Port Transfer

The transfer was very organised & made it a excellent experience. They met us at the dock & took us to the hotel. Very good staff.
Don't Waste your time with this Vendor

I don't normally write reviews, but this experience was so bad I felt I needed to let others know. Just finished up a 12 day cruise in Venice, and wanted a private taxi to take us directly to our Hotel in Venice which had waterway access. Had to wait an hour for the taxi and was dropped of with a 10 min walk to the Hotel with many large size bags. Yes, I was one of those families you see trying to cross the crowded bridges with large bags, a situation I was trying to avoid. Friends traveling with us got a taxi at the taxi stand and got picked up in 20 mins, and dropped off at the hotel, and only paid 80E. I had purchased 8 excursions ($3700) with Viator and had an outstanding service with all the other vendors, so may expectations I guess were to high.
Details sadly lacking. . .

When reservation is made, all you know is what time ship is supposed to dock, not what time you might be able to leave the ship and get your luggage. Tried to call the Viaggi agency multiple times to let them know what time we would be able to disembark - no answer and no message machine, it just rings. When we disembarked, no one there to meet us. Called agency again and woman asked if we could see the Alilaguna ticket booth which we were standing right next to. Waited in line and then was told we had to go to a different cruise ship terminal than the one our ship arrived at. Lugged everything to other terminal, waited in line again, was told to get in another line. . .finally talked to someone who got snarky with us saying they'd been waiting for us for two hours. Really? Where??? Told us to stand aside and wait. About 45 minutes later, she comes over and gives us a tag with a boat number on it and tells us to go to the end of the pier and wait for boat number to be called. Heavy rain in Venice that day. . .little cover. Finally got our boat called and boat operator was very kind - helped with our luggage and helped us aboard in two-foot swells. We used Viaggi agency for other tours including gondola ride which was billed as private but wasn't. Their staff was rude and impatient. I would not use them again or recommend anyone to use their services.
A lifesaver!

Arrived in Venice to 30 mph winds and 6 foot seas on the Giudecca Canal. First time in Venice, had no idea what was where. But the tour representative led us to a water taxi which got us to our hotel. Much better than it could have been. Not cheap, but WORTH IT!

We exited the cruise ship to see our name on a card and met our person who called the water taxi and then walked us to the hotel desk. This was a great start to our Venice trip. I highly recommend this transfer

The Arrival transfer from our Cruise Ship to the Hotel was pleasant and uneventful - we were greeted punctually at the entrance of the Cruise Port and accompanied by our friendly, local Viator representative to our Water-taxi to our Venice, canal Hotel. Our Water-Taxi driver was helpful with our baggage party of 4 and very helpful assisting us into and out of the Taxi. I would highly recommend using this service when staying in the center of Venice. Having a dock at your hotel is a life-saver - carrying baggage up/down stairs over bridges is not an easy task. I highly recommend using this service, especially when you are coming off, or starting your cruise from Venice.

FIVE STAR SERVICE - The price might seem expensive but it was totally worth it to me, a 73 yr. old woman, traveling with another 70 year old woman. We arrived in Venice by cruise ship. The thought of moving our suitcases, backpacks, and aging bodies from the cruise ship to our hotel using a larger water taxi service and then lugging everything over bridges and through the crowded streets of Venice was not something we looked forward to doing. This service sounded perfect for us - and it was. We collected our luggage at the port terminal and as soon as we stepped outside the terminal exit door, we saw our escort holding a sign with our names on it. She helped us with our luggage and walked us a short distance to the private water taxi pick-up location. Although there were dozens of boats lined up ours moved quickly into position to pick us up. Our bags/carryons were moved aboard by the escort and driver and we were on our way. The water taxi was a classic woody on which we could sit insider or outside the enclosed cabin. About 15 minutes later we docked at our hotel's private dock and walked about 10 feet to enter the building. The escort transferred our belonging to a hotel porter and said goodbye. The entire land/water transfer was flawless there was not one aspect of the service that could have been improved upon. It was PERFECTLY EXECUTED.

Couldn't find our water taxi. No one was there to greet us as represented. No one with sign with our names on it. Had to go to various information booths to find out where to go. Although we paid for private water taxi, they had us down as sharing one. Very disorganized and disappointing.Eventually we made it to our destination but far from smooth, anxiety-free experience.

Best experience it's a little daunting when you first arrive in Venice off a cruise ship, a young lady was there to greet us and waited with us until the taxi arrived. This was not special because we were first timers this incredible company does it for all guests, they see you safely onto the taxi and then quickly leave didn't even get a chance to tip and say thank you. Would highly recommend
