Great experience seeing the other islands - could have a bit more time on Burano
Murano glass factory was excellent.
Burano is a great island stop.
Torcello was just okay.
Great guide and good timing for all of the activities included in the tour.

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!
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.
We had an amazing time with our English speaking tour guide.
She was beyond knowledgeable to the degree that she loved her job of doing tours and it was evident in her presentation and demeanour.
If the caliber of the rest of our tours yet to do is anything like this one and the talent of our guide, we'll be looking forward to them.
By far the best tour I have been to in Venice. The tour guide drops you off at the different islands giving you pleanty of time to explore on your own. And the boat ride, its self, was very relaxing and passed by mnay spectacular veiws.
Good way to get an overview of all three islands! Take lots of water in summer! Torchello was green and pretty with restaurants lining the water and visiting boaters. The houses of Burano were all different colors. LearnEd some history on the way. After the glass blowing demo on Murrano, there is time to buy beautiful glass items! Had everything from chandeliers, cups and saucers, jewellery, etc. Prices from very expensive to affordable!
Loved Burano and Torcella. Murano we only had time to see the glass blowing which was interesting and then only the shop attached to the factory. Would have loved more time in each destination. Great value.
Very enjoyable tour with clear instructions about meeting points etc.! You got about 45 minutes on each island, including a glass-blowing demonstration at Murano, which we found to be a good amount of time! Would recommend!
What a great tour. We loved seeing the factory where the glass is made. Burn was just beautiful. Torcello we could have skipped but it was fine
Tour was incredible !!! A must see! We saw all 3 islands and ended up buying from each ! Loved seeing the glass sculptures being made, it was short but worth it. The boat was lovely and we sat at the back and watched the sea, it was beautiful. The tannoy system was a bit drowned out by the boat noise, but you get the idea of what the speaker is saying. You spend about 45-50 mins on each island which is a good time and you see a lot! One of the best tours I've been on!! Well worth the time and money. Will recommend to anyone! We even got offered to be dropped back at the train station or additional areas ! Very lovely ! It was 30 degrees when we went ! So was perfect !
Guide was very informative
Surprise drop to the venice station by YAK boad
Good choice for guided tour
Enjoyed the demo at the glass factory
A really nice day trip
The operator even dropped us back to the grand canal which was closer to our accommodation
I would have to say that burano was my favorite. Could and #39;ve done without the other 2 islands. Highly recommend burano. Beautiful Island and the food is great. Do watch ur time tho. They will leave you if u don and #39;t make it to the meeting point. We missed it and had to take another boat an hour later.
It was a fantastic trip to these 3 islands, the glass blowing is an art which obviously takes years to perfect.
And to see those works of art in their showrooms especially those upstairs were phenominal, some even priced at over 70,000 I really dug deep into my wallet but unfortunately it wasnt THAT deep lol !
It was great. All three islands were nice. Torcello had a neat basilica and torcello was just cute. It was great fun on the boats too!
We really enjoyed our Murano, Burano and Tocello half-day sightseeing tour. We had unfortunately misjudged the time it would take to get to the meeting point by water taxi although we had allied more than 1 1/2hrs which saw us arrive 10mins late. The tour company were commendably able to fit us into another session and we were so glad they could. It was a great tour, relaxed and informative, and definitely great value for money. We would highly recommend it to anyone considering seeing more of what beautiful Venice has to offer. Our only criticism would be that the meeting point was hard to locate and this would have save us some time and frustration. Overall, well worth it!

Loved Murano and Burano Missed boat to Torcello but worked out fine as we got to our cruise a little early and relaxed last day in Venice.
