John Luca was a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. We enjoyed this trip to visit the beautiful islands of Murano and Burano. Very nice tour!

There were only ten of us on this tour. The skies were overcast but it did not rain. The tour guide was very good. She was very informative and walked at a slow pace pointing out landmarks as we walked around Murano. The glass factory was neat. Watching the master glass blowers make vases and small animals was the highlight of the trip. We had time to shop in the glass factories store and I was able purchase glassware for my children.

Loved this tour!!! The guide was great and the boat drivers were excellent and very helpful! We learned a lot about the 2 islands and enjoyed our time there as well as the travel between the islands. My only issue comes with the way this tour is listed on Viator. It does say it is wheel chair accessible and the boat pictured looks as if it might be. However, we traveled on local type small boats - not as pictured - so the drivers had to lift my chair into/out of the boats after I got in. It was doable for me, but others may not be able to do this. But on Burano all the paths we took were completely wheel chair friendly with only a part of the lace demo on a second floor. And Murano only had one place with a few steps. We were so glad that the boat drivers agreed to accept my chair/scooter and to get it in and out of the boats for us. My husband especially enjoyed the ride across the lagoon. We had enough free time to get in either lunch or lots of shopping. Some got both done. We would recommend this tour highly, but if you use a wheel chair check with the tour company ahead of time.

We definitely recommend this excursion in Venice !, Murano and Burano are not to be missed to have a full experience in this amazing city. It was so fun seeing glass be blown into a vase and glass stretched, fired and shaped into a horse, before our eyes. Along with ladies making lace on Burano. Charming little islands with tiny colorful houses. Our tour guide, Gianluca, went above and beyond being a guide. He made it feel like we were traveling with our Italian friend. He was full of personality and information. He was patient and relaxed. He was willing to answer any questions about the islands and the city he loves and calls home. This was the highlight of our vacation.

Our guide was excellent! We think his name was John Luca. Since we ate in Burano, it would have been nice to stay a little bit longer for free time there. I would have spend more money!

Very pleasant tour - good to get away from the crush in Venice - although later in the day Murano and Burano get busy. Excellent guide, Annaletto, very knowledgeable and considerate. Glass factory demonstration was very interesting - a true dying art.

This is a great and very informative tour from Venice to Murano where we visited a 300 year old glass factory. We watched a master glass blower at work creating beautiful masterpieces as the owner narrated with great enthusiasm. After that our guide took us to the island of Burano to see the amazing multi colored homes and the lace laboratory. Excellent tour and a great way to spend a big part of the day.

Exciting tour. Guide was superb. Glass blowing demo was unbelievable. We blew our budget on the fabulous items in the glass factory. Burano was a neat island town and we very much enjoyed the strolling along the city street with its colorful houses and friendly people.

Thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing and scenic boat rides to and from Murano and Burano. The glass blowing demonstration was very interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The tour lasted a little over 5 hours. Definitely worth the money to see so much!

We have been to Venice many time, and have taken many tours like this. This was by far the best ever!! We didn't feel rushed, had plenty of time to see each island. Our host was the best!! Had a wonderful meal and got to shop all we wanted. I won't consider any other Murano/Burano tour again.
