Description

In these three islands everything has remained as the times of the Serene Republic as if time has decided to stop at its eternal memory of the glorious past of Venice! The citizens of these three islands are still today contended with the traditional activities of their past: in Murano the people are highly known for their majesty in working glass creating masterpieces with high artistic values. Burano, known for its skillful fishermen, is still surrounded by the numerous colored houses. And finally, Torcello where you will find the antique vestiges, being a migrated population in Venice from a far away time. You will get to know our lagoon, with its various canals, you will immerse in the advent of our history touching with hand those that were the "fondamenta" built more than 1ooo years ago by our ancestors.

Excursion cancelled without notice - Still waiting for refund 3 weeks after
for Andrea Paolo’s tour (Murano, Burano and Torcello)
I booked the boat tour to the Islands and my booking was confirmed by email, with the date, time + meeting point. When I arrived at the meeting point, there was no one. I called and was told that my excursion had been cancelled by mistake and rescheduled the following day, As I was in Venice for work and only had one free day, I was crished because I was not available to reschedule. I was offered a full refund and a free walking tour, in compensation of the cancelled boat tour. Though the evening walk tour was very nice, I am still waiting for the refund that was promised and I have been told that due to the absence of response of the client assistance at Like a Local, I cannot be paid back. I don't know if this is an excuse not to pay me back or if it's true, but in any case the situation is very frustrating and I do not recommend to book tours with this provider.
