Nice tour, especially because of our guide Silvia - with a lot of joy and heart she brought us closer to Burano with many small details, stories and history. Didn't feel like a run-of-the-mill mass tourism tour, but very personal and with a lot of joy in showing. At first we were a little late because of overcrowded vaporettos, so you should allow more time for the journey to Burano, but the contact was also great, everything worked out. Very nice place, lots of photo opportunities and special places, this tour was just right in terms of length, and we're really glad we did it.

oh... what can i say. it was amazing. our guide was so nice and accomodating. we could not find the meeting point and she was so nice to find us. the island itself is small, nice and beautiful. we could easily reach it with vapporitta. sylvia our guide was well prepared, she had beautiful pictures that are so easy to understand. i totally loved this trip and would recommend it to everyone. i know it did not include transportation, but i booked this tour because the guide was local and that meant she/he would have great affection to the place and sylvia really delivered.

One of the most beautiful places to visit! Burano is inspirational and our tour guide Silvia was too. As a local, she made every effort to pass on her knowledge, showing passion and enthusiasm for the way of life and immersing us into the community spirit of Burano. We can’t thank her enough for making our visit to the island something we will never forget and cherish for a long time to come.

Silvia is a local of Burano and her passion for Burano is inspiring. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent tour through the eyes of a local!

The guide is very helpful, is bringing insights about the beginning of Venezia that we did not learn elsewhere. The visit was very pleasant
