This is by far the best value for money tour I've ever attended. Each island had its individual charm, our guide was fantastic and at the end some prosecco on our final leg of the journey home. We where the only English speakers on our tour but our guide still gave us equal English time as the rest of the group.

Opted for a longer tour as most reviews said that an hour on each island wasn’t long enough, but I found it to be more than enough time, especially for Torcello and San Francesco del deserto. It was a great tour and excellent value for the price. Adding full details of the day to help others :) We arrived early (9:45am for 10:15am departure) but boat didn’t arrive till 10:10am. Tickets first checked on arrival then not required rest of day as we were all in a group. Arrived in Murano at 10:45am, watched the glass blowing show, lasted about 10 mins then free time until 12pm when boat was leaving. Next stop Burano around 12:30pm, free time to explore the island until departure at 2:50pm. Plenty of time to sit down and have lunch, lots of restaurants, small cafes and shops. Next stop Torcello, got there around 3pm with departure at 4pm, wasn’t much to see here. Then San Francesco del deserto at 4:15 with departure at 5:15, we had a talk from a monk. Got the free drink on way back :)

I can only recommend the trip. You get to see all the islands and don't have to constantly worry about a water taxi. Each island has its own highlight. The only drawback I found was the language. We chose the tour in German - but the guide only spoke the language poorly. So we only got a fraction of the information.
