What You Can Expect

Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Venice Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Choose from two different options with this one-water private taxi service from Venice’s Marco Polo Airport to you hotel. With meet and greet service, a representative will greet you at the airport arrival terminal and escort you to the pier, where you’ll board a private motorboat. With the full-service option, a representative will stay with you from the arrival terminal all the way to the door of your hotel. 

Once you hop aboard your comfortable motorboat, relax and enjoy the spectacular ride. As not all Venice hotels have a private water taxi stop, the driver will let you off at the closest available stop. 
Motorboats can accommodate up to six people and six pieces of luggage. Transfer service is available 24 hour a day, 7 days a week. Please provide flight and hotel details when making your booking. You’ll receive immediate confirmation and a voucher to present to the transfer representative. Please call the number on your voucher between 24 and 48 hours prior to your arrival to confirm your transfer.
Price is per person, based on six adults per motorboat.
Please note: Guests staying at Venice’s Hotel Marriott (Isola delle Rose) will need to pay a surcharge of €20 at the time of service due to the hotel’s more distant location. This transfer service is not available to Mestre hotels.

Expensive but the boat sent us right in front of our hotel. It would be worth the money if you have a group of people.

Our only concern was that we were not sent any confirmation of our booked return journey as advised by the representative on our outward journey.The hotel attempted to contact the Viator office helpline on the number given on our original booking but without success.However the taxi arrived 20 minutes early than the original scheduled time given so ended up ok,but would have had a better nights sleep if a confirmation text or call had been sent.
Return journey was fast,efficient and good fun,was met at the quay by Viator rep who then drove us to departures to save walking.Directed us to the right airline checkin .Overall a first class service through out would definatley use again.

The only way to arrive or depart from Venice. Cruising the canals as we headed to the Venice Railway Station was exceptional as we again experienced the magic of the canals that are Venice. Worth every cent

It was wonderful to be me at the airport, like a VIP! It made us so excited to be taken in private water taxi and enjoy the approach into Venice on our own, we felt so special! Our guide even found our hotel with us, which was wonderful in a new place, and especially Venice as it is quite hard to find you're way around with only small narrow streets. Highly recommended.

Met us promptly at the airport and expeditiously transported us to our rather obscure hotel.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Excellent service. On time and right to the door. Getting from the baggage carousel to the taxi without that assistance could have been tricky after a 24 hours travelling. Thoroughly recommended. ☆☆☆☆☆

The gentlemen that met us at the airport was very nice. The boat taxi driver was not very friendly but got us there safe.

What a grand way to enter Venice! We crossed the water from the airport with the lights of Venice ahead and a full moon overhead. Our boat went down the Grand Canal and then motored through a side canal right to our hotel. Even better, we had arranged for the private arrival transfer so a guide had met us at the airport arrival area, helped us with our luggage, and got us to the door of our hotel. This was a splurge for us but definitely worth the money. Instead of struggling with luggage and worrying about how to find our hotel, we had an easy arrival and a magical trip from the mainland airport to one of the world's loveliest cities.
