Easy, fast and a good way to start your trip

Arrived at the Water Taxi location, the attendant was very helpful, loaded our luggage on the boat and took us right to our dock. There was a short walk to our hotel from there. Could not have been easier. Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone traveling to Venice. I also own a Travel Agency and would recommend this service to my clients. Thank you so much.

Easy safe trip to the airport.

Never having been in Venice, and after reading travel books, I was concerned about getting to the airport from the cruise terminal on time. Our driver, Massimo, arrived promptly, found us easily, and it was less than a half hour drive. Would definitely book other trips thru this company in the future.

Thrilling and exhilarating way to arrive in Venice, never to be forgotten!

The water taxi rank is about a 5 minute walk from the airport arrivals area. A taxi was waiting for me and we set off immediately, taking me through the boat channel which gave magnificent views of Venice as we approached. We then traversed the north side of the island, getting some glimpses into canals and ended up right beside my cruise ship. The real bonus was that my suitcase was taken off the taxi straight onto the ship, so I didn't have any handling to do. Well worth the price for convenience and experience.

Incredible amount of touring in a short amount of time.

We did not have much time but wanted to cover a lot of area. Adriana was our guide for the entire weekend and she was incredibly knowledgable and went at the pace we set. Booking a private tour aloud us to choose specific times that suited us and we weren't lost in a group of people. Adriana was considerate to the three generations present in our group and answered all of our questions and gave plenty of options on where to go to eat and visit after our time with her had ended. Our experience with Adriana has prompted us to seek future travel specifically to Venice and we will be sure to request Adrianna. This tour was worth every penny.
