Unfortunately the day we originally booked to go - transport in Jesolo was cancelled and we couldn’t get to the Port. The team were fantastic and responded within 24hrs to say we could use our vouchers on any other day. The actual trip was excellent - well organised - ran well to time and great value for money. Burano is particularly beautiful and felt very relaxing. Would recommend highly.

Great trip, thoroughly recommended. Tour guides very informative & pleasant. Definitely one to do for a taster of the 3 islands. We are doing Burano again on our own as we enjoyed it so much
