Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Departure Transfer. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Definitely worth it, as public transport in Venice is a bit confusing, specially trying to figure out the Vaporettos, or public boats, which tend to be pretty busy, so not great with luggage. I didn���t really expect it, but I really enjoyed being on a private water taxi, which felt a bit like being on a limousine on the water. And great being picked up from the hotel by a host and taking our luggage to the water taxi.
We found the service excellent and would recommend it to our friends and family.
Such a nice (and easy!) way to depart from your hotel. We took the guide option and he was interesting and helpful. It's on the pricey side but I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are travelling with someone older, or just looking to make life easy.
Prompt, courteous transfer from hotel to airport. We were greeted at the airport dock and our bags were transported (porter service) to the airport terminal as we were escorted to the departure area. Relaxing and trouble-free.
The agent turned up outside our apartment spot on time to take us to the taxi, which left straight away. This meant that we could spend a little more time in Venice than if we had caught public transport, which was nice. However, you pay a premium for this service.
This was worthless. Guide met me at the port, got me on a water taxi, then left before we even got to the airport! Wold have been much cheaper if I got the water taxi myself. Too bad, because, the arrival transfer service was great.
In spite of receiving a fax at our hotel, Ai Due Principi, confirming our pick up at 9am in front of the Hotel Londra Palace, at 9am there was no sign of our boat, so we had to phone the local office (Bucintori Viaggi) who then had to call our boat driver, who was actually waiting for us on a canal nearer our hotel. It seems that communication is not very clear between the company, boat drivers etc. with different information given to that provided for the customer. NOT a premium, seamless service, as the price would suggest! By the time the driver had picked us up it was after 9.20am, which was a significant delay and had we encountered any further problems en route, such as bad weather, it could have resulted in us missing our flight or being denied boarding! According to the manager in our hotel, this is a common problem with this company. Based on the unreliability, we would not book with you again!
Collected from outside our hotel bang on time and a 30 minute trip back to Marco Polo airport. Once docked, we were met by the courier and taken right to out check-in desk. What a wonderful way to end the visit to a wonderful romantic city. Highly recommended and will use again without a doubt.
ABSOLUTELY A MUST...especially if you have a lot of luggage:)) Great service TO and FROM Marco Polo Airport to ANYWHERE in Venice Italy. We will, with no question use this service again!!!!
Boat was beautiful and immaculate. Driver was unbelievably good -- there's nothing quite like the full-throated roar of the engine as he kicks the throttle way up over the open water.
The guide was very, very solicitous, making sure that we made it all the way through some issues at the check-in counter. Overall, they executed this perfectly.
We experienced the best service taking the Private Transfer to the Venice airport! The taxi driver was on time and we were greeted at the airport by a travel assistant who secured a porter to transport our luggage to the terminal. The travel assistant also waited with us until the porter delivered our luggage to us at the airline counter. We will use the private airport service again when we visit Venice in the near future. We were extremely impressed with the level of service provided by Viator during our visit to Spain and Italy.
