I enjoyed the glass...

I enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration and browsing the show room. Absolutely loved Burano with the numerous choices in shops and restaurants. Eat lunch in Burano- skip lunch in Murano.

Nice trip

I liked that the tour was well organized and offered the chance to see a bit of every island. We had a short demonstration of Murano glass work and then we were free to visit the islands. Personally I was happy with what I got for the price payed - it would have been a hassle to do this trip by myself with the vaporetto. For those who want to stay more on each island, I would recommend one island per day, otherwise it can get extremely long and tiring.

You could easily do this trip without taking a tour boat. Very little commentary and no directions at all.

Strolling beautiful streets in Burano-lovely houses, friendly people. It was definitely memorable to be unable to find the ferry at the end of our visit to Murano. No signage near waterfront, no ferry officials or shopkeepers were aware of docking location. We did see signage in Burano. However, if any existed in Murano it never mentioned and we never saw it. Took the public ferry from Marano to Burano No one had the slightest idea where the dock might be. We simply ran into fellow passengers and got directions.

The others passengers did not find any problems to meet the guide at the meeting point. Anywaym, we remain at your disposal. Best regards

Just enough time to witness the artistry of Murano & beauty of Burano

This was an excellent trip. I was at first upset with myself upon arrival to Venice that I booked since my hotel offered a complimentary visit to Murano. However, I was so glad we didn't cancel this trip. My teenage children were very interested in the brief glass blowing demo. While it was interesting, the stop in Murano was mostly a built in, closed-audience trip to one glass factory. Little time was spent exploring other shops on the island, so you didn't have many choices for glass. Still, I bought a little something there. The best part was the visit to Burano. Not only was it great for pictures of the brightly colored houses but we had a seafood meal (it's a fishing community after all) and checked out the lace shops. I even purchased a lacy wrap before leaving. I do recommend this excursion but mainly for the visit to Burano.

Consiglio anche se molto turistico

Esperienza che consiglio sicuramente, ho dato tre stelle perché il tempo a disposizione a Murano è veramente poco dato che è compreso di dimostrazione e visita allo shop. E perché eravamo davvero in tanti quindi le spiegazioni molto rapide

Gentile, grazie della recensione. La durata di sosta in ogni isola è specificata nella descrizione dell'attività. Grazie e a disposizione

Leider enttäuschend
Stephanie_M
, Jun 2021
Leider etwas enttäuschend! Die Nachricht mit den genauen Standpunkt ist etwas spät bei uns angekommen sodass wir sehr gestresst zum Boot laufen mussten. Die Tour war auch nicht mit 15 Personen wie angegeben sondern mindestens 100 Personen. Gebucht haben wir auch einen deutschen Reiseführer. Leider wurde auf der Tour nichts auf Deutsch erklärt. Ich würde jedem empfehlen auf Eigenregie auf die Inseln zu fahren um diese zu erkunden.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Dear, we are sorry if you did not appreciate the experience, but we have to underline that the tour takes place regularly in German and due to the covid restriction, the tour always takes place with about 20 persons maximum and never with 100 as you say. Maybe you have written the review on a different business page. Anyway we remain at disposal for further information.
