Only downside, you have to locate the ship and ask, because there was no assistant with an explicit sign. For the rest all beautiful. Antonella, the guide, tells the history of the islands in detail during the journey. In Murano, the factory and glass processing are beautiful. We have now a fabulous spritz.

This is not a tour, but a hop-on hop-off boat tour with audio guides (as noted in the title). The tour provider was easy to find in San Marco and we enjoyed the clean and spacious boat rides to Murano and Burano. We did not get off at any other islands, but we enjoyed the trip around the lagoon.

Good transportations and arrangement I didn’t like Torcillo as it has nothing inside and I wish if we could stay more in Murano city

Well organised and executed by all staff. the guide even spoke 5 languages.

We very much enjoyed our trip to the different islands
