Our guide Christina was fantastic, enthusiastic, interested, witty and full of fun, a great introduction to the city, lots of interesting facts and myths about the city which adds to its charm.
What a way to arrive! We came in on a shared water taxi and it was fabulous. The check-in was easy and right there at the airport. A short wait for the other party. Very organized. It is a bit of a walk to the water taxi with your luggage, but we all have to do it to get to the taxi dock. The arrival by high speed boat was amazing...what a way to arrive in Venice! Your first impression to see Venice just appear is fabulous.
What an experience. The taxi slows down once you reach the smaller waterway entrance to the Grand Canal so you have a wonderful first experience entering this city. It is amazing. My husband said he felt like James Bond. The experience portrayed by movies and TV does not do it justice! It was amazing and the best way to start the visit to this wonderful city! Just plain awesome! No other way to go. Highly recommend it. Viator always picks the best....
There just so happened to be a vaporetti strike and people were waiting in LONG lines while we were able to get in our semi private taxi! A great decision to take this affordable ride especially on arrival to Venice. We highly recommend!
This was absolutely the best way to enter the city of Venice! After 13 hours on various planes, the breeze felt fantastic as we bombed along on the water. The boat was gorgeous and the view was so exciting. Luckily we were the last to disembark so we had a bit of a tour along the way.
The only negatives are the walk from the airport is very long and not mentioned in the directions. For people who may have cumbersome luggage or trouble walking, this may be a problem. Also, it was offered that we may be dropped at our hotel if close by. It wasn't the case although our driver was very pleasant.
A very good option - directly to the steps of our hotel! One issue however was that we had been told to make our way to booth 78 to register for the trip. However, 78 doesn't exist - we eventually found that this should have been 71. Luckily we didn't miss the boat but I feel we could possibly have done because of this silly mistake.
The ONLY way to enter Venice. It's the fastest and most interesting providing great views.
Would recommend anyone to book this. Just get off the plane, grap your bags, go to their desk. They will direct you to the boat pick up area which is a 5 minute walk away. Jump abroad the boat and be taken to the nearest stop for your hotel. Perfect way to enter venice.
Tour rep was waiting when we arrived very professional will do this again
The shared water taxi is definitely the way to arrive in Venice being only a little more than the alilaguna.
Had a little trouble in finding the check in desk but no real problem. Check in staff very helpful as was the driver of the boat.
All went as planned and nothing to complain about but on way back we used the local alilaguna sevice which was just as quick, half the price and every 30 minutes, will use this service in the future.
We arrived in Venice after a long trip from Canada. Airport staff very helpful to direct us to the dock. Waited maybe 10 minutes for another couple. The ride was amazing.
Would recommend this service and booking in advance. We were taken to Venice and our hotel was right there. What an amazing way to start a vacation. Thank you.
Hardly a tour but the transfer booked was organised efficiently and speedily. The only point was that an English speaking rep could have actually put us on the boat as we were not at our best after just landing and the boat driver's accent of the hotel/landing names was quite strong.
Initially reserved tickets for a shared ride, and we had to wait for the rest of the passengers. So for 60 more euros we got a private water taxi, worth the money . We were driven to the pier since my husband has mobility issues and cant walk the distance to the pier. Great service by the airport staff.
After a perfect flight with British Airways, we were looking forward to the next part of our journey to Venice. We were not disappointed , we located the check-in desk and were directed to the water taxi pontoon. Luggage loaded, off we went, 2 other couples were on our taxi and we were the last to be dropped off so we had a fabulous extra long ride along the Grand Canal. This is definitely worth booking, the best way to arrive in Venice.
