    Excellent service! Our train was delayed but there were no issues. There was a person waiting at the train station with my name on a card. She took us to the dock where our private taxi was waiting. The boat was clean and well maintained. The driver was super helpful with the bags. A most satisfactory way to arrive in Venice!

    This was definitely worth doing. We were met at the train station by representative holding our name who took us directly over to our water taxi. The water taxi took us straight to our hotel. As first timers in Venice it took all the worry about getting to our hotel for the first time. Thanks!

    Transfer was amazing, as the were waiting right at the train platform to pick us up in a classic Venetian boat. Ride out to the Lido was quick and we treated to a waterview of many of the sites.

    Don’t book this in advance. We booked this in advance not knowing our way around Venice. Leaving the train station to get to our hotel on the Grand Canal. Catch a water taxi once you arrive and pay a fraction of the price.

    We were met by 2 representatives at the station platform. They escorted us to the water taxi pick up. They were very attentive. They made sure the taxi driver knew where we were going. Lovely scenery on route to hotel.

    Great Service! We were meet promptly at the Train Station by an agent who got us on to a water taxi, arranged all the luggage handling and a few minutes later we were racing down the canal to our hotel. A great stress free arrival !

    This is very costly but the service is excellent. Someone was waiting for us literally within a minute of us exiting the train. He had our name on a placard. He escorted us to the waiting taxi and a few minutes later we were at our hotel. As we had a lot of luggage and were exhausted, this was well worth the investment for us.

    This met our expectations , it is always great to have someone meet you at a new place when you arrive and make sure that you get to our hotel safely and without any hassle. They take care of everything including the meet and greet , the porter service and arranging the water taxi. One thing the provider can improve will be to have someone accompany you all the way to the hotel, You are on your own once you are in the taxi, not a big deal as the driver takes you to your destination. But a finer touch will be for someone to accompany you.

    Our person was not there when we arrived and when we went to the recommended office, they had to call around to find her. Then we had to wait an additional 30 minutes for our taxi to arrive. We got to our destination safely but getting together with our guide was frustrating, especially in 90 degree heat with three children.

    I couldn't have asked for a smoother arrival to Venice. There was a representative waiting for us at the car rental return who led us all the way to the boat to take us to our hotel. Venice is a bit of a crazy place upon arrival, specifically if you don't know your way around, and pre-booking this make it go as smooth as possible. Would definitely recommend!

    We were met as we left our train platform by a young lady with a sign who then took us to the taxi boat. The boat ride through the canals of Venice to out Hotel was a great way to start our holiday. No carrying of cases through the tiny hot streets of Venice!

    Best value. This gives one a chance to chat and enquire with the escort while waiting for the boat to dock. Worth the price of the ticket. The cost? Outrageous! But worth it for bragging rights and a chance to see this glittering Jewel in all her splendour. It will be your last chance to privately savour this treasure before you are flung into the hordes of fellow tourists Enjoy it....
