Great guide who made the afternoon very enjoyable. Time in murano too short. Barely got around display area before being rushed onto boat. Otherwise great dayReviewed by: Peter C, April 2013
It is worth seeing but there are better deals right in Venice. I LOVE Burano....the sweets there are DE-lish and we brought tons home! It's quaint and worth seeing.Reviewed by: Fran A, May 2013
This was a good and informative tour. Interesting to say the least and the pride and effort that goes into the work, it's really worth seeing and possibly buying something after seeing and hearing how its done. The items were beautiful!! The glass factory is a little on the expensive side and even the souvenir shop. No matter what u purchase, they are great either as a gift or for yourself. I did purchase something from the glass factory. If I had known I would have waited and bought from the lace shops. Overall it was good. Definitely not for everyone. Both locations are quiet and basically, it was just us tourists. Our guide Francesca was very nice, knowledgeable and friendly. Also I met a couple of other travelers on this tour and they were pretty awesome as well. Jerry and Fran from Florida.Reviewed by: Rose J, USA, May 2013
The Murano tour only stopped at 1 glass showroom. We did find a bit of time to get out to look at some other places but had to quickly return to get the boat.
Next time we will go to the island by ourselves which we hadn't realised at the time but the ferry stop was quite near our hotel.
Burano was a lovely surprise - a beautiful little town. Our guide was very friendly and informative.
