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.
Good tour around the islands, enough time to look around and also take in offered activities, great commentry, staff helpful.
Fantastic tour, great price.. Glass factory was way too expensive...
Good Knowledgeable guide. Easy pace and fairly well timed for visit of each island. This tour company has many bugs worked out. This was the perfect way to visit these islands. Boat crew were on top of safety and helpful!
This tour was fantastic. Sorry I can't remember our guides name but she was very good at what she does. (It's been a long 2 weeks). Murano with its beautiful hand made glass is something not to be missed. Be sure to go into the factory for a glass blowing demonstration, it was amazing. Burano was another fantastic experience, with the beautifully painted fishermans homes and the homemade lace. Take a lot of pictures of these homes as they were beautiful. Torcello was nice but could not really compare to the other islands. At $26.00 you can not beet this tour.
