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.
Since we were staying on Lido, this was a great aid to us getting to firstly, getting to Venice central, and the getting around without hassle. once our ticket was activated we had three days of unlimited travel on the Vaporetto system, with the added bonus of fine weather which meant that we could enjoy sitting outside and watching the fantastic views of the Grand canal etc as we glided past.
Just back from Venice. Buying 7 days water transport was great value. We could get the main attractions quickly and spend more time at the attractions. Visited all the islands and parts of Venice that are further away. Great value and lovely using water buses to see the sights
It was very easy to get the tickets from the machine and just scan each time you use the waterbus and mainland (water) buses. Just make sure you check to see if there is a machine near you to enter the code for your tickets. Highly recommended!
Lovely ride through the canal, before going out on the grande canal, amazing views, helpful staff, good value by comparison to if you just turn up. We missed our slot but they let us go the next day very accommodating
