What people are saying about Burano
We had a great time visiting the little islands of Burano, Murano and Torcello. The boat was comfortable and the guide gave some information during the ride. Interesting visit to Murano glassmaking factory but the highlight of the tour is the beautiful island of Burano with the colourful fisherman houses. In Torcello not much to see but not bad to get a break and enjoy a coffee before you head back to Venice. Half day duration is just perfect.
This tour gives you enough time to see all 3 islands. The guide does try and explain all the landmarks, whilst on the boat, but she can hardly be heard. Would it be possible to give out something written as well ? She did make it clear what time to be back at the boat. The guide does not accompany you on the island. You would not expect this ,with the cost of the trip. All told I would recommend this tour
Four of us took this trip and on the whole we thought it was good value for ney. 2 things spoiled it for us, firstly the guide was rather abrupt and certainly when we were waiting at 1pm in the full heat of the sun with no shelter at all and she just sat in the shade on the boat and told us we had to wait for a further 4 minutes it was not the right thing to do.
I really enjoyed the tour. I had just enough time at each island (about 1 hour) to shop, take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere. I especially liked the glass blowing demonstration. The only negative was that the tour guide on the boat was hard to hear and I didnt know that I had to go the the ticket booth to get my boat ticket.
Came from the train station and had no idea we had to take a water taxi for a half hour thought we were going to miss the trip but the trip was fantastic glad we took it
