Its very interesting trip, on tour they will give the history which give us more insight of the islands. The tour guide wait for us cause we got delayed from the restaurant in Burano. Best thing we got souveneirs from Murano, I suggest best area to get souveneirs from. Very lovely trip, couples you should all try, this I think in any season is romantic.

Myself and my wife brought our 8, 9 & 15 year olds kids along with us on this trip. It was very well organised and we all really enjoyed it. The boats are very modern & clean and the toilets on board were also clean. Some spectacular photo ops of the port, from the back of the boat as we departed at 1pm. Our guide on the day was multi-lingual, giving the announcements in several languages all the time and was very informative throughout. The visit to the glass factory at Murano was lovely with no pressure to purchase anything from the gift shop. The free time to roam Burano was just enough to ramble through the streets and maybe pick up a trinket or two from one of the local vendors. The trip back was direct and was about an hour of more smooth steady sailing. (Not sure if that was weather related or if was a regular smooth journey out and back due to the islands being in a lagoon.) Overall we really enjoyed the trip and thouroughly recommend it.

It was a nice half day trip. 30min by boat to Murano. About an hour on island - that includes glass blowing presentation + free time. Then 30min to get to Burano. 1,5h of free time on an island. Trip back to Venice took 40min. Tour guide on a boat spoke 5 languages. We did it with two small kids ( 5 years old and 18th the old).
