5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Private boat picked us up at the hotel on time and dropped us at the train station. We were met by representative who brought us to our train and made sure we were in the correct car. Very nice service.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The transfer boat arrived five minutes early, the driver was very polite and helpful. There was another gentleman awaiting us at the train station, who took us to our platform. He also was very polite and helpful. I would highly recommend this service to anyone.

Absoluely perfect. After your stay in Venice, you could easily make the trip alone. However, this duo actually deposited me in my train seat! Such a large terminal, i was grateful

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

A hassle free way to be transferred from our hotel to the train station- our transfer ended up having to be at 6am and the hotel concierge arrange an earlier pickup with payment of a surcharge to the company. Would definitely recommend.

The guide was punctual, friendly and made sure we were on the train and so were our bags!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

Had a private transfer, operator tried to put other people on our booking. I strongly informed them of my booking three times at which point they apologized. Then the wait for the boat began!

I was alittle disappointed in our departure guide. She never introduced herself to me. It wasn't until we were in the water taxi that I found out from my mother-in-law that the lady in the hotel lobby texting on her phone was the guide. Our pick-up time was 10:15am and we were ready by 10am. I had stored my luggage with the bell man earlier, so was trying to retrieve it at the front desk. The guide told my mother-in-law to get in taxi, and stood around tapping her foot. In the mean time my husband noticed he left something in the room, so he had to go back. We got all of our stuff together and boarded the taxi
and departed by 10:10am, before our confirmed departure time of 10:15am.
I guess what bothered me most was the unprofessional demeanor of the guide (no acknowledgement and texting, tapping of the foot like we were making her late for something more important) Obviously, we didn't give her a tip.
The water taxi guy on the other hand, was very nice and helpful. We did tip him!
