A 1-hour stay on the island promises to be an interesting and exciting experience. Next on your itinerary is the island of Burano, where crochet work thrives and the town is famous for its brightly colored houses.

Burano boasts magnificent landmarks, such as the leaning bell tower and the main square, Piazza Baldassarre Galuppi, named after the great 18th-century composer. You have 1.5 hours to explore the island and browse some local lace shops.

Great experience and not too expensive! I’m giving only 4 stars because they got held up and we lost time to visit the island of burano… we only got 1h30 there

Great tour with a great group leader Georgia. She had great command over four language and was very clear in her English. The way they showed us the various important landmarks of Venice along the route made it as a city tour as well which we really liked. The time given at Murano Burano was also sufficient as we felt. ( if you want to spend more, one can come separately but with a tour I think time given was very sufficient). Transported in a big enough boat with good views . 10/10 from my side.

Well organised host trip to Murano and Burano. Glassmaking demonstration was good. Not long on each island but enough to get a flavour and take lots of photos. Boat ride was interesting with information given by the guide. I think it was good value and would recommend as a half day trip which doesn’t eat into a short break in Venice too much. Loved the colourful houses on Burano which was the main reason for booking.

Just nice, and we wanted to take an individual picture on the gondola but was told many others are waiting as we are still in the gondola before we leave. I was disappointed with it and the only picture we took for ourselves, like in a group or selfie, not an individual.

activity was good however it felt very rushed at both locations. at the meeting point the guide failed to hold up a sign so it was difficult to find the meeting point. we had to ring the company to get better information. Murano particularly rushed with most of the time spent lining up for the glass blowing demo

Tourist guides are very knowledgeable and inform in different languages. Going to the glass town of Murano is a must while being in Venezia. The boat ride is very pleasant and can be enjoyed from the inside and outside. The time and hours are more than enough as you get to experience some creations of glass objects, enjoy the colorful town of Burano and make it back to Venezia on time for a wonderful afternoon and late lunch if you didn’t have a bite in Burano.

Most of the allotted time at Murano was spent in a queue getting off the boat and then waiting for the glass blowing demonstration. There was no time to see Murano itself. The demonstration was good though, the glass is beautiful. Tip, sit downstairs on the boat and get off quickly. Burano was lovely, and we had time to walk around and get lunch.

A lovely half day trip (4 hours) just enough time on the islands (just over an hour on each) to get some great photos and browse the shops. Glad we took this trip to visit such beautiful peaceful islands and get out of the city for a bit.

I highly recommend this perfect trip to Murano and Burano. It was beautiful, informative, and a shopping extravaganza! I wish I had done the full day tour to spend more time! One negative was the meeting place!!! Give yourself extra time. 8 of us waited with no guide meeting us!
