    Way to rushed. An hour on Murano a deter the glass demonstration (he was neat) and basically they let out our in their shop to spend your money and heard you back on the boat and wisk you off to Murano for 1.5 hrs which ASI ally have you enough time to find a place and eat lunch. No time to browse and shop. We went back to both islands the next day with the water bus and spent the whole day eating and shopping and exploring. Get a water bus pass for $20 for the whole day and you can hop on and off as much as you like.

    Highly recommend this tour, staff were very friendly and helpful. We got to see the glass blowing, lace making and had a lovely lunch on a beautiful island. Weather was stunning, which always helps though.

    This was a fun day trip from Venice and a great opportunity to see the islands of Murano and Burano. The glass making demonstration was incredible! We had tons of fun exploring Burano as well.

    My only small dislike of this tour was that the Murano visit was inside a glass factory showroom and no actual chance to walk the city streets. However, the glass artwork is stunning even if you don't want to buy any. Burano was awesome. After all the crowds in the heart of Venice the island of Burano was a nice relaxing stroll through a quaint town.

    Enjoyed this tour as we were mainly left to explore on our own which suited us. It wasn't easy to hear all the commentary on the boat however we weren't particularly worried about that.

    Great tour! Great way to get out of the hustle and bustle of Venice and enjoy the surrounding islands.

    The trip to Murano and Burano was our favorite part of our visit to Venice! The islands are beautiful and being able to see glass pieces made was amazing. My only suggestion would be that the time on Murano be extended. One hour didn't give us a chance to really explore outside of the factory but we took a vaporetto back a few days later and it was well worth the return trip.

    We had a good time. Everything was punctual and the guide explained everything in advance. Well worth the trip.

    We really enjoyed the whole day. The boat rides were smooth and the weather was beautiful. The guide told us about all the history on and off the boat. She was very impressive. The only negative is that it was too short. We wish we could have stayed an hour longer on each place
