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.

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.

Transfer arrived on time and took us to our hotel without a hitch. It was easy to locate upon arrival and the convenience saved a lot of unnecessary hassle.

Fantastic service, reconfirmed the day before as our cruise ship was now arriving at San Basilio terminal and not the main Marittima terminal, staff were extremely helpful and ensured our taxi met us at San Basilio saving us a massive trek across the cruise terminal, they also were able to drop us directly at our hotel at San Clemente Palace, which is on an island, when I had originally assumed I would be dropped at San Marco where the hotels shuttle boat runs from, overall great service and good value for money.

This was as easy as it gets, in terms of a transfer. While more expensive than a vaporetto, it was half of what a private water taxi would have run. We had set it up ahead of time the person in the office guided us to the meeting point for the other parties going in the same water taxi. It was absolute bedlam at the cruise port with several ships disembarking at the same time, but we didn't have to wait in line, and the process went smoothly. There were dozens of water taxis all jockeying about in the water, a bit terrifying, but the drivers seemed to have everything under control. Our driver let us off at a dock right in front of our hotel - excellent experience and we got a great incoming view of Venice.
