The first stop is Murano Island, which is famous all over the world for making glass. You will have the opportunity to visit a glass factory and observe a local artist shaping a glass sculpture. You will then have some time to explore the island and take in the beautiful views.

Burano, one of the lagoon's most tranquil and beautiful islands, is the next destination. Burano has a long history of producing lace and is well-known for its colorful houses. Before the boat returns to Venice, you will have ample time to explore the island and take in the tranquil setting.

Unforgettable experience with my biba. Small negative point: the level of French of the guide but otherwise top enough time to do everything

Extremely good value for money if you are short of time in Venice and would like to experience the neighbouring islands of Murano and Burano. I'm glad we chose this way to see both islands as I'm not sure we could have saved much doing it on our own. Really nice to see a glass making workshop in Murano where you get around 45mins to look around the island. Ideally you'd like to spend longer here and look in the glass shops etc but the tour enables you to get a flavour. Burano is beautiful isl...

Burano is prettier than Murano, very pleasant to visit. We were surprised at the size of the island. The representation of the glass blowing in Murano was very beautiful to see. I recommend. ATTENTION: come well 30 to 15 minutes before for registration

Top notch trip. The guide should revise his French a bit

I advise to follow the guidance of arriving 30 mins before, as you will have to collect the tickets from a kiosk ( many people were queuing up and we were just about to miss our boat) The trip itself was amazing and relaxing. Lots of information provided in 5 different languages.

Excellent visit but the departure was complicated. In fact, you have to register at the small "murano" kiosk and you come to pick up. The start is further away. Very nice afternoon...

A great way to see the islands, as you unfortunately have to change boats on Murano if you use public transport. The problem with changing boats is that there is a fierce queue for the boat to Burano. We gave up the queue at Murano and headed back to Venice.

The tour was nice, interesting to see the glass working. Unfortunately little time available. Beautiful, enchanting Burano.
