  • After a delayed start waiting for other tour members, the tour was very enjoyable and interesting. The guide was super, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The boat's captain and only crew was extremely skilled crossing the lagoon and helpful assisting me in and out if the boat.

  • Our guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful.

  • On time - good guide - good toir - recommended

  • This was a great tour. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the area and told us a lot of things about the islands of Venice while we were on the boat ride to and from Murano/Burano. Visiting the glass factory was very interesting and they would give you a good discount if you bought something. I do recommend this tour.

  • Tour guide was right on time. Group was about 15 people total. We took a private boat from island to island which was nice...waiting for the public transport boats would have wasted time. We toured a beautiful church in Murano before heading over to the glass factory for a private demonstration and shopping in the factory store I only bought glass ON Murano because I was warned many stores in Venice sell fake glass and rip people off. Then we headed to Burano for a private demonstration of lace making at one of the private stores. The employees really wanted people to buy the products afterward but they were NOT pushy. After, we had free time to eat and explore. Wish we could have had more time on Burano island to explore but all around this was a great tour that was a convenient way to see both islands!

  • Kathy was excellent, informative and very easy to talk with. Tour was 5 hours, and the waters were quite calm allowing for a pleasurable drive, even in the stifling heat . She also provided much needed info and background to our visits. The Murano part was outstanding, with a fantastic demonstration. Giovanni was very good at describing the glass factory procedure, and a great host! The souvenirs that were available for purchase were out of this world. Burano was more pretty than interesting as far as the lace labs, but still very happy to visit the island. A real winner of a tour!

  • 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!
