A great day trip out. The glass blowing demonstration was absolutely amazing! Burano was stunning and I wish we had more time on the island to wander around as once you have lunch there isn’t much time left. The last island was nice but not a lot to do there, all the sites are at the end of the island about 5/10 min walk and all together. Entrance is not expensive at all max €5 for one option. All in all a great day out and would Highly recommend

Everything organized perfectly. Very courteous staff. Comfortable and clean boat. Locations visited all beautiful, including the tour to the master glassmaker! Well done!
