Well organized tour, departing from Piazzale Roma and returning to Piazza San Marco. First stop in Murano to visit a glass factory with a beautiful demonstration of a master glassmaker, free time to visit the show room and to make some purchases, second stop in Burano with an hour and a half to visit this beautiful island with its colors and its crafts and you also have time to make a short lunch stop. Our guide Isabel was of a unique professionalism and kindness, during the journey she gave an infinity of news and curiosities about Venice and its lagoon, explaining everything in four languages, plus my family and I had to return immediately after the tour with a flight from San Marco airport, Isabel accompanied us to the first boat and gave us all the information to get there on time. I highly recommend this tour. Thanks again Isabel !!!

Quick turn, but sufficient. We left on time from S. Lucia, we made a panoramic tour of the lagoon with commentary from the guide. First quick stop in Murano, we witnessed the processing of a plate and a horse of a very good glass master. Second stop in Burano, a little longer. The tour lasts 4.5 hours and is perfect for those who have little time and want to see as many things as possible here in Venice. The guide Giada, if I'm not mistaken, very nice and cultured. Always available.

Great trip at a fair price

When booking, I made sure to get a German explanation. Unfortunately, it was so bad that we didn't understand a word. Maybe you should just play the different languages off the tape, where they are spoken correctly in the respective language beforehand. Everything else was very good and can only be recommended.
