Maya J.
First of all Nicole was amazing, a true historian. She shared a lot of stories on our round trip to both islands. Muranos factory I was a little hesitant about but, it’s a labor of love that has been on going for centuries. If you can please go. Burano was absolutely beautiful even in the rain. The second leaning building don’t miss it.

Meeting point was clear. Our guide was very thoughtful and outgoing, making sure that everybody felt at ease. I would recommend this cruise. Seeing Burano + Murano is enough. Even if Torcello is also beautiful, it would lengthen the trip and might be redundant. We saw an impressive glass blowing demonstration in Murano (-20% off in the shop), I only wish we had time to stroll in the island (we only stayed on the island for the demonstration).

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 is perfect for this time of Covid, because the steamships are full of people, and here you go practically alone, it is very clean and they have excellent service. The only thing that you have to plan well, because they tend to pass every hour at each stop and as it has 2 routes, time is wasted, especially since the last minute ones are quite early

We loved having the tours of Murano and Burano and the opportunity to get on the water, while in Venice. Flavia was an excellent guide, friendly and informative. She also helped us to get to the oldest bookstore in Venice!

Well organised host trip to Murano and Burano. Glass making 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.

The demonstration at the glass factory in Murano is very interesting, but very short. It is necessary to control your time carefully during stops, especially if you need to eat something. The audio from the guide's microphone was very bad and I couldn't understand it very well. Overall, the trip is worth it.

Thomas B.
The price is quite good compared to other options, however it is a little tedious having to listen to the guide repeat the same information in 5 different languages, because there comes a time when he is talking about monuments or places that are no longer in sight While the boat is moving, it would be preferable to book something smaller with the preferred language. Aside from that, the overall experience is good and the guide is very helpful and friendly.
