Enjoyed this tour as we were mainly left to explore on our own which suited us. It wasn't easy to hear all the commentary on the boat however we weren't particularly worried about that.

Great tour! Great way to get out of the hustle and bustle of Venice and enjoy the surrounding islands.

The trip to Murano and Burano was our favorite part of our visit to Venice! The islands are beautiful and being able to see glass pieces made was amazing. My only suggestion would be that the time on Murano be extended. One hour didn't give us a chance to really explore outside of the factory but we took a vaporetto back a few days later and it was well worth the return trip.

We had a good time. Everything was punctual and the guide explained everything in advance. Well worth the trip.

We really enjoyed the whole day. The boat rides were smooth and the weather was beautiful. The guide told us about all the history on and off the boat. She was very impressive. The only negative is that it was too short. We wish we could have stayed an hour longer on each place

We enjoyed hearing some of the history around Venice, Murano and Burano. We could have easily spent a few hours at both Murano and Burano instead of 60-90 minutes they gave us. The glass blowing demonstration was somewhat interesting but I would give it a miss and head out to Murano straight away.
We left the glass factory immediately after the demonstration so we could at least see Murano. Well worth it. If you don't have a good sense of direction don't leave or you'll miss the ferry.
Burano was a delight and a photographer's heaven. We wandered the back streets to avoid the touristy areas.

Simply transportation...... constant stream of languages going by from guide was just noisy. Guide and boat captains seemed to get into a fight on the way back.... Would have liked more time in Murano.

I enjoyed it but it did feel rushed.

Murano was okay. The best island was Burano. Don't buy murano glass at murano island as the same glass is cheaper in Venice.
