Murano and Burano Tour

The highlight of the tour was Monica - she was amazing! Monica was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and able to present the trip to all members of the family (young and old). Nothing was too much trouble for Monica, including a fantastic Venetian lunch recommendation. No tourists!!!

We had the perfect experience with our guide, Monica. She made us comfortable by asking questions about what we would like to do, and gave us so many facts and interesting stories about Venice history, architecture, tourism - anything we asked. Our trip was tailored to our preferences, with a little more walking and a little less tour time. The glass blowing Murano and lace making Burano demonstrations were worth it! Our lunch on Burano at Trattoria Gatto Nero was a meal well remember for years. Highly recommend this tour, and Monica!,

Alessandra was our brilliant tour guide for our visit to Murano and Burano. She was very interesting to listen to as she told us about many of the important buildings along the Grand Canal as we made our way out of Venice. The Murano factory is fascinating, with an amazing demonstration from the artisans creating those wonderful sculptures. After the demonstration we got a chance to wander through the amazing gallery of works that have accumulated, incredible. Burano was a beautiful island with a very cute town, we saw a very brief demonstration of the lace work that makes the island famous and then enjoyed a traditional Burano biscuit as we strolled through the streets learning about the leaning tower and the town square.

Worked perfectly to meet our expectations. A good half day spent in both the islands. Glass factory tour followed by a couple of hours in Burano. A tour of the Grand Canal on the way. A perfect private experience for us a family of four.

We were well looked after by Catty our guide on this tour and one of us ended up blowing a glass bowl, well nearly. Towards the end of the tour we told Catty we would like to spend some of the afternoon at a sensible eating place near our cruise ship and she took us to exactly the right thing. A good 5 hours on this tour.

Amazing tour! I was almost was going to book a shorter tour as we are a relatively impatient and spoiled couple who already visited so many places in the world. But this tour was just perfect! Mainly because of our Super Guide Giovanna a dynamic and enthusiastic young women who has the intelligence to make the right balance between narrating and being quite to let us enjoy the moment. She is an active instagramer, thus also experienced at taking good pictures and videos. So we didn't have to worry about the photography like the typical tourist, but still had great pictures at the end of the Journey. Another factor which was perfect: the weather. It was February but still a sunny day with no clouds. Finally, we liked the flexibility in the organisation: with pick-up / drop-of times and locations and the optional catering against additional costs if needed. There are probably limitations on what can be served, but it is worth asking if you want something special on board. We enjoyed a bottle of Champagne :-

We had a really lovely morning with our excellent guide Roberta. She was extremely knowledgable and clearly very passionate about her home town. Our trip included the Grand Canal and many smaller canals where we saw a little bit of ordinary Venician life. We then visited one of the glass workshops on Murano where we watched a fantastically skilled artist at work and visited the incredible showroom. Then on to Burano which is completely different a very pretty island with colourful houses and lots of restaurants and cafes. It was a beautiful sunny day which made it all the more pleasant.
