This tour was amazing!
Worked perfectly to meet our expectations. A good half day spent in both the islands. Glass factory tour followed by a couple of hours in Burano. A tour of the Grand Canal on the way. A perfect private experience for us a family of four.
We had a really lovely morning with our excellent guide Roberta. She was extremely knowledgable and clearly very passionate about her home town. Our trip included the Grand Canal and many smaller canals where we saw a little bit of ordinary Venician life. We then visited one of the glass workshops on Murano where we watched a fantastically skilled artist at work and visited the incredible showroom. Then on to Burano which is completely different a very pretty island with colourful houses and lots of restaurants and cafes. It was a beautiful sunny day which made it all the more pleasant.
Alessandra was a fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable guide. We got to see parts of Venice that we would have never seen otherwise. I would highly recommend this tour. Ot got us out of the crowds and onto the water....beautiful.
Alessandra was our brilliant tour guide for our visit to Murano and Burano. She was very interesting to listen to as she told us about many of the important buildings along the Grand Canal as we made our way out of Venice.
The Murano factory is fascinating, with an amazing demonstration from the artisans creating those wonderful sculptures. After the demonstration we got a chance to wander through the amazing gallery of works that have accumulated, incredible.
Burano was a beautiful island with a very cute town, we saw a very brief demonstration of the lace work that makes the island famous and then enjoyed a traditional Burano biscuit as we strolled through the streets learning about the leaning tower and the town square.
We were well looked after by Catty our guide on this tour and one of us ended up blowing a glass bowl, well nearly. Towards the end of the tour we told Catty we would like to spend some of the afternoon at a sensible eating place near our cruise ship and she took us to exactly the right thing. A good 5 hours on this tour.
