Great to get transported to the islands with free time to wander around yourself. The boat rides were very pleasant. Loved Murano and Burano! Torcello was a bit of a waste of time as you had to pay to get into the museum etc but not enough time to do those really.

Organisation was great, booking etc convenient, but for me there was too much rush, it is good option to do quit visits to the three island but not enjoy these islands. If you are not fit, you do not have enough time to climb to the Torcello church tower, which offers great views to the Venezian laguna. Be prepared, when you are not in time in the ship you will be left on the island ja you should take vaporetto etc to return to Venice.

Visited Murano, Burano and Torcello. Glass blowing exhibition interesting but would have been enhanced with commentary. Burano was perfect and just the right amount of time there. Torcello was a little rushed and would have preferred longer to enable a leisurely visit to the Basilica (we decided against going inside due to time constraints). Our guide, Francesca, was excellent, noticing that one of our party walked with a stick she gave us additional assistance. A great day out but I think it could be improved if the itinerary started with Torcello, and allow 1.5 hours fir a visit to the Basilica, the Burano then Murano, so if you purchase you are not carrying the purchase around all day.
