Your service was excellent. Thanks

Excellent. Disembarked from our ship and walked to the office at the end of the pier and presented our voucher to the man behind the counter. He already had our information on file and 30 minutes later we were pulling up to our hotel on the Grand Canal. We were very, very satisfied with the service provided by Viator. I would highly recommend this company to anyone visiting or leaving Venice.

Great way to get from the cruise terminal to the hotel, only had to wait 15 mins for other couples to make the group. It was straight to the hotel within 20 mins and a cruise down the Grand Canal. Excellent!

We departed our cruise ship at 8am with our luggage and easily found the transfer point. A quick trip through the canal and we were dropped off 200 meters from our hotel which was an easy find and no hassle. This transfer meant we didn't have to wait for the transfers arranged by the cruise ship and we could take our luggage with us and check in to our hotel and make the most of our day.
