It's a nice boat tour with enough time on the islands to get a first impression. There is not enough time for long excursions on the islands. The demonstration in the glass blowing workshop was short and good to get an impression of how glass is processed. As a wheelchair user only possible with a very narrow wheelchair and the best thing is to be able to walk a few steps!

The trip was very well organized and the time spent on the islands was perfectly adequate. During the trip we received a lot of information about Venice and the three islands. It was just a pity that the information was rarely communicated in German. Most of the information was given in various languages, but the German language was constantly left out. Even if the information was explained, it was not understandable in German. There is definitely room for improvement there :)

Great to get transported to the islands with free time to wander around yourself. The boat rides were very pleasant. Loved Murano and Burano! Torcello was a bit of a waste of time as you had to pay to get into the museum etc but not enough time to do those really.
