This full-day excursion to the islands of Burano, Murano, and Torcello takes you on a sail across the turquoise waters of the lagoon in Venice.

In the morning, glide through the Lagoon of Venice on a comfortable boat. Take in the sights from the boat's panoramic terrace while your guide provides commentary.

Visit a local glass factory when you arrive at your first destination, Murano, to learn why the island is famous for its glassworks. Observe a demonstration of glass processing from a skilled craftsperson. After that, you'll have about an hour on the island to browse the numerous glass shops.

Next, make your way to Burano, which is famous for its lacework and colorful houses. Follow your tour guide into the town's center, where you'll have two hours to buy a nice lunch, typical Venetian aperitifs, or an ice cream at one of the many local cafes.

Travel from Burano to Torcello, the first town on the estuary where people lived. Invest an hour of free energy where you can go to see the Venetian-Byzantine perfect mosaics at the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta.

Very worthwhile trip. Small exhibit at the glass blowing factory on Murano and then around an hour on the island. then to Burano where you have 2 hours to explore (get lunch at this point) and this is a perfect amount of time to see the island and it's beautiful colours. Next to Torcello you get around an hour or so, again a perfect amount of time. It isn't massively clear to understand the points of interest that they point out on the boat. For the money you spend it is definitely worthwhile!

Torcello seemed like a waste of time, the other 2 islands were gorgeous. The boat ride was beautiful.

It was very good. The guide was there to answer any question and made it easy for us to know what to look for and where in the islands. My only advice to tourists who are not very interested in historical places to take the Murano and Burano without Torcello tours. Torcello is beautiful, and has it's own valuable attractions but different than what you find in Murano and Burano and not that family friendly. All together, it was a wonderful experience and I admire the punctuality of the tour including the transportation.

It's definitely a trip to do. But be on time or 15 mins early at every point! We looked at doing the half day trip but glad we didn't as we got much more time in Burano for a chilled lunch and walk along the island. There wasn't much to do in Torcello, but it does have history, and you can climb the church.

A bit difficult to find the tour manager as several groups from different tour operators were at the same dock at the same time...

We had an amazing day, so glad that we booked this trip. Great value for money. Murano and Burano were brilliant, there was less to see on Torecello but glad we booked it as we had longer at Burano than those who had just booked the Murano & Burano trip. Watching the glass making in Murano was really interesting too.

The tour was a lot of fun, our guide Julia was well versed and really gave us a lot of information and backstory of the locations we visited. The island were absolutely beautiful and the ride to each place was really comfortable too. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend to everyone that thinks of doing this tour!

Was a beautiful trip! Well worth the money! 3 beautiful islands and a great host who spoke I think up to 5-6 languages! Murano glass experience was amazing! Little tip! Walk out of the shop at the end of the tour and go to the local’s shops, literally 2/3 of what the factory tour is charging! Burano is beautiful! Make sure to visit Bepi’s house and try their biscuits. Torcello is so peaceful and pretty! Also the bell tower you can climb for €5 each! We didn’t realise that until we got there! The sights were gorgeous!

Murano part was spoiled by being captive in one shop and factory. We would have liked time to walk to all the shops, so the stop should have been another 1/2 hour longer. Technically one could have left the shop but there was no time, and you had to come through the shop again to get back to the boat. The other two islands were superb stops, and perfect as they occurred. Fifteen more minutes on Torello would have been icing on the cake.
