This tour was very personal with excellent guide and boat crew. The glass factory was beautiful and we felt we made some nice purchases without pressure and had no need to see other factories. The boat ride was fun and the scenery and information excellent. Highly recommend this excursion.

Great excursion, even our teenagers had fun. Great way to see the other parts of Venice and get a great feel for the entire area and it’s his. Our guide was great. On time and waiting for us in our hotel lobby near San Marco Square. Very informative and knowledgeable. Definitely worth the price for my wife and myself and our 3 kids aged 12,14, and 16

Despite bad weather the tour went smoothly, and the guide was lovely. It would be even better on a good day - not too crowded either.

Our tour guide was awesome and we are so happy we booked a private tour. We were able to move at our own pace. Loved the history of the outer islands.

My wife and I had a private tour of just Murano and Bruno, we skipped Torcello on advice of our guide Paola and it was a great suggestion. The glass factory and demonstration was great. We purchased something but there was not a lot of pressure to buy. Murano is a beautiful island, very colorful and the lace stores r amazing. But it was all made better but our guide Paola she was the BEST!! Well worth the extra money for a private tour, we saw what we wanted and for as long or as short as we wanted.

We are a family of 5 and thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip to Murano and Burano, these two islands are definitely a must see while visiting Venice. Our lovely guide, Miss Kitty was fantastic and had an extensive knowledge of Venice. We would highly recommend this fun experience to anyone coming to Venice. Miss Kitty also recommended an awesome restaurant afterwards which was much appreciated. Many thanks.

This is an excellent tour if you want to escape the crowds in Venice and get out on the water. Mrs. Martinez, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She was willing to customize the tour to allow us to spend more time in the areas we were most interested. Murano glass blowing is very special to witness. An added bonus is that one of your group participates. Burano is so beautiful and relaxing. Lace making there is a dying art form so go witness it while there is still time! Everyone in our family loved this tour from age 19 to 65.

Absolutely amazing experience. We spent the day with Katy who was fantastic. She told us everything we wanted to know, gave us a feel of true Venetian life and we came away with knowledge that we could not have learnt on a group tour. This tour is a MUST for anyone visiting this area

I loved this tour! They picked us up at our hotel on the water. Our tour guide was awesome, so knowledgeable. She took great pictures of us too all over. We ended up taking her to lunch with us. This tour was a hilite of Venice and the 2 islands of Burano and My tank. Great memories.

Our tour was simply great and our Guide, Fredericka, was a delight to spend time with. She was a great companion, clearly loved Venice and could answer all of our questions, and enhanced our experience with personal stories and recommendations. We felt so comfortable with her and our boat captain. I highly recommend this experience to all.

Super! Francesca, our guide, was pleasant, knowledgeable, and adapted to our specific interests and needs one of our party of 4 had difficulty walking great distances because of an injury that morning. The Colleani factory in Murano was fascinating to visit. They craft some beautiful pieces there. Barbara, our guide there, explained the glass-making process well and even allowed one of us to help create a work. We found the usual sales pitch at the end tolerable there was some push to make a deal but nothing that exceeded the bounds of courtesy. Burano is scenic and more serene than Murano, and our guide gave us a good tour of the island and its lace-making shops. We appreciated the transportation arranged by the factory, which allowed us to bring our luggage and be dropped off right after our tour at the train station. Overall we had a most enjoyable and memorable time and saw lots in only 4 hours or so. We highly recommend this tour.

Worth every penny! Best day in venice with an amazing guide on a beautiful boat. Would it do it again when we're back!
• Submitted 07 Oct 2017
What a deal! It's the best option out there to get a real feel for the area. Fantastic boat, boat Owner/Captain and a private tour guide. Booking says 4 hours and they took us around for 6 hours at their will and request. Absolutely incredible.

This tour included touring the islands in a beautifully decorated Venetian fishing boat. Federica was a lovely and knowledgeable guide that clued us in a lot of things that a group tour would miss. The glass factory was fun but watch out for the salesman as they can be a little pushy.
