    This was a really good and inexpensive way of getting a glimpse of other Venetian islands. Transport was comfortable and the host was very informative. Very enjoyable and relaxing excursion.

Highly recommended

    Only few minutes to Murano island, which is a beautiful place. Most of thr time for demonstration of Murano glass and the shop for buying Murano products.

It was a pretty nice and interesting trip through the lagoon of Venice. But if you want to discover the islands by yourself without time pressure and a guide, we recommend a 24h ferry ticket (20€). It’s valid for all the ferry lines, including the islands around Venice and the Canal Grande.

Well organized and our guide - Charlotte - couldn’t have been more impressive. Managing a crowd is hard enough… let alone doing it in five languages! :)

Not enough time at Torcello to visit the church and museum. It is a lon walk.

We had an amazing experience. Would recommend 100%!
