The tour was great and well organized, the islands were nice especially burano. If you want instagrm worthy pics, that is the place. Murano and the glass blowing was awesome too, we didnt explore much of torcello so i would say its just ok. The tour guide seems nice but it was hard to understand all her explanations. Overall a great experience!
