Pleasant tour, with plenty of time and a fascinating demonstration of glass making. Patient and very thorough staff. The only flaw is the transfer from the meeting point (Riva degli Schiavoni) to the ferry: I think that for reasons of time, the guide had a very fast pace ... no problem for me, but maybe it could be a hitch for people who have difficulties of walking.

Be careful if you don't speak English at all. The only thing that was announced in German was the time when the boat left again. Provides a brief overview of the islands. If you want more time to relax, you should rather take the public bus. Otherwise you will be bagged again after an hour and a half at the latest and there are enough glass blower performances on Murano, for example. Next time we will go private but now we know what to expect.

Meeting point easy to find and above all to reach, very nice, helpful and friendly girls at the counter. All followed in detail, Eva the girl who accompanied us very good. First stop Murano with a visit to the factory, spectacular, too bad it didn't last long and too bad for the little time available to visit the island, on the other hand you can recover with Burano certainly very beautiful and characteristic. Absolutely recommend for the excellent quality / price ratio.
