      Phenomenal experience, It is very worth doing the tour, after spending a few days in Venice, going out to see Murano and Burano rounded off the trip. Much quieter, but with the same charm and with its peculiarities that make them special. Georgia was our guide, a very attentive girl, she cared about everything and her Spanish was perfect, something to be appreciated. I would certainly repeat.

      It got off to a bad start because the travel carrier is not immediately understood from the booking confirmation message (we are talking about waiting for the blue boat) and not the pier or the company. But the crew immediately made us feel at ease! Fantastic experience for the kindness, clarity and directions of the guide (Giorgia) and the captain! Thank you so much! There was no air conditioning in the boat which would have been useful given the temperatures but also that the full load of passengers.

      I could not imagine visiting Venice without going to see Murano and Burano, it was the highlight of my trip. The guide was very accommodating, speaking English, French, Spanish, and Italian to make sure everyone had a good time. They took us out to see the important sites like the glassblowing demonstration and lace store but then let us have free time. Though I would have liked time to eat lunch, the timing was perfect and gave just enough time to explore everything I wanted to see on both islands and take tons of pictures.
