The boat picked us up at the specified time in front of the train station. The office is very easy to find as it is right next to the train station as soon as you walk outside. The driver left us within walking distance of our hotel. Very nice start to our Venice trip!

Once we found the building, the girl walked us to the boat to make sure we didn't get lost. She was very professional and sweet. It made our first impression of Venice pleasant. The boat ride was fun and it dropped us close to our Hotel. I would highly recommend taking this transfer.

On arrival we went directly to information booth where they informed us that our boat would arrive within 10 minutes. It did. Our driver was wonderful and our ride amazing. He spoke English and filled us in on sites from dock to our hotel. Personalized service on a beautiful boat. Highly recommend this company

Guides were great- thank you Sandra and Martina. Cinque Terre was beautiful. A full and busy day but we were able to hike, swim, and enjoy good food and drinks. If you only have 1 day, I can't imagine a better way to see Cinque Terre.

Great deal. We found it tricky locating the pick up point as there are many which look the same, however it is very close to the train station. There were 6 people on the transfer in total and very luckily the other group were dropped off first so we had the bonus of traveling down the Grand Canal at the start of our Venice holiday! The men on the boat were very friendly and took photos for us. A great way to start your holiday!
