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.
Loved the boat tour with guide! The islands are great and it was fantastic to see the glass blowing in action. This tour can be done using public transport and we considered cancelling the tour and going by public ferry and we are so glad we didn't as they were PACKED even now with Covid-19 and far less tourists in Venice than normal. This guided boat tour had sanitiser available and passengers were required to wear a mask on board (even if sat outside) even while the boat was travelling between destinations. Highly recommend it!
We were a family of 5 (kids were 16, 10, 4) and LOVED every minute of this tour. Antonella was AMAZING! Very informative and included the kids in conversation. It was a small private group which was nice with COVID restrictions. Masks on the whole tour. Just enough time on Murano to have a tour of the glass factory. Wish we had a little more time on Burano as there was more to see and do there. But we were able to meet with the lace lady in action, wander the streets to find cookies, quick lunch, gelato, and pics.
It was a really great experience, especially the part where the CEO of the new murano gallery gave me and my family the chance to see the Luab 4.0 even though it wasn’t really part of the tour. Our tour guide, Lara, was very accommodating and helped us find the good places for gelato and cookies in each island.
Burano is a must see, I would recommend this boat trip to anyone visiting Venice. The tour guide was lovely and knowledgable about everything and the free time to explore the islands was the perfect amount of time - didn’t feel rushed. Overall a great experience.
