The islands were lovely but as the glass demonstration was divided in two groups, and ours was the second, it’s 10/15 minutes taken away from our free time to explore Burano. We were also supposed to have 20% off on our purchases at the glass factory, but this discount was not provided, which is unfortunate. Most of the things we wanted to explore in Burano were too far away to go after the demonstration. Murano was lovely and had time to have lunch and enjoy the island. 1h in Torcello is not enough to explore, better to choose a trip with just the other two islands were that hour is put towards them.

Tour was great , to see around and spend some hours outside center Venice, Murano stop time was very short, we didn't have enough time to see around, Burano, was better planned. Toricello was unnecessary for my opinion, this part, could be added to Murano time, but it is my opinion, there might be others who would like to see also Toricello with some archaeological artifacts and monuments.

A good way how to get a glimpse of the islands. The time spent on Burano could be a little longer, as we arrived just at lunch time and everything was busy, so it was risky to sit down and have food, as we could possibly miss the departure time. When sitting downstairs towards the back the sound of the engine doesn't let you hear the commentary of the guide.
