Alessandro is an excellent guide, his knowledge is priceless a rare find as his mum was born on the island of Burano therefore he will show you the secrets of Burano. The factory visit was superb on Murano. The group is a small number, lovely boat. I would suggest you bring a pic nic as the arrival time is 14:30 & no time to sit & eat somewhere on the trip. Absolutely recommend it was so lovely!

Great helf day tour. Enjoyed the boat ride, quick lunch in Burano and Proseco on the ride back. Guide was lovely. Demonstration in the glass factory was perfunctory and really just a prelude to seeing thier showroom and buying what you came to buy. It is a good way to buy something you know is from Murano, particulary if you don't have time to shop the island.

The tour guide was amazing. Really looked after us and told us about the history of Burano and Murano. No time to look in little shops in Burano but did have a large selection at glass factory after demo. You had more time in Burano but you needed to decide to either look at shops or stop for lunch as not really much time to do both. Very pretty place with colourful houses.
