We were met on arrival at Venice Airport by a young lady who had our details for our Transfer.
She then passed on the details to a young man who escorted us to our Private Water Taxi waiting to transfer us to our accommodation. The Water Taxi was lovely and the ride in was very smooth.
Our accommodation was at the Hotel Al Duca De Venezia. He dropped us off at a spot, helped us with our bags off the Taxi, then told us it was just up the way .... a few directions of " walk straight ahead and it will be a couple of alleys on, the left." After about 20 minutes to half an hour up and down here and there. We asked a few locals in shops. We had actually been dropped off at the wrong canal entrance !
Very frustrating .... Our Hotel was an easy direct walk if we had been dropped off at the right stop !!!
Not impressed at all as we paid top dollar to have a private transfer ! We later found out we could have jumped in any other Water Taxi waiting .... and they very obligingly take you to the right drop off point and some even escort you to your Hotel..... with less than half what we paid. !! $$$$ beware
