I think it's a good option if you want to take on the three islands in one day. There is not much information given by the tour guide so you're basically just paying to get transported between the islands. You do get to see a blown glass demonstration in Murano.
Don't miss the chance to live a unique and unforgettable experience, framed by the timeless beauty and serenity of the enchanting city of Venice. The Venetian Galleon will wait for you in front of the Museo Storico Navale in Venice and, once on board, the crew will lead you to your reserved table to offer you a delicious welcome drink. The candlelight, the elegant tables, a fine and well-finished service, and the charm of a boat of other times will be the perfect setting of your wonderful evening out, for an unforgettable dinner immersed in the magic of the Venetian Lagoon. At dusk, the Galleon will slowly leave shore and head into the northern lagoon, with its mysterious canals, while the minor islands such as Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto reveal themselves to you one after another. During dinner, you will taste a variety of delightful specialties prepared by the chef on b...
A beautiful, charming, delicious evening. The food was outstanding, the staff extremely gracious and the scenery breathtaking. Judy a superb delight.

This was exactly as advertised. An inexpensive tour of the four islands with a well-informed tour guide. The glass demonstration was amazing. The food on Burano was delicious, the little hike on Torcello was great. It was well worth the money and the time.
The tour takes place on a floating lounge created by Italian interior designer Alessandro Bianchi. With large windows and open spaces, this exclusive eco-vessel provides hop-on hop-off tours of Venice. It lasts around 2 hours and 15 minutes and can be approached all in one – to get the first glimpse of Venice – or slowly, stopping where and for how long it suits you best. In addition to being comfortable and elegant, the local partner's boats are built with the latest technology and a new patented hull that reduces wave motion, which undermines the stability of the city’s foundations. To ensure the safety and comfort of passengers, limited seats are available and you are free to get on and off the boat as many times as you wish. From Santa Lucia Central Station, the boat will lead you to the very heart of Venice: the treasures of St. Mark's Square, and the island of Murano, where you wi...
It was good experience if you want to discovery islands in the Venice lagoon. Team was very friendly and helpful. I used both lines and made stops in two places: Murano and Burano. It took almost all day - from 9 AM till 5 PM.

The city is very beautiful but the only problem is everything looks the same at one point and i got lost I couldn’t find the ship. Because they have so many in different parts of the city. But despite that was very nice.

I didn't like just the loud comment of the guide. Through the hoarse speakers. very annoying. it would be better through the headphones. otherwise the journey was very pleasant.
Sail to Murano, visit one of the island’s glassworks, and attend a demonstration of a master glassmaker. Alternatively (or additionally), you can walk to the lighthouse or opt for a visit to the iconic sights of Murano, such as the Basilica of Santi Maria and Donato, the Glass Museum, and Palazzo da Mula. Next, visit Burano, highlighted by its colorful houses. Enjoy some free time to visit the leaning bell tower, the house of Bepi Suà, or the Lace Museum.

The visits to Murano and Burano are worth it. I didnt find Torcello very interesting. Apart from a church and a Bell tower (that you have to pay to visit) and a few restaurants, there's nothing else. The ride was nice. The guide spoke 5 languages and spoke too fast. So it was kind of hard to follow
