Your first stop will be on the island of Murano. Sometimes it is called the "Island of Glass". You will visit one of its famous glass factories and see how glass is made and blown. Then go to Torcello, the oldest inhabited island. Continue on to Burano, admiring the nature and small islands scattered around you. Spend your free time on Burano, a typical fishing island with colorful contrasts and painted chocolate box houses.

Also, note the many pieces of evidence of the famous lace and embroidery industry and try some of Burano's famous homemade cakes. Note that once you're on the ground, it's not a tour. The guide will accompany you to the glass factory in Murano and the lace store in Burano. You will then have time to explore each island on your own.

Very good experience.. You can visit the islands separately at a lower cost but I recommend it, especially if you're in Venice for a very short stay. Furthermore, this tour is complemented with a guide.

Wonderful experience, in Murano it was interesting to see the craftsman working the glass live, I couldn't help but buy something created by them! Torcello didn't impress me that much. Burano completely in love! The guide was kind and explained everything even as we arrived in the various islands. Too bad for only 45 minutes to visit the islands, with hindsight I would have definitely chosen the 6 hour one! It is worth it. Excellent quality price

I really enjoyed the tour, but as a minus I would have preferred a little more time, maybe on Murano and Burano, in particular. But we had enough time for a short tour and and some photos in every location. I would recommend this tour to everyone who want to catch a glimpse of these islands.

My friend and I had arrived late for our boat trip in Venice , but the company that we had booked the trip through, said we could go on the next boat. We visited the 3 islands , at Murano we went to the glass factory , really interesting to watch such a skilled art, especially seeing the beauty and designs created at the end of the demonstration. We then went to Torcello , not a lot there , but we had time for lunch . Our last island Burano was our favorite with the beautiful coloured houses,...

I'd definitely recommend booking in advance. You can calmly order your tour program from home and enjoy your trip once you're there without having to worry about payment or a lack of language skills. The descriptions of the starting/meeting point were very precise.

It was raining and there were only a few people on the boat. It was a unique and beautiful trip. We saw so much and learnt a lot too, the trip was definitely worth it, those 4 hours were well used. Would definitely recommend to others.

The boat tour was absolutely worth the 20 euro. Yeah, you don't get to spend that much time on the islands, but what do you expect for 20 euro for 4 hours. On Murano you're brought straight from Steeg to a glass blowery and you can watch them make a vase and a horse. Then there's a little time left over to buy the glass pieces they've made. In Torcello you visit the church. In Burano you have about 40 minutes to view at least the main spot on the island. Overall this was a nice trip and the p...

This is a great tour to give you an overview of the Islands, there is sufficient time allowed for visits on each and will give you enough information to allow you to decide if you would like to come back to explore them further. It's also a lovely boat ride with plenty of scenery to take in.

Excellent! Was worth it, rather than reach them with public transportation. Price is cheap. Glass factory worth watching - even if you do not care about it. Simply awesome.
