Traditional Shared Gondola Ride across small canals to Grand Canal
The gondola is a symbol of Venice, as emblematic of the famous city of canals as it is mysterious in its origins. Experience a half-hour gondola ride that takes you to the heart of Venice as you admire its historic sites as they were meant to be seen.
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

Very nice experience. Would have liked to have heard few words from the gondolier as well- he didnt spoke a word. Guide was lovely, dont know his name but warm person with long hair. didnt need to download anything as the commentary came with device itself and headphones. Worth the money.

It was Ok. The guide was great, he talked english very good. The ride was a little too short, I think no more than 15 minutes and a bit expensive considering that the gondola was shared with unknown people. I say expensive because while in Venice we saw the same price for gondolas no shared.

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.

Very interesting to hear the history of the gondola and the meaning of the boats themselves. Beautiful ride through the canals and into the grande canal. Amazing how they guide the boat with just one oar.

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.

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.

The boat was lovely, tour guide was fantastic. Funny and very informative about Venice in general as well as speaking about the islands. Murano glassblowing was very interesting to watch and the island of Burano was our favourite. Beautiful coloured buildings. We took the afternoon tour which meant we ate lunch before and didnt need to spend our touring time just eating in Burano. There were lovely places for a coffee or for lunch, so whatever your preference.
