Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your private guide in central Venice and head to the pier to board your private boat. Set sail around the UNESCO-listed Venice Lagoon and admire the views as you glide past San Giorgio island, Certosa island, and Sant Erasmo island.

Arrive at Murano Island and jump off for a walking tour of the tranquil island, pausing to admire the 12th-century Church of Santi Maria e Donato. Then, discover the island’s claim to fame—Murano glass—as you visit a glass factory, enjoy a traditional glass-blowing demonstration, and perhaps purchase some exquisite hand-made souvenirs.

Back on the boat, it’s a short cruise to Burano Island, where the multi-colored houses and picturesque fishing port make for some striking photo opportunities. After taking in the scenery, pay a visit to a lace factory to discover the island’s rich lace-making heritage.

After returning to the mainland, your tour ends back in San Marco Square.

Long excursion low fee
, Aug 2020
a long excursion for a low fee and also very intresting with kids. the english guide was very good as well
Great island trip
, Aug 2020
Everything was as planned. Alex was a great guide, we learned a lot of interesting stuff about the area. Both islands are very well worth the visit.
Not English focused - not personalized
, Aug 2020
The trip was well organized but the explanations were mostly in French and Italian. I booked an ENGLISH trip and not a mixed group. The guide didn't really connect to the group. Pretty much a non personal guide. Much to improve on that level.
Lunch at Burano
, Jul 2020
We were super happy with the tour. Relaxed and a good vibe all the way. Guide Juan Luca was fun and easy going and suggested lunch places was great. Also nice that we was a small group (due to COVID of course...). We recommend!
Very Good
, Feb 2020
Nice, laid-back tour. The boat ride to Murano and Burano was great and informative. But, the glass of wine on return boat ride back to Venice was even better. Also, the glass-maker's studio and demonstration on Murano was amazing. And the glass gallery/store was nice and well-stocked.
The glass making

Great experience and change of pace from Venice
, Feb 2020
We had a great time on this trip! The weather was beautiful, the glass factory in Murano was sooo cool to see. It was a small tour of about 15 people, the tour guide was pleasant and also informative about all the islands in the lagoon. Burano was beautiful as well, and we had the perfect amount of free time to eat lunch and explore.
Great trip
