  • We had a very nice time during the tour and Virginia our guide was excellent! She was very descriptive and gave us a lot of information. The only drawback was the extremely hot weather during that day but this has nothing to do with the tour as such!

  • They are one of the many company that organise tours. If you miss the 1st appointment there is no way to know the name of the boat, the precise point where the tour starts, or to see anything around you that is giving any information about these tours or this company. I can say that it seems an home made tour and probably it is.

    Who answered the phone when I asked to be helped had an annoyed tone, maybe he was dreaming to do another job... But that makes the customer service poor form my prospective.

    Eventually they tried to help me, but I can't say that it was a good customer service experience. When I go to the Council they're much more polite and helpful, but maybe we're just used to different quality standards...

  • Tour guide was fantastic, private launch luxurious, brilliant demonstration of the glass making and no pressure to buy the glass! Little more pressure to buy the lace which resulted in us not spending as much time looking at the beautiful items available. Relaxed time on both islands. Excellent value and definitely the best trip of its kind!

  • The Murano part of the tour was mediocre as you felt you were being shepherded into a overpriced glass product buying tour - once we got over that though Burano was amazing with a great meal to boot!

  • First off I thought I was booking a private tour but this was with 15 other people. The only thing we were able to do on Murano was go to one glass factory and watch the glass blowing. There was not time to do anything else. Burano was a bust regarding the lace making factory, there was a store with one lady sitting in a chair tatting. Thank goodness we had some time to walk around and I could take photos of the beautiful houses. Not what I was expecting at all.

  • Katty was our guide for this tour and we had a great time! We took a small boat to Murano where a representative from the glass shop met us at the dock. We saw a presentation of glass blowing pitcher and solid glass horse being made before being ushered through the showroom to look around and shop. We walked as a group to the church before heading to Burano.
    Katty took us to see one of the ladies creating Burano lace. She pointed out her favorite restaurant on the island and gave recommendations on what to order. She also walked us to the best place to take photos. I could have stayed in Burano all day, but alas we were only on a half day excursion. It was a great trip which ended with a toast over Prosecco, I would recommend!

  • This tour was exceptional! Not only did you get a demonstration on how glass was made and lace was made, but you also got a history and walking tour of the two islands. The boat ride was entertaining and informative and the tour guide was as good as it gets. We really enjoyed her! She even served sparkling wine on the boat ride back to Venice and shared some wonderful stories and information. Definitely one of the highlights of our three week trip in Italy!

  • Great, guide was fantastic.glass factory great, a little pushy but I guess is their business.

  • unfortunately I came 25 minutes late and find no one at the place no sign for the program, even the hotel the gathering point should have been at its building front claim they no nothing about this tour, I felt helpless, fortunately I found another program arrange by an Italian government agent free of charge at the taxi stop in front of Saint Marc square.

  • Excellent tour, great value! We enjoyed our day, tour guide was great! We highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in venturing out to Murano and Burano.
