Our train came after the station office closed but we were provided with a number to call. They arranged for a boat which was there before we got to the dock! Excellent service and much fun to arrive in the late evening and walk to our hotel in the deepening dusk. Be sure and confirm your arrival!

This was quite nice, but we were confused how we actually got one. You have to go to the little booking place left while exciting the train station. They order you one. You then wait for your transfer. It's a wonderful quick way getting around and we defiantly recommend it!

Loved our personal water taxi to our hotel! This was one of my favorite time in Venice. Leaving Venice we enjoyed our water taxi back to Santa Lucia. Glad to have made these connections with Viator.

Perfect transfer to the hotel! Very friendly staff and well organized welcome at the station. Much more convenient, compared to the public transportation at the arrival at the first day.

The boat picked us up at the specified time in front of the train station. The office is very easy to find as it is right next to the train station as soon as you walk outside. The driver left us within walking distance of our hotel. Very nice start to our Venice trip!
