A beautiful day in Murano and Burano! Loved the demonstration of glass making in Murano and the charm and beauty of Burano. Appreciated that the tour also included tours of other islands by boat. A wonderful day!!!

First, we took the boat to Murano island which has the church of Santa Maria and the glass demonstration / giftshop. Then we went to Burano island for an hour which is smaller but has a lot of nice shops and relaxing areas. Finally we took the hour boat ride with a glass of wine to get back to the docks of Venice.

Fantastic day trip
Andrew_F

I had been warned by friends to skip Murano and Burano because it was mostly about buying lace and glass. While that is in part true and there are shopping opportunities, this was a great tour. The boat ride there was fun onto itself. You get a sense of the geography that Venice is built upon and it was wonderful to get out of the very hot summer city and be on the water. Murano was beautiful and fun and we had a fantastic lunch at one of the many restaurants. The glass demonstration in Burano was eye popping. We thoroughly enjoyed our day, and the guide was excellent too.

Scenic boat ride
Dorothy_P

We loved the scenic boat ride viewing several different islands that make up Venice. Since I have already watched glass blowing at other venues and have two pieces of Murano glass I inherited it was a repeat for me but not for the rest of our group. I really wished we would have had more time at the lace island, it was too quick for me.

Lovely boat trip to Murano and the glass factory, fascinating demonstration and some beautiful pieces in the shop (slightly out of my price range!). Travelled further on to Burano to see the lace making and lovely coloured buildings occluding the leaning church tower. Lovely boat trip home including a glass of Prosecco. Excellent afternoon trip, great value for money. Really enjoyed it, thoroughly recommend it

The lace making was somewhat underwhelming, however we didn't mind that so much as Burano itself is a beautiful place. The Glassblowing was excellent! The tour guide was friendly, and the boat rides were pleasurable! Definitely recommend if you're looking to explore more of Venice!

The guide was very good and gave lots of information during the boat ride as well as on both islands. Just wish we had more time on Burano as it seemed rushed to me.

Our guide was amazing! She taught us so much about Venice, Burano, and Murano. We recommend taking this trip at the beginning of your time in Venice as she gave us lots of tips about what the best things are to do in the city.

Nice mellow adventure
geoffrey_B

Nice little adventure at both islands. As others have stated, it would be nice to have a little more time in Burano to explore. The highlight of Murano was the glass blowing artisan, The glass gift shop was interesting but you don’t need that much time there. The boat is slow so it takes some time, but it’s a scenic trip.

Fantastic tour of Murano and Burano!

Where to begin! What a fantastic tour of Murano and Burano! We visited a church and a glass factory in Murano. We watched a fascinating glass-blowing demonstration. In Burano, we got to explore the town and take in the beautiful sights. Our tour guide, Gabriel, was amazing! We learned so much about Venice and the surrounding areas in the lagoon while on our boat ride to and from the islands. Highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Venice!

Had a great time!
Michael_S

Had a great time, our guide, I believe his name was Alex was great! The cost was reasonable being that it includes transportation. Took about a half day with time in Burano to do lunch for about 45 minutes so if I were you I would review restaurants in Burano otherwise your just guessing. Overall worth it but wished that the Glass Blowing demo was longer as it truly is amazing and is an art.
