We were picked up by water taxi at exactly the time they said they would. We had a very nice transfer travelling around the canals enjoying the view which was a very good end to our Venice holiday. This was a shared transfer but no-one else was picked up so we enjoyed the journey by ourselves. Would highly recommend to family and friends.

Very accurate timing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Excellent service. We were picked up at our departure point as instructed. We received a fax the evening before at our hotel explaining the pickup time and pickup point with time to arrive. Our Venice hotel was not far from departure point. Boat driver was on time and assisted us with our bags. The boat is usually a taxi boat which is quick and spacious. We arrived at train station dock with plenty of time for our train. Driver was courteous and helpful when I asked for best direction to enter train station. I would definitely recommend.

On time pick up, although the driver didn't have the right drop off information we needed to go to the train station and he thought we were getting off at the airport we made it to the train station just in time to board our train. Just make sure you let your driver know where your drop off is and you'll be fine.

Fantastic. Smooth. As they had promised.

Easy transport to train station. I would only recommend that you don't schedule too early because you don't need much time on the train.

I give this 5 stars even though the driver forgot to take us to the train station at first lol. It was great though. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him bounce to the jazz music on his radio and then Miami Vice our boat to the train station from the airport thus, getting us to the train station on time. He has a great attitude and really started our day off right. Tell him we said thank you.

Excellent, the water taxi was on time. My husband and I were the only passengers!! The hotel received our reminder of our pick up time and directions to the meeting point. This is a great service and will use Visitor for our future trips.
