I could not imagine visiting Venice without going to see Murano and Burano, it was the highlight of my trip. The guide was very accommodating, speaking English, French, Spanish, and Italian to make sure everyone had a good time. They took us out to see the important sites like the glassblowing demonstration and lace store but then let us have free time. Though I would have liked time to eat lunch, the timing was perfect and gave just enough time to explore everything I wanted to see on both islands and take tons of pictures.
The trip is worth the money. As the engine is quite loud it is really impossible to understand what is being said. Further it is very interesting to see these places. Small advice when in Murano, they will send you to the store to buy things and you will have to wait around half an hour to see how they create the glass object. Just skip the store and go straight to the center of an island unless you like to spend money on glass that would be mine advice.
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was friendly and professional and presented in 4 different languages. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the lace factory, as it was closed that day (which is something I would have liked to know in advance). Overall, it was really good and affordable.
Mattia was excellent, student, venetian, resident of Venice, met our family right at the gate of the cruise ship terminal, and spent 3 hours with us, taking us to San Marco square and the start point of our boat tour. Everything worked great, thanks!!
Great trip to see glass blowing at Murano. Then a visit to the lovely island of Burano. A bit difficult to hear the tour guide so make sure that you sit at the back of the boat. Really helpful staff and well worth the money. Great value.
