This is an excellent tour to have an overall introduction to Murano, Burano, and Torcello, without diving too deep into the details of each island. Perfect if you have never visited them and want to get an idea, less suitable if you want to gain in-depth knowledge about them. We were a small group, so the company booked a taxi, which was an absolute treat. Great first time to the Lagoon Islands, our favourite was Burano (we got covid masks with handmade lace! So stylish). Live demonstrations of glass blowing and lace making are included. The guide was approachable and knowledgeable, keeping us on time without making us feel rushed.

The desk was very helpful. It was a bit further of a walk than we were told but this wasn’t an issue. Our driver was brilliant and dropped us right at our hotel. You can book the public water bus when you arrive for cheaper but we booked the shared private and because of Covid we were the only ones on the boat, so got a boat all to ourselves!

Definitely value for money, you get enough time on each island to explore comfortably and the glass blowing show was very informative. The guide was a little hard to understand at times over the speakers, especially if you're sitting outside on the deck of the boat, but it was in four languages and interesting none the less.

Stefano is a terrific guide! He explained the history and architecture relating to St. Mark’s Bacilica and Doge’s Palace in an easy to understand manner and with a strong knowledge foundation. His background as an architect added another positive dimension. The 3 hour tour went quickly. We highly recommend taking it.

This tour is a definite recommendation, a must-do for everyone interested in Venice's history. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, with an in-depth response for everyone extra question we had and brought across the information in a way that was engaging and fun to listen to.
