Our Tour on August 6 was perfect. We had a nice tourguide and 2 nice companions from the UK. The information about the Jewish Ghetto was very interesting. The 3 stops at the local bars with cicchetti were perfect stops to sit for a little, drink a sip of wine and talk about lots of stuff. Thank you!
the only downside was finding the office to meet our guide but we arrived in plenty of time. it was the best 4 hours and the tour was tailored for us and went at our pace. yes it was expensive but it was so good i'd recommend it in a heartbeat.
A great way to see all 3 of these smaller islands and to get a good sense of the geography of the lagoon. Nice cool breeze whilst on the boat, very good tour guide, not too intrusive but very informative. The glass-blowing was good to see if you haven't seen it before, but if we were going again we might skip that and have a wee look at the rest of Murano. Our 2 kids 11 and 14 weren't too keen on the idea of the trip at first but they really enjoyed it as well.
Delightful stroll in areas I wouldn't otherwise have visited, terrific leader, delicious cicchetti at places I would never have found on my own. The tour members remained chatting and several of us walked back to our hotels together. A good taste of the culture of Venice.

Made me love Venice. Been 3 times in winter and not too impressed. This tour gets you out on a boat, seeing Venice by sea, plus 3 beautiful, unique islands. Next time we will choose a private tour. Boat was crowded and hot. 45 min per island winds up being very rushed. Still enjoyed the experience!
Great guide and good timing for all of the activities included in the tour.
Bernadette was a really wonderful, friendly tour guide who spoke English very well and was kind, fun and communicative. She looked after us very well. It was a great start to my 6 day visit to Venice. I went back the next day to the Jewish ghetto area to take a closer look at art galleries, shops and restaurants that Bernadette had pointed out. I really enjoyed eating and drinking with the other group members. A very pleasant evening. I highly recommend this tour.The main thing is that it shows you the kind of place to look for for cheap wine, coffee and bar snacks. It was also here that I first came across the fried orange balls of rise: Arancia di Riso. These make a good supper substitute, with a few cicchetti bar snacks, which will save you dining out . After the tour I felt more confident to choose the local bars and know that the snacks are good value, fresh and tasty and won't make you sick! Leave plenty of time to get there. Crossing venice can take two or three times as long as you think. Two people missed our tour. I was nearly late, and the company had phoned me to see if I need help getting there which impressed me. We went to the lovely quiet back waters - such a delight. This tour was one of the best parts of my trip to venice
The tour was good for its price! If you're staying in Venice you absolutely have to see these three little islands. They mostly let you wonder around each place for about an hour or so and you can decide what to do with your time which is nice :
Murano glass factory was excellent.
Burano is a great island stop.
Torcello was just okay.
Great experience seeing the other islands - could have a bit more time on Burano
Very recommended tour. The guide spoke several languages which was a plus.
This tour was amazing and I highly recommend it. Lovely food and wine and you really learn how the Venetians eat. Our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and all the food. Great fun.
Our tour guide was wonderful.

Very enjoyable tour of the three islands. The tannoy system on the boat should be louder, as it was difficult to hear some of the information the guide was giving us. We were only taken to the glass factory and shop in Murano, no time to see anything else, which was a disappointment. Burano was lovely and would have liked to have more time there. Torcello was very small, not too much to see, but we had a lovely cocktail in the gardens of a very nice hotel. All in all a very good trip and good value for money.
Great tour, but when you get to Torcello, go see church, don't get suckered into sitting at the restaurant, you then will not have enough time to see the church
Third island, nothing to do but walk to sandwich shop, no time to investigate any of the buildings.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and we did recommend it to family members who did take the same tour a week later.
This tour was a wonderful experience to see the spectacular products of Murano the pleasant walk through Burano, and the interesting history of Torcello - but we felt the tour was a little rushed. What happened to the walk advertised for Murano island? We were not given the time or the option. And there was no guide accompanying the group around Torcello, and we were surprised to have to pay to go inside the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, thinking our voucher covered that. However, all in all very interesting and worthwhile. Although we purchased a voucher with Viator beforehand, the price was no cheaper than buying on the spot in Venice, i.e. 20 Euros.
A value for money tour. I could have spent more time in Murano and Burano, both fascinating places.
