    It was a very large group, and you must get back to the boat on time or get left behind. But getting back in time is not too hard to do, and not having to worry about transport is great. This was perfect for me and my husband. Though if you would like more than an hour on any of the islands, then you might opt for getting there on your own.

    I enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration and browsing the show room. Absolutely loved Burano with the numerous choices in shops and restaurants. Eat lunch in Burano- skip lunch in Murano.

    I liked that the tour was well organized and offered the chance to see a bit of every island. We had a short demonstration of Murano glass work and then we were free to visit the islands. Personally I was happy with what I got for the price payed - it would have been a hassle to do this trip by myself with the vaporetto. For those who want to stay more on each island, I would recommend one island per day, otherwise it can get extremely long and tiring.
