Good to Know
• The tour is led in English, Italian, Spanish, French, and German.
• You need to exchange your voucher for a ticket before boarding.
The tour is in many languages not only the one you choose! Got to see demonstrations which were fun and loved the free time around the islands. Staff where helpful and informative. If you have little time in Venice good tour to choose.
Worth the trip....
Fantastic trip! Loved the different islands and they were all so unique! I know that this isn't a tour but one thing that would make it better is if when the guide was telling us about the different islands, that she was infront of us talking about them rather than up in a seperate booth with the rest of the staff. It seemed a little impersonal. But otherwise, I loved that we were given 45 minutes on each to explore and take loads of photos.
We had only two days in Venice and wanted to be sure we saw the Islands during our visit. This was a good trip to see things fast, about four hours. We were able to get a taste of the culture and trades at each of three --Murano, Burano, and Torcello. The only negative was that the guide said the same thing in like five different languages, very fast, and of course she couldn't say much then. It would have better to plug in and listen to a detailed narrative in one's own language as many of the boats do on the Seine in Paris.
