Lovely trip. Good commentary. Murano and especially Burano beautiful. Tame end to day with Torcello though. Overall good value, boat trip on wonderful lagoon, comfy boats and all efficient and on time. Great day overall and would recommend. You can miss Torcello and fi nish tour early if you so desire.

The trip was overall very good. The guide was informative and clear and the boat had available seating most of the time. Murano and Burano were very nice and well worth a visit. Torcello wasn't really worth the visit for us, but if you like historical churches I would say to go ( be aware you need to pay to enter any of the buildings in Torcello). Considering a Punto Sabbioni to Venice return is 15 euro via public transport, the cost of this trip is good value for money.

Very good opportunity to visit the 3 islands in one day, unbeatable price and easy because the vapporetto lines do not pin so well. A bit of a tourist factory when you go to the glass blower and the tourist boats wait there in a row, and who pass through the shop to enter and leave. But overall the organization is very good, very punctual.
