We did the private boat tour in Venice of Murano and Burano. Our guide was excellent! Her English was great! We traveled with 3 children ages 2-13 and this was perfect as we were in no rush and our guide was kind and patient. We saw a lot and learned some about the history of Venice plus about the lace and glass making. Definitely worth the money!

The Murano glass factory tour was very interesting and informative, and we were able to watch the work up close, as well as shop for glass! Murano is perhaps even more interesting, because it is so charming, with lots of good shopping. The boat ride across the lagoon was beautiful. This tour is a great way to see areas outside of Venice itself.
