wonderful experience if you want to see the Laguna highly recommend Burano Island - with peaceful and colourful architecture:

We had a wonderful time. I really enjoyed the lacerating and the lady that was available to show us was very kind. Thank you

Could have done without Torcello but absolutely loved this tour, would do again!
This tour if started at 10 Am we could have visited more units and highly recommended to see true culture of Venice
One of the best sightseeing tours for tourist visiting Venice and wants to cover the adjacent islands Murano, Burano and Torcello. The guide was very informative and provide detailed history of all the small islands nearby . We started at 2 pm and finish the tour by 6 30 pm at San Marco. I highly recommend this tour.
A well organised tour with an amazing guide who switched seamlessly between 4 languages! The only disappointment is that I would have liked more time on Torcello. I didn't know until I was there what a truly amazing island it is. I would recommend this tour as a good introduction to the islands.
Fantastic trip and great value for money. We loved visiting the three islands, if anything more time on Torcello and Burano would be appreciated. We had beautiful fine, winter weather for our day and it was all quite magical.
This tour was a little dissapointing! Needs to be more organized getting on boat etc.
We decided to stay on first stop, got recommendations for lunch , and took our own private
boat back to Venice which was arranged by restaurant owner!
The tour was really worthwhile and excellent value for the price.
The scheduling was perfect and allowed us to visit sites and places
we normally would have overlooked.
Beatiful Islands in the Lido not too far from Venice. Burano and Torcello were the best!
For the price, one of the best tours we did while in Italy. A nice change of pace from all the crowds and each Island had it's own unique charm and character. We did visit Murano in the past on another tour, but all three Islands offered on this tour were awesome.
It was a really nice trip, i'll never forget this day.
It was rainy and cold. Can and #39;t control Mother Nature. My children and I still enjoyed this tour.
Lovely tour, Burano is beautiful, would have loved longer there to look around. Glass blowing demo on Murano was interesting and had a lovely Aperol Spritz on Torcello. This was my second time on this particular tour and would definitely book it again if I'm lucky enough to visit Venice again.
Wonderful day trip. Great way to see Murano glass, Burano lace and colorful houses, and quiet Torcello.
This tour is worth your time!!

We were there in Sept 2015. The tour start at time and the schedule in each island was executed as they programmed. The experience in the Murano's factory was short but the shop was amazing. The three islands are beautiful and the trip in the vaporetto was a nice experience.
great tour, enjoyed it very much.
Three beautiful islands! Off the beaten track!
Our tour guide was amazing! Wonderful to see these hidden treasures in Venice. Not only did we enjoy delicious food and wine, but we met wonderful new friends and have such great memories to bring home with us! Thank you, thank you!
Perfect time for this outing. 45 minutes on each island was a good viewing time.
Excellent history, great places visited! Thanks for a good time.
This is a great way to see the other side of Venice, more tranquil and less crowded. It's fascinating to see how the glass blowing and lace industries in Murano and Burano are still thriving after all these years. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative about the islands and the surrounding communities and she was fluent in English, Italian, Spanish and French. The boat ride was pleasant and the lunch in Torcello is highly recommended.
Great way to see the islands! Our kids loved the boat ride and scenery!
