What people are saying about Burano
I enjoyed the boat rides - although none of the commentary could be heard if outside on the one boat with outside seating and not much could be seen through dirty windows when seated inside on the inside-seating only boats, although could hear description well. Unfortunately a thunderstorm hit while we were on the second island, which was ok as was a little town and could duck into shops etc., but it was bucketing down on the third island where it was all totally exposed and everyone got soaked as we were not allowed to stay on the boat (although there was small ferry terminal building nearby that many people crowded into to shelter for the hour). Enjoyed the second island, Burano, the most.
I booked the morning on the internet and it is much cheaper than booking at the station. They had to get phone clearance with my booking number because it was done so late via the internet, but that was not a problem at all. The tour is very nice hopping on and off several boats. I suggest that they do a trip with only Burano and Murano to have more time to spend there. You really don't have enough time before you have to catch your next boat - next time I would actually spend the whole day at Burano.
I would absolutely recommend this tour - we did not have much time in Venice so this was a great way to see 3 islands without having to organize transportation ourselves- water buses are a pain & not a pleasant experience, despite being “cheapest “. Seeing Murano Glass blowing was best part. Could have used a bit more time in Murano/less in Torcello. Overall well run /hassle free enjoyable tour for very reasonable price. I will use Get your guide again!
All the islands were enjoyable and the tour was good value. Glass blowing was good but v busy with many people having to stand. Some people have mentioned that Torcello was boring, actually I really liked that island with its cathedral from the 7th century, a nice soothing change of pace from Venice.
Thought this was a great value for money trip that gave us a good overview of the 3 islands. Loved Burano & Murano & enjoyed Torcello more than I was expecting. Length of time was fine. Murano glass blowing was great - kids still can’t believe he could make a horse in such a short space of time.
