Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your private guide in central Venice and head to the pier to board your private boat. Set sail around the UNESCO-listed Venice Lagoon and admire the views as you glide past San Giorgio island, Certosa island, and Sant Erasmo island.

Arrive at Murano Island and jump off for a walking tour of the tranquil island, pausing to admire the 12th-century Church of Santi Maria e Donato. Then, discover the island’s claim to fame—Murano glass—as you visit a glass factory, enjoy a traditional glass-blowing demonstration, and perhaps purchase some exquisite hand-made souvenirs.

Back on the boat, it’s a short cruise to Burano Island, where the multi-colored houses and picturesque fishing port make for some striking photo opportunities. After taking in the scenery, pay a visit to a lace factory to discover the island’s rich lace-making heritage.

After returning to the mainland, your tour ends back in San Marco Square.

The best part by far was talking with our guid on the boat. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Boat ride was very nice. We did see a 10 min demonstration of glass blowing. We booked a tour in English but had some Italians on our tour and 75% was spoken in Italian.

If you want to experience a little something off the beaten path of Venice, don't miss this tour. It was fabulous! It was amazing to watch the glassblowers and view all of the magnificent pieces of art that were created in the glass factory on Murano. And Burano was my college age daughter's favorite place that we visited. Also, I had my favorite meal of our entire Italy on Burano. The seafood was world-class outstanding. Also, the little shops were so much fun to walk around in and, the lace work was impressive. Highly recommend this tour.

Such a beautiful tour! You go to Murano first and tour the glass-making shop. We had ample time to look around and make a purchase. We then headed over to Burano to see lace-making and grab some lunch and drinks. Very knowledgeable tour guide! The Murano glass-making shop, in particular, had great customer service!

This was a nice tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We got to see a glass demonstration and enjoyed the boat ride between the various stops. We were not rushed in any destination! On Burano, we had some time to walk around the island before heading back.

Excellent tour guide, you could tell that he enjoyed his job. He gave us a good recommendation for a restaurant in Burano, he had a good command of English and knew the history of the area. The trip to the glass factory was fascinating.
