It was an amazing tour with great guide Alessandro. I was a bit late and they waited me, that was very nice of the company. The tour is short but it's enough to see these two amazing islands. Totally recommended!

Alex was our guide and he was so knowledgeable about each island and the people. The ability to see a glass maker perform and understand how lace is made was a once in a lifetime experience.

This was a last minute booking by us as we had some spare time before traveling back and we are so pleased we did as it was fabulous. The guide was knowledgeable and passionate about the islands. The visits to the glass and lace establishment informative and enjoyable. The bar trip fabulous and the islands magical. Fabulous trip.

Being honest I didn’t feel the tour was worth the money. You can take the water bus to the stops. There are Artisans that will give you a tour of there factory in the small islands. We watched the artisan make a horse and a vase. Totally process took 3 minutes then you rushed into the store to make a purchase. Our guide babbled on from the time the boat left until it returned I could see in everyone’s face they had zoned out a while ago

The trip to the islands of Murano and Burano was truly memorable and cherished. Gabriel was such a welcoming, amenable and knowledgeable guide who added very interesting commentary to the whole journey. His humor and patience complemented what was already a wonderful surprise of an afternoon in the lagoon. I look forward to another tour with Gabriel next time I am in Venice.

We had a wonderful guide and the amount of time spent in murano and burano we’re just right. It’s a good way to get to know her islands outside of Venice proper.

Fantastic tour and experience. The glass blowing/sculpting is amazing. Our two boys (ages 8 and 10) interacted with the artisan and had many questions all of them answered. The demonstrations were amazing. To top it off, Prosecco on the way back to Venice

We're really happy we did this one as a private tour. The guide was great! Super informative with loads of really fun tales about the region. Both islands are worth a visit and we enjoyed lunch Burano! If I had to nitpick, we thought the glass company were a liiittle bit pushy when asking us to purchase items. Otherwise, absolutely no complaints

Wonderful tour day

We had a wonderful day on this tour! The tour guide (Katty) was very friendly, accommodating, and informative. We started the day by going to Murano by boat where we saw a glass blowing demonstration, and then we had some time to shop throughout the glass showroom. We spent a few minutes walking through a beautiful church in Murano before getting back on the boat and traveling to Burano. We had free time there to go to lunch and shop around, and then we got back on the boat to Venice. I only wish we had more time at Burano! Definitely recommend this tour.

Tour was wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we got a lovely tour of the lagoon. The island portions were a bit rushed but we were there on Easter Sunday so it was understandably busy. We had a great time!
