What people are saying about Burano
The meeting point was very vague, we got to the place shown on the map and then were clueless where to wait. luckily we met others on the tour and huddled together. The Glass blowing demonstration was amazing, we really enjoyed it, plenty of time to view the showroom and the souvenir shop and a quick coffee. Burano was also great, the coloured houses and the shops were great for pictures but there was so many shops and so little time that we felt rushed and clock watching a lot to make sure we were back at the boat on time. Torcello for us was a waste of time, it was about 15 minute walk down a canal to get to the church ruins and then when we arrived, there was no one around, was like a ghost town, none of the exhibitions were accessible, the toilets were padlocked shut and we ended up buying a drink at a restaurant on the way back just to use their bathroom facilities. We would have benefitted with more in Burano instead.
I really liked our guide Kristina. We learnt alot from her and about the islands. We travelled in a beautiful boat and I really liked, that our tour group was quite small. I liked the glass blowing demonstration. I would have prefered to stay in Burano a bit longer. We didn't even get to look at the island itself. Murano also felt a bit stressful. I feel like the tour should be an hour longer, so that you would have enough time to see both islands. We didn't get to look at the houses, the shops AND sit down for a coffee. Next time I would probably get the public transport bus and take my own sweet time to visit both island.
Murano: The glass blowing demonstration was incredible - if you go into the showroom, bring your wallets ;-) and remember that everyone who speaks to you is a sales person. Burano: Simply gorgeous, could not believe the intensity of the house colours. The lace demonstration was a little boring, and it was difficult for everyone to gather around to see how the woman made the lace.
Antonella is an amazing guide, born and raised in Venice. She always have a story about the different islands we saw. She clearly loves her job. We spent a wonderfull afternoon thanks to her. Murano was great. The master glass demonstration was very impressive. Burano is a village full of colors, very cute and beautiful. Everybody loved it. Worth the price.
The glass blowing was incredible to see in action. They even made a dancing glass horse in the moment. I should've walked around Murano although the glass gallery was exquisite. I wasn't interested in the lace of Burano but the town was bright, lively, and fun. Even the boat ride at sunset was quite a treat. Very recommended.
