We disembarked our cruise in Venice an hour earlier than we had informed Viator for private transfer to hotel and were thrilled to see our names on a board ready to go to pier for transfer. It was all very professional and fast. They were really friendly and helpful. Would def recommend and use again.

The guide was waiting for us on time just outside the cruise terminal and we had a brilliant boat transfer to our hotel and she escorted us right to the reception desk.

The company representative was waiting when we disembarked the boat, the water taxi arrived 10 minutes later, the driver helped four of us to load ourselves and all our luggage, and then took us to our door! Perfetto! Money well spent!

The service could not have been better. We were greeted by a representative at the dock, who arranged for our luggage to be taken to the water taxi. The taxi was there within minutes, and we and our luggage were quickly taken to our hotel.. If the service is more expensive than doing it on your own, it is well worth it.

We were met by an english speaking lady holding a sign with our name (nice). She guided us to walk 10 minutes with our own luggage from the cruise ship terminal to the water taxi docks (not too difficult). We skipped the line to board a water taxi of our own (nice) which delivered us to the dock of our hotel as described. Glad we planned/booked this from home, wouldn"t want to do it last minute. Pay the little extra for this service, I recommend it.

We were greeted at the cruise port and escorted to the water-taxi dock where a taxi was waiting to take us to our hotel. We had a group of 6 so this made the transfer quick and easy with no surprises.

These guys were great!! We arrived 45 minutes late, tried to send an email... but if you're going to be late, CALL THEM. They had a wonderful young lady, named Gloria, waiting for the six of us at our cruise ship, a boat waiting at the dock and we held everybody up. She rearranged her schedule, got our luggage to a storage facility at the cruise port, and got us on our water taxi. She smiled and was gracious and helpful every minute. The water taxi got us across Venice, and up one of the local canals behind St Marks Square to the closest possible stop to our hotel. Gloria walked us to the door and got us settled in. Without her, we could still be wandering the back alleys of Venice! This trip was awesome and worth every bit of our investment!

This was also an excellent experience. Our guide was waiting for us in the terminal and took us to the boat. She was able to pull up to a hotel dock, not our hotel, and asked if we could disembark and walk through their tiny lobby to the street. The hotel agreed and we were at the hotel in less than 5 minutes.

You provided great service and it was worth the cost. Many thanks.

This was very expensive compared to public transportation. We had reservations at a hotel by St. Mark's square which has waterway access, Because of my husband's COPD this was much easier then draging luggage up and down steps and bridges to try and find the hotel. We were on a ship for 18 days and had a total of 8 pieces of luggage between the 3 of us. This was so easy other then the fairly long walk to the water taxi. I highly recommend this if you or any one with you has any kind of physical handicap. They handled all the luggage and stop right at the hotel.

We were met at the port and we were taken to our Hotel in Venice at St Mark's Sq. The representative from Viator made sure that we did not have to carry any luggage and arranged for a porter. From port to hotel. Could not have asked for anything better.

WOW! We were collected from the cruise port by a lovely English speaking lady who took us from the disembarking point to our water-taxi; and what a taxi. Gleaming timber, cute driver, took us to the back door of our palace, and that isn't an exageration, we stayed in a palace hotel in the Royal Suite OMG!

Transfers were excellent and would definitely book via Viator again.

Right on time -- easy, efficient, and more affordable than anything else we saw! Will use Viator for all of my travel transfers now! Our host was great -- she brought us right to the hotel and provided some history of Venice along the way.

The transfer was trouble-free and very convenient from the cruise port to the hotel. I would make the same arrangement on my next visit to Venice.

We were met at the scheduled time after our cruise. The hostess took us to the dock where we boarded our water taxi, which took us directly to our hotel. Very easy transfer.

This was quite expensive but well worth it. Watching all the water taxi's come into port was good fun. We had our taxi to ourselves and it took about 20 minutes to get to our hotel. Best way to enter Venice if you can afford it.
