning city.

This tour was a quick way to see the islands with some overall history of the areas. Unfortunately it was pouring down rain and it made it a little more difficult to see and enjoy. But great tour.
Lovely trip, great value for money, interesting information about some of the small islands.
This tour was outstanding. Well worth the price. The boat intercom/public address system was a little difficult to understand at times but I have low expectations of those sound systems so it didn't bother me.

SO WORTH IT! Murano: glass and Burano: lace. WORTH IT. Torcello is take it or leave it, truthfully. The tour is 4 hours, no less, roundtrip. That's approx 1 hour on each island which is barely enough time but worth it! The churches on Torcello cost extra to enter so although my shoulders and knees were covered, there was no need since we didn't want to pay extra to enter. Be warned also that in Venice they sell the same Murano glass items for same prices or cheaper. However, the lace in Burano is hard to come by and worth it!
Loved Murano glass and even bought a lovely piece. Being out in the boat was great too.
