We found the check in location quickly from our cruise ship. We had to wait about 20 minutes for our water taxi to arrive. We were the only two in our water taxi and it was such a fun way to arrive into venice! We took lots of pictures of the ride. We got dropped off at St. Mark's square and had a short walk to our hotel. I would highly recommend this water taxi transfer from the cruise port!

A good transfer. We found the office quite easily at the cruise port in Venice but then had to wait quite a while about 30mins for our travel guide to arrive. After that we had a comfortable ride in a water taxi almost right to the Rialto Hotel, only had to take our bags over one bridge and then a few metres to the hotel. Pretty good service, would use it again.

A great ride on a private water taxi from the cruise ship port to San Marcos square. A young lady from their booth help move our luggage from the dock through a very crowded San Marcos square to our hotel. Many Many thanks to her.

I could recommend getting this transfer to anyone leaving the cruise ship. It made the trip to the hotel fun and enjoyable, and it gave you the true feeling of Venice. My first view of the Rialto Bridge and a gondola was from the water taxi. We were dropped off right at our hotel which was located on the Grand Canal. We were on the water taxi with one other couple.

I really can't rate this because we couldn't use it. We were unable to use this transfer because our ship docked outside the main cruise dock area and we did not have phone service in Italy to contact anyone about options.

When going to the boat for our transfer, our guide was a slender long haired brunette,, don't know her name but she walked so fast it was impossible for people to keep up! She NEVER slowed down even when my mother and I were way behind! She never took into consideration that we are all pushing luggage over pebbled walkways, up and down on curbs and sidewalks! I realized when she had the driver drop her off at a non passenger stop, it was all about her. She never said goodbye to anyone just got off the boat. Other guests had to tell her that she lost people by walking so fast! Totally unprofessional and rude not to keep track of her passengers

I had already commented previously.Thevaparetto was late causing us much stress and missed the first part of our tour.

It was not as easy to find the correct line as I had anticipated. I kept looking for something that said Viator. I had to wait on the Alilaguna line right past the port exit to be told to go to a different Alilaguna line further from the port exit. Then I waited on another line to be told to wait on the line for shared water taxis. He accepted the Viator voucher quickly and then he had to wait to put a compatible taxi group together. That took about 15 more minutes. Then everything went smoothly.He even drew a little map of how to get to my hotel from the taxi stop. The price didn't seem too much lower than anyone else but they had to pay extra for luggage. If I had a clearer description of which line to join it would have been much better. There is a lot of confusion when so many disembark at the same time

This worked out very well as we were in the water taxi within 30 minutes of disembarking. The driver brought us to the hotel next to where we were staying closest he could legally park his boat. All went very well, polite and professional. I would use this service again if visiting Venice.

Shared the boat with three other couples. We were the first to be dropped off.
