The glass blowing demo on Murano was enjoyable and the colourful houses on Burano were worth seeing. However, the time spent on the glass show room was too long, and we were only taken to that glass shop on Murano. It would be much better we could take a look at other places and visit other shops on the island.

Very good organization, multi-language explanation throughout the journey. Only downside, arrival directly in the glass factory in Murano, and despite a beautiful demonstration of the glassblower, ..., the visit to Murano lasted only fifteen minutes! The visit to Burano was longer and more enjoyable...

I liked it a lot. During the boat ride they explain detailed things to you and then you have 1 hour free on all the islands. In Murano it falls short, there you could do an hour and a quarter and Torcello 45 minutes

The trip was in a beautifully restored fishing boat - a picture perfect way to spend several hours exploring the other islands. Watching glass blowing on Murano was fascinating, but you do need to be strong to resist the underlying pressure to spend money in the shop afterwards. Burano with its colourful houses was simply stunning and Torcello was so peaceful, it seemed to offer the perfect escape from the pressures of our busy lives. Our guide was charming and unobtrusive - I would definitely recommend this as a great way of exploring the smaller islands.

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).

The first 2 islands were very nice, the last one was not much (a church on an island) There were also people who did the 2 islands tour, I would recommend that to people. A visit to the glass museum is an absolute must as far as I am concerned, but I have not seen a tour in a glass factory (they must mean the museum, but you can visit it at your own expense and opportunity)

A very nice tour. Our first stop, Murano, was interesting because you could see the glass blowing workshop, but otherwise it was rather unspectacular. Burano, on the other hand, is a very beautiful, small, picturesque town. It would have been nice to have had a little more time there (it was about 1 1/2 hours on this tour)
