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.

We enjoyed Morano but particularly Borano as I could have stay there for a whole day. As others have said, if only we did not have to stop at Torano. Transport was good, but again as others said that the PA was difficult to understand at times. My husband, who can speak Italian, noticed that there was more information given in Italian than in English.

Very beautiful islands to discover, guide at the top for the translation, only downside pity not to have much time on the islands because some shops are not open.

We enjoyed Murano the most, the glass blowing is stunning. We could have done without Torcello.

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 pricing was appropriate.

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.

The guide was very competent and the whole staff really nice. It is a bit of a fast paced tour, but you definitely get the promised glimpses in the title! 100% recommended!

Overall, we enjoyed the visit. However, there is little time left to explore each island. In Murano, most of the time is spent visiting the Fábrica do Vidro (which is fantastic!). Here, we watch the production of some glass pieces in real time. Right before our eyes. Torcello doesn't have much to do with it. If you are looking for colorful spaces, this is the ideal island. Burano stayed in our hearts. The colors make that place become wonderful and a unique setting. We advise you to take sandwiches for lunch and enjoy the boat trip to eat.

Our only criticism was that we could have done with more time on the islands to enable us to have a meal somewhere.
