To big of a group to hear and see all of tour and extremely hot on boa

To big of a group and boat ride in front had "don't open window" and was extremely hot plus that many people. They should of opened window. Lace tour was such a small tour and again to big of a group and couldn't even hear or see what was being said.

Fantastic tour!

We learnt a lot about glass making in Murano and lace making in Burano. Our guide (Manuela) was fantastic and went out of her way to inform on everything important about Venice. Highly recommended!

5/5 stars

Fantastic your guide Ricardo, really enjoyed the whole afternoon. The boat was gorgeous! Well worth the money and really learned a lot from the trip :)

5/5 stars
Delightful experience

We had a great time on the tour. The glass making session on Murano was too good with detailed explanation of the process and intricacies required. Even better was Burano with its picturesque houses and lace making session. Our guide really knowledgeable about the city and its unique history. I recommend this for anyone visiting Venice.

5/5 stars
Very nice day trip.

Loved the size of the group. The guide was marvelous...I wish I remembered her name. The Murano part was ok. Wold have liked to spend more time with the demonstration. The best of the trip was Burano. We cheated and broke away from the group when before the Lace presentation so we could spend more time walking around. We even had time to stop for a drinks (limoncello and spritz). Perfect way to spend the afternoon.
