I would love some perspective and any guidance...
We are booked with a venice tour guide to tour us ( 10-15mins) on the Grand Canal then take us to Murano. Once there, he says he'll deposit us and wait for us on the boat. We are going to go to a factory where he says my daughter can blow glass and she can take a 40 min workshop.
The tour costing us 310euros cash ( and a USD47 deposit) is for 3 hours. I thought it was a guided tour. He says if we have time to spare he can take us to Burano. But he won't be touring us around but dropping us off.
Is the 310 euro fee a rip off? Would we be better off taking a water taxi to each place?
There are 4 adults and a child in our group. We are doing the water taxi for the 2 grandparents in the group. So we won't be taking the vaporetto or other means of slower transportation.
Does anyone know what a water taxi would cost from the San Marco area to Murano? Then from Murano to Burano. How long is the ride between the 2 islands. I'll take my seasick meds but extended trips make me a little dizzy.
I would appreciate your advice and insight.
