This was less of a tour and more just transportation to each island. The glassblowing demonstration was interesting but was in a very large group so you don't get a close up view until the end to see the finished pieces. The glassblowing factory prices where you get the discount were higher than other shops in the area, even with the discount and we enjoyed visiting all the shops in Murano. Just a heads up, our tour was for 11am and the boat left 5-10 minutes early so give yourself plenty of time to get to the meeting point early because it was a little tough to find and you leave from there even earlier than the boat takes off. Not a ton of time at each island and felt a little rushed but good for a first visit and to still have some of your day in Venice!

A great day trip out. The glass blowing demonstration was absolutely amazing! Burano was stunning and I wish we had more time on the island to wander around as once you have lunch there isn’t much time left. The last island was nice but not a lot to do there, all the sites are at the end of the island about 5/10 min walk and all together. Entrance is not expensive at all max €5 for one option. All in all a great day out and would Highly recommend

Prompt departure and arrivals at the specific docks. Staff was friendly. The departure times were given on board and again was you debarked for a short journey ashore. The glass factory was a treat. Burano was great and vibrant. You can walk across the island in about 15 minutes. The oldest city was also nice, however you have to pay for all entries if you desire. Departed at 1102 and arrived back at the port of departure at 1705. Overall, great trip glad we did it.
