The guide Isabel was very kind, providing very good information. Very good excursion although it is worth clarifying that Torcello has little to offer.

Great thank you for money on the whole really good day trip the only downside was that we couldn’t hear the guide at times over the boat engine

Excellent. I liked the demonstration of glass processing, the walk among the colorful houses.
