We were met at the cruise port. The gal was very friendly and helped us with our bags as we took them across St Mark's square to our hotel. Thank God she was there to help us- we had no idea where we were going and it had been flooding in the square when we were there!! We will definitely do this the next time we go to Venice. Totally worth the extra money!! First class service and it was completely private as we were the only passengers aboard the transfer boat.

Our hostess was waiting right outside the terminal with sign with my name. She and our driver were courteous and efficient. Having the private boat take us right to our hotel was a special way to start are visit to Venice. The walk from the ship to the taxi station is a little way and if you have large suitcases it may be a problem. There are luggage carts, but I am not sure how to access them.

I would recommend this excellent service to anyone who is arriving in Venice for the first time. It is very hard to find your own way around Venice at first as it is a real maze of lane ways, streets and campos.

Although the water taxis took a while to arrive, the ride to the hotel was OK.

Brilliant service. Lovely lady met us at port and escorted us to our taxi. Really glad I organised this in advance as cruise ship had arrived and lots of people trying to get a taxi arranged on the day ! The trip to our hotel was magical.

I am so glad we arranged this transfer. We were met at the port by a lovely lady who was a joy!! This is the way to go when you need a hassle-free disembarkation and hotel transfer! Well worth the cost!
