Traveler Tips

Bear in mind there is a 5-10 minute walk to the boat taxi point which you do as a group without staff (but is well signed).
With luggage and the heat, it can be a bit much.

Venetian captain saves the day!
Angie_S, Sep 2022
We arrived late to Venice and had been locked out of our Viator account and could not locate our tour operator. After 16 hours of traveling we headed for the water taxis to see if we could find our tour operator. With the limited information we had. We found a very nice captain who tried to assist us in getting connected to our boat operator. After a long chat on the phone he was able to transfer our reservation to his boat and took us to our hotel with no additional charges. We thought the beginning of our trip was going to be a disaster but instead we were supported by this wonderful Venetian captain! We unfortunately did not get his contact information.
Water Tax transfer from Marco Polo airport Venice to Venice
Michael_L, Aug 2022
Once taxi arrived was a nice quick trip and the water taxi dropped us off directly at the hotels jetty. Used the same service to get back to the airport from the hotel, again directly from the front of the hotel. Slight wait at the airport till the water taxi got back and a slight walk to from arrivals to the taxi but nothing too bad. Good value for money and get to see more of Venice from the water taxi.

Great way to see Venice for the first time - exciting experience for everyone - not too long to wait

Easy transportation from airport
Donna_J, May 2022
This was our 1st trip to Venice and this made it so easy to transfer between the airport and stop of the hotel. We got to see some sights along the way and the boat was not very crowded - only about 8 of us on board.
The perfect way to arrive...
Deborah_C, Apr 2022
The perfect way to arrive in beautiful Venice to see the sights ftom a boat -very efficientl and easy to book Friendly and helpful staff
Great way to get into Venice
Matifadza_G, Nov 2022
We were directed where to get out water taxi from the airport. This was pretty straight forward. It was quite fast to transfer which was nice. It’s open so can be cold in the winter so wrap up warm. Also it takes you an ‘station’ close to your hotel not directly to the hotel. Other than that it was a good transfer and value for money.
Ahhh, Entering Venice at Golden Time
Kimberly_T, Nov 2022
This was a great way to get to the city of Venice from the airport. The smell of the sea and fresh breeze on our faces as we sped across the water to enter beautiful Venice was wonderful. The trip was even more special since we travelled at golden time with the sunlight spilling across the blue and green water and the colorful old city. We brought 3 large suitcases which our driver helpfully put on and off the boat for us. The price for the experience after a very long plane ride was worth it!
Arriving at Venice in style
Alan_S, Nov 2022
Approaching Venice by water and the Grand Canal was amazing. Visiting Venice for a holiday means deciding how to reach the city from the airport on the mainland and this is probably the easiest and most memorable option, easily organised through Viator.
Great way to experience Venice for the first time
Tyler_H, Nov 2022
It was a little pricey but is a great way to experience Venice for the first time if arriving by plane
Great way to get to...
Sophie_C, Nov 2022
Great way to get to Venice - highly recommend - no issues - I have. I thing more to say but I have to get to 100 characters to be able to post this review!
A highlight.
Paul_B, Oct 2022
The only way to travel to Venice! Well organised and the perfect way to begin a stay in Venice. Perfect!
Welcome to Venice
Victoria_L, Oct 2022
Definitely a way to enter Venice! Be prepared to wait for a bit before departure (was about 30 min for us). This is a small group transfer, and you must wait for everyone to gather. Got dropped off right near our hotel which was very convenient.

It was one of the most wonderful parts of our trip. I would do it again in a minute I will recommend it. Fantastic
Donna_H, Oct 2022
We were the last ones dropped off at our hotel dock so we got a tour of all of Venice in a small boat. It was one of the most wonderful parts of our trip. I would do it again in a minute I will recommend it to all my friends

Great way to arrive in Venice - quick tip!
Joey_S, Oct 2022
Wonderful transfer for our first time to Venice. Make sure you stop at 71 in arrival hall before proceeding to water bus station. Arrival hall is just past the baggage claim. If you made it to the long hallway counting your time to the water bus station you have gone too far.
Driver was ace
Samantha_G, Oct 2022
Great job. Driver was ace , helped with luggage and where to get off, great views going into Venice.
Good choice
Lorraine_L, Oct 2022
The office at VCE was very organized. We were seated on the boat in order of destination and it was very efficient. A wonderful way to start our time in Venice.
Suzanne_D, Oct 2022
Beautiful day!! What at experience arriving to Venice by boat. Would do again and again!! Just remember to stop by #71 before going to the docks. Lesson learned but I was able to lead other couples to the dock!!
Only way to enter Venice!
Catherine_S, Oct 2022
The water taxi ride from the airport into Venice is excellent. It’s truly the only way to enter the city. We shared a water taxi with several other couples and had a lovely time with amazing views!
