Loved both locations. Glass maker was awesome! Boat ride was interesting.
Great tour. Our guide was wonderful and the visits to both islands were very informative. We had a great water taxi driver who maneuvered us back thru the lagoon in a thunderstorm, which was exciting. Enjoyed very much.
Francesca, our guide, was great. Informative and energetic. The boat ride was pleasant and she spoke off and on the entire time explaining about the areas. We arrived in Murano and did the glass tour. This was a sunday, so most of the town and factories were closed. It was ok and I don't need to return. Then onto Burano which turned out to be this lovely village with quaint shops. Could have spent more time in Burano. Loved the lace store and found the local markets to be awesome. All in all a great tour!
AMAZING - Alessandra was an outstanding tour guide and we had a blast visiting the two islands. It was a small group which is so nice and we learned so much about the glass and lace factories. The islands are beautiful and it was so nice to see the picturesque scenery! Would highly recommend!!
Our guide Francesca fantastic so knowledgable and engaging . She is a Venetian so has a great passion for Venice. I learnt so much. My favourite the island of Burano just so special
Great day touring the islands and making a few lovely purchases.

The glass and lace were beautiful and the boat ride was wonderful. It was unfortunate that the factory is closed on Sunday, so we didn't get to the see the working factory.
Well worth the money spent. The Murano glass factory artists were amazing. Burano island is a small,beautiful, picture postcard like area. Make sure you go to the gelato place in Burano- by far the best in Italy. Our guide was superb!
Lovely tour taking us out onto the lagoon and giving us a glimpse of Venice from a distance. We visited the amazing Glass Blowers in Murano, saw some glass being blown and marvelled at the creations on display. Then it was off to Burano to see the interesting art of lace-making and to spend time at leisure enjoying this pretty island. Our guide was so knowledgeable and gave us a great insight into Venice's history and also how important these crafts are to the islands. A great tour!
Roberta was an excellent guide. Took us to places in Burano besides the lace making location. Murano glass factory and showroom were amazing. Worth the day trip by boat.
When in Venice this one is your must do not to be missed tour.....you will love Burano with its colourful houses. We fell in love with it. But you also have to bring a little spending money as the local glassware and lace products are just too beautiful to pass by.....
We had a great time and loved Burano the best!
Our guide Franchesca was fantastic and very knowledgeable. She enhanced our stay in Venice!
Our tour guide Francesca was quite knowledgeable of the area on the way to the Murano glass factory. It was fascinating to watch them blow the glass and make figurines. Then it was onto the gift shop, where one can do a lot of damage in a very short time. Other then the factory there really is not much else to do. Then it was onto Burano, to watch the older generation make lace which is a dying art. Burano is beautiful! Loved it! It was a quaint and quite charming! It was away from all the hustle and bustle of the main area of Venice. Would love to go back to Burano!
Fantastic - well organized tour - boat ride to Murano was enjoyable. Glass making demonstration was interesting and there was no pressure from the store to buy anything. Burano was low key and had minimal crowds which was nice. Nice leisurely afternoon strolling the canals - very colorful island
We had a great time! our tour guide was knowledge and friendly. we learned so much about Venice and the surrounding islands. Highly recommend it!!
Fantastic tour loved BURANO Island and MURANO glass factory but the two tour ladies were great and informative nice casual approach
The Burano Island was beautiful!!! The tour was great! The best part of our trip to Venice!
Loved this tour. Perfect length to see both islands, and nice boat trip there and back. Our tour guide was super informative and friendly, seemed to really enjoy her job. No pressure to buy at any of the featured factories/stores. A great way to spend the afternoon!
