This is an excellent tour to have an overall introduction to Murano, Burano, and Torcello, without diving too deep into the details of each island. Perfect if you have never visited them and want to get an idea, less suitable if you want to gain in-depth knowledge about them. We were a small group, so the company booked a taxi, which was an absolute treat. Great first time to the Lagoon Islands, our favourite was Burano (we got covid masks with handmade lace! So stylish). Live demonstrations of glass blowing and lace making are included. The guide was approachable and knowledgeable, keeping us on time without making us feel rushed.
We were a family of 5 (kids were 16, 10, 4) and LOVED every minute of this tour. Antonella was AMAZING! Very informative and included the kids in conversation. It was a small private group which was nice with COVID restrictions. Masks on the whole tour. Just enough time on Murano to have a tour of the glass factory. Wish we had a little more time on Burano as there was more to see and do there. But we were able to meet with the lace lady in action, wander the streets to find cookies, quick lunch, gelato, and pics.
Best way to do the three islands in one go. Murano was really interesting, I would have liked to have more time to explore the island. Burano is beautiful with it's buildings and all the handicrafts - perfect amount of time there! Torcello is cute, very tiny. If I had to do it again though I'd probably go for more time on Murano and no Torcello. Anyway: This trip is definitely worth going!!!
Definitely value for money, you get enough time on each island to explore comfortably and the glass blowing show was very informative. The guide was a little hard to understand at times over the speakers, especially if you're sitting outside on the deck of the boat, but it was in four languages and interesting none the less.
Burano is a must see, I would recommend this boat trip to anyone visiting Venice. The tour guide was lovely and knowledgable about everything and the free time to explore the islands was the perfect amount of time - didn’t feel rushed. Overall a great experience.
