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!

A good and compact way to get to know the lagoon and its islands. 1 hour for Torcello was too short for us.

Perfect trip to see the most beautiful places in Venice. The stops are good enough to get a few drinks and food.

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 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!

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

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

Very nice visit to the 3 islands, even if Torcello did not have much interest. 2 large groups of about thirty people take 3 different boats at 10min intervals, so it's crowded. The very limited and fairly basic explanations are given on the boat, each sentence in the 5 different languages. It was however well organized, but very touristy.

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.
