Four of us took this excursion. Had I known in advance that we could have done this by using the Vaporetti. , the public transportation system, we would have done so. It would have allowed for additional sightseeing and shopping. The Vaporetti 4.1 and 4.2 serve the island of Murano every 20 minutes. Our excursion did get us to the Glass Museum in Murano but with just enough time to visit their store. One block away there were many more shops. We just didn't have the time. We were back on the boat heading for Burano. Once again, we saw one lace shop with little or no time to explore the island and then it was off to Torcello. If you have limited time, this excursion is fine. If you wish to explore and shop take the Vaporetti and relax.

We had a nice time and really enjoyed the glass making at island of Murano. The other stops not too much to see or do and it was a very short time allowed at each island. My visit was in winter so not sure if that impacted the not much to see or do. The boat ride was comfortable and enjoyable.

Great trip, however I would suggest that during the winter months, they should make the departure a bit earlier! We traveled on the 1st of January 2017, and only left Venice at 14:00, this meant that by time we reached Burano, the sun was already setting, and we only arrived back in Venice at 18:30.. would have been great to get back slightly earlier. Experience was great though and well worth the money spent!

Not enough seats on boat, only 20-25 min at each stop, the only interesting part of this was leaving the group and finding something else of interest. Just meant for you to buy whatever they demonstrated! Waste of 4 hours

Awesome trip! I do wish we had spent more time in Burano and less in Torcello. By the time you walk to the church and back your time is up in Torcello - no time to see anything.

The Murano glass demo was tied directly to their store selling it's goods.I felt it was a big selling push, not in our best interest to explore island.I suggest visiting Burano independently. We could have spent many hours there instead of the 45 minutes allowed.It's TOO beautiful to rush in/out of.
