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.
This cruise offers an excellent overview of the thee islands. Burano and Torcello are particularly enjoyable because there there is a lovely walk into town along the canal, and there are small restaurants/cafes both on the walk and in town to sit down, enjoy the setting and have a refreshing drink. Murano is a short stay and includes one factory only. There was no chance to see the town or to investigate other places to buy Murano glass. Recommended
DELIGHTFUL to say the least! We had just the right amount of time on each island to get a taste of its local flavor and visit the sites. The glass blowing demonstrations were awesome and the lace stores were fun to explore, but just walking around in Burano, looking at all of the brightly colored houses was my favorite. Torcello was a really unique island....it felt like stepping back in time on this peaceful little island as we saw the amazing ancient church and courtyard. Each island was unique in its own way, and less crowded than the city of Venice. We are so glad we chose this tour!
Loved it! Such a great tour. It gives you a great view of all the islands and the history of all the islands
Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and her English was good.
She was very helpful and understanding when we forgot our camera on Murano.
The ability to see the craft of glas making was fascinating. Seeing the wide variety of these handmade art objects was breathtaking. The lace making on Burano was also impressive. it is so great to see the skill involved and know the art is not being lost. Highly recommend this tour!
Far too brief for such tranquil settings. An excellent introduction... But if you like it that much, it's easy to simply take the vaporettos (water bus) to these islands on you own later to take more time to explore. It's well worth the time away from the crowds.
Really enjoyed this tour. The time in Torcello does not add value in the current tour.Would suggest that to add value, extra time is added with an optional lunch.
Would have been better if you had more time at each island ,the tour would have been better if the guide was English speaking only .the tour we were on was mixed English and Italian
Best 20 euros we spent all holiday.. better than the 34 euro we spent on 4 coffees in St Marks Square... LOL.. Tour was fantastic.. Knowledable guide, clean boat, just the right amount of time in each place..
A wonderfull day visiting these amazing palces and a great shopping experience
Wonderful day trip. We enjoyed the beauties these 3 islands have to offer. The gem was Torcello as it was so serene and simple. We had an excellent picnic lunch and definitely recommend this tour.
The tour itself was very nice, also enjoyed the boat ride and views. The only caution is that the vendors at Murano Island ripped us off. They charge almost double for the same item that you can buy in Venice. They had dropped their price from 100 euro to 80 euro and we bought the glass piece. The exact same item was in a store front along one of the streets in Venice for 47 euro. I couldn't easily return it due to having to pay for another ride over to the island. I suggest not buying glass items from Murano and waiting until you get back into Venice.
