Best advice is to use the regular boats so you can hop and hop off at your leisure. This tour was all very rushed with no time to look around and explore. Easy to do yourself and the boats are pretty regular

Took the boat tour to the three islands and it was okay. My group really enjoyed going to the first island which was the glass blowing. You saw a demo of how it is done and that was extremely interesting. They also had a shop...More

Sorry for the delay. Had trouble posting my response. There are a few stops. We used the one right by the Venice train station where they sell the tickets for the tour.
