It was a nice half day trip. 30min by boat to Murano. About an hour on island - that includes glass blowing presentation + free time. Then 30min to get to Burano. 1,5h of free time on an island. Trip back to Venice took 40min. Tour guide on a boat spoke 5 languages. We did it with two small kids ( 5 years old and 18th the old).

Very nice. The only flaw is the short time on the two islets, in particular Burano. In Murano, seeing the master create real works of art with glass was very exciting. The guide explained and explained everything to us even during the journey by vaporetto. I recommend it, knowing that in Burano you have just an hour of time.

The tour was really great! It lasted 4,5 hours, we visited the two islands including the glass factory in Burano (very interesting demonstration of different techniques), and the guide on the boat explained everything in five (!) languages. And all of this for a very low price. I’d definitely recommend this tour.
