Great time and beautiful weather. Fairly quick turnaround on each island but overall well worth the trip. The history of each island is also very interesting.

I think the word “tour” is a little misleading. We were provided transportation to three islands: Murano, Burano, and Torcello. The lady over the speaker did give a bit of information at some points during the boat ride, but hardly anything more than a few...More

For the price you can't go wrong. If you are in Venice for a while, you might want to go to Burano (my personal favorite) for longer then the 45 minutes they give you. If you are here for only a few days, well worth...More

Especially liked Murano Island and the glass furnace where we saw an expert glass blower at work...fascinating to witness how skillful he was. All round a great day out.

We booked this on the internet and it was well worth the money. At Murano, they stop at glass blowing demo and then you look through the shop. If you don't intend to buy any, try not to spend too much time and instead go...More

This tour features 3 islands: Murano, Burano, and Torcello. Murano is a touristy place with shops where you can buy glass jewelry, etc. The next island, Burano, is by far the nicest of the three as it is very picturesque. The last island is pretty...More

You won’t have time to explore much, and the boat is so noisy that the whole experience just got exhausting. We couldn’t hear the guide either.

The meeting place was easy to find and the boat was comfortable and safe. However, it was really difficult to understand anything the tour guide said over the mic on the boat as she would quickly move from language to language and it was quite...More

We were disappointed in this 'tour' as the engine was so noisy and the 'guide' spoke English very poorly and fast. None of us could understand her, in any language. The windows were so dirty you had to stand up to the open windows or...More

We took the ‘Island Excursion’ to Murano, Burano, and Torcello. The tour consisted of three 45 minute stops which were very rushed. The Murano stop was a definite tourist trap. We were herded into a glass factory warehouse where they were running late with their...More

Sorry for the delay. Had trouble posting my response. There are a few stops. We used the one right by the Venice train station where they sell the tickets for the tour.

Hi, I strongly recommend you not to buy a tour to visit the 3 islands. I've just done it and it isn't (the tour) worth the money. We just didn't have enough time to visit the island, which is very sad because they are... More
