    Flying into a new country with a different language, this is a must! These guys were waiting for us right out of customs and took us on a private boat right to our hotel. Make sure you get a hotel in Venice that has water portage. You do not want to be dragging your luggage through the streets of Venice to get to your hotel.

    We booked a private transfer. Our hotel called to confirm the transfer and were told it was a group transfer and we would have to make our own way to the collection point. We called directly and were told the same thing. When we clearly would not accept this they provided the service we had actually paid for.
    The transfer, when we got it, was smooth and the guide who met us was on time and helpful.

    This service was perfect and hassle free. The day before our pickup, we received a reminder message at our hotel confirming our pickup time. Sure enough, right on schedule, we were picked up at the time we had booked. I am an anxious person when I have to get from one place to another, especially when traveling with family, luggage, etc. This service was perfect and allowed me to relax, enjoy the ride to the cruise terminal and get ready for our cruise.

    This was way overpriced. My sister got her own taxi directly from her hotel and paid a fraction. Do no pre-book.

    despite being told that the pick up time i had selected was not available, I accepted the pick up time of 11.00am instead of noon. I was picked up from my hotel and taken to the cruise port with no rush. It was a scenic and relaxed trip. I was met at the cruise port by a most delightful young lady called Carlotta, (Charlotte) in English, who I believe was a part of the Viator experience, I cannot speak highly enough about her, She was both delightful and helpful. She made totally sure that I was taken care of throughout the check in process and she answered any questions I had. She was a STAR.

    Expensive but on time and quick enough. Only criticisms I have is how far we had to walk after we got off the water taxi to the cruise departure port last time we had a shuttle transfer and once we got to the berth we were pointed to the correct entrance and then the guide left last time the guide took us into the building and showed us the correct counter to go to.

    Was very dissatisfied. Booked a private departure transfer expecting to have a porter help with luggage 4 adults, 2 small children, 6 suitcases. Unfortunately, a very sweet young girl showed up to guide us to the transportation. We could have done that ourselves since we came that way with a porter. We had to haul everything and everybody to the boat. While the young lady was trying to help, it was a horrible experience. We did not get what we were promised. Again not the fault of the co. The young lady represented but victor.

    While we called to delay our departure to a later time in the day, our water taxi driver was very professional and prompt in arriving at the later time.
