This is an excellent tour to have an overall introduction to Murano, Burano, and Torcello, without diving too deep into the details of each island. Perfect if you have never visited them and want to get an idea, less suitable if you want to gain in-depth knowledge about them. We were a small group, so the company booked a taxi, which was an absolute treat. Great first time to the Lagoon Islands, our favourite was Burano (we got covid masks with handmade lace! So stylish). Live demonstrations of glass blowing and lace making are included. The guide was approachable and knowledgeable, keeping us on time without making us feel rushed.
It is a great way to see the whole city from the lagune. The visits to Murano, Torcello and Burano were by definition relatively short. But for 3h30 it was a packed but very informative tour. The fact that all info had been repeated in 4 languages was very tiring, but the guide as well as the listeners. Esp. if one understand 3 or more of the languages. Maybe it is time to use a headphone system with a choice of languages, as the CitySightseeing hop-on and hop-off buses do it.
Everything went to plan, no delays or problems. Masks required on boat but not walking around which was perfect. All islands are 100% worth the Visit! Burano was my Favourite out the 3 So pretty. I would advise anyone to go on this tour.. Perfect price too.
Alles hat super geklappt!! Schnelle, unkomplizierte Reservierung und Preis Leistung echt top !! Der Ausflug ist so wie beschrieben und das was wir wollten unsere Begleiterin und der Kapitän sympathisch und freundlich! Echt zu empfehlen
We really enjoyed this 3 islands tour, on the boat there’s a multilingual guide, on the islands it is a self guided tour of 50 minutes of each island which is enough in my opinion. Excellent value for money, I recommend it.
