We took the boat at 9:30 in the morning. We made a stop of 1 hour in San Marco square. Then we went up again and visited the island of Murano where they gave us a demonstration. Two hours later we took a new boat to Burano (for us the most beautiful island) where we stayed another two hours and took the opportunity to eat. We took the boat back to Venice, but there would still have been time to visit some other island and catch the last boat. A very good experience. totally recommended

Totally easy and totally empty compared to the public water buses. Great way to explore the islands, especially since an audio guide is included. The line designation with red and blue is a bit confusing, since the same ship ultimately travels the entire route. I might have hoped for a little more stops on the red (inner-city) part. Nevertheless, definitely worth a recommendation!
