If you love the Alpine atmosphere and need a nice change from sea level...don't hesitate to take this tour. As a geologist - I went for the geology, but I was so awed by the beauty all around me. From the unexpected snowfall and changing leaves, to the chalets and the majestic peaks...every turn provided another wow. I went mid October - first snowfall of the season - this turned out to be the perfect day for the tour.
we enjoyed the boat ride including the information provided by the tour guide. we did not know that we would not have a tour of any of the islands, but instead we were given sufficient time to wander thru the streets and shop. the long walk on Torcello was unexpected so we did not tour the bascilica, but did enjoy just sitting at the park at the restaurant
We very much enjoyed visiting the glass blowing in Murano and the opportunity to purchase authentic Murano glass as well as seeing the other two places. Very quaint.
great tour friendly people clean boat lots to see and enjoy
Loved the tour. Enough to have a taste of all three islands and make you want to come back and explore further
Short of the forced commercial stop at the glass blowing factory, it was a wonderful day's excursion. Don't miss the opportunity to see these very special places.
This was a very relaxing tour and enjoyed the tour and all the stops.
This was nice to get out of Venice because to be honest there isn't a lot to Venice! Would recommend this tour to anyone
Island tour from Venice well worth the half day.
The little islands are really pretty and the Murano glass making is good to see.
Great tour!! Not enough time on each island but if you can, go back to Burano! Beautiful little place! Clean, not crowded and great restaurants! The tour guide on the boat spoke very fast and had a strong accent when speaking English. It was hard to hear what she was saying.
Lovely tour of the three islands away from the tourist-filled main island around the grand canal. Burano with the colorful houses was especially enchanting!
The boat ride was relaxing and delivered directly to the islands. Enjoyed watching a glass item being created from scratch. Wish this could have been a little longer. The island where lace is being made was very informative and fun to watch. Enjoyed a nice lunch outside. We missed the boat to go to Torcello didn't hear the time correctly but we were able to go to another location and catch another water bus back to the square with no problems. Burano is a very pretty town and enjoyed taking a number of pictures there. Would definitely recommend this trip for the price. You could also get an all day pass on the boats and tour these places on your own but this worked well!
Fantastic tour, must for all! Good guide who spoke English, French, Spanish and of course Italian so everyone knew what was going on. Three beautiful islands to visit. The glass making demonstration was very impressive, and Burano and Tocello islands were fun to visit too.
Another excellent tour by Viator would highly recommend all Viators tours over the world.
Lovely tour. Shall recommend to all who want to visit Venice. Very informative.
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 :
