Samuel was an excellent guide. He was very flexible with our preferences and we spent more time on Burano eating lunch and cruising around the picturesque town. Our 9 and 11 year old were thoroughly entertained.

We loved visiting Murano and Burano and because we had children under 10, we appreciated the private tour which we could manage at our convenience. Our guide was informed and answered questions well. We recommend this tour.

Our private half-day tour of Murano, Burano, and Torcello was simply the best. We had a wonderful guide and the water taxi was very comfortable. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and made our day so interesting.

Stefania was a marvelous tour guide and we had a spectacular trip to visit these three places. The glassblowing demonstration was unbelievable, crafting s horse in front of us from molten glass. Burano is so picturesque and a great place to have lunch. Do not miss this wonderful tour.

Our guide was outstanding. She was very personable, knowledgable, and went 'above and beyond' to customize our experiences to meet our individual interests. We would highly recommend her to anyone visiting the islands of Murano and Burano.

Really a great tour! One on one time with the tour guide really made a world of difference.

The tour guide met us at the hotel foyer and right away we warmed to her chatty style and discussion about the day ahead. The private water-taxi arrived on time and we were off to Murano to the glass blowing tour. Murano is all about the beautiful Venetian glass and the private tour was fascinating and very personalized to our needs.

Next we off to Torcello (while the itinerary has Burano next we wanted to do that last). All the while we were travelling and during the walk about our guide was telling us about the history and recent news including Princess Diana's trips.

Burano is the colorful island with every house painted a bring and different color to it's neighbor. The lace shops were a bit pricey and predictable.

All together a very good tour of the islands and much better than the mass tours we had heard about.

Our tour guide was amazing and friendly and knowledgable. She took us to the tour sites on the different islands and gave us lots of stories, legends, and actual history about the different islands. The only reason we decided not to give this tour a 5 star is that we were taken aback at tourist trap pricing in the stores she took us to visit and go shopping in. We found similar items of equal quality at far lower prices elsewhere when we were on our own. So take the tour, have fun, but don't go shopping where they take you. Check your prices elsewhere...

It was great having a private tour as we got to experience the glass blowing up close like the groups don't get to do. Burano was quiet and very pretty. A great place for lunch. We skipped Torcello population 18 to give us more time on the other 2 islands which we thought was a good move. Our tour guide didn't have a lot of insight into the area, despite being Venetian, but he was a nice man and was pretty helpful.

Loved the islands! I wish we had some time on Murano and Burano to wander. The guide was okay but almost made us feel like he wasn't very interested in sharing his knowledge with us -- it was just a job to him.

3 star rating: Worth doing

If you appreciate the high touch treatment its worth doing. We really like the private boat ride and the opportunity to travel throug Venice and get a historical overview of the city. Murano was short, we visited a glass blower, they tried to sell us merchandise. Burano was a nice fishing village, it would have been great is we could have had lunch there. Torcello was an ancient ruin, it was OK. Our guide Barbara was very knowledgable. Our driver was impressive.

So if your interested in build Murano glass, you won't have time and frankly you can buy most of this elsewhere cheaper than at the source. I'd do a trip to Burano and have lunch if I were to do it again.
