Delayed transfer.
, Sep 2019
We were on time. Poor signage where we we in line then told to transfer to another line and had to wait for them to open. Then we waited and waited for the boat. When it arrived we could not board until a late third party would finally get there for over a half hour. Poor communication. It was over an hour from when we got off the ship to when we could get onto the taxi. They did deliver us to our hotel though so thank goodness for that.
Venice arrival transfer

The gentleman who rode the boat was wonderful. He helped my elderly mom get off and on the boat. He was very pleasant.
Waited too long for sharing
, Jul 2019
We prepaid this shared transfer and hoping to take the water taxi faster than the people who didn’t booked in advance. No, we still need to wait for an hour. It was so crowded and hot at the cruise port. So many ships were disembarked at the same time. People were waiting in long lines to buy their tickets. Thank God I found one window for the “Prepaid” tickets only. Check in was easy, but waiting to get on the boat with all 10 people was not so good. I would like to pay more to have a private transfer if my group is four or more people.
On time, port to hotel
, Jul 2019
We checked at the information desk at the port and were directed to the far end. There was a line and things seemed a bit disorganized, but when our water taxi arrived it was full with passengers and luggage. We were the last off and the boat driver very courteous.

Our taxi was even early! Friendly, prompt, boat very nice. I would definitely recommend them. FThis is flller for minimum length requirement for review.
Always great
, Jun 2019
Transfers from port to hotel and hotel to airport were great. Plus the tour booked was great. This was the second time around both booked with Viator
Terrible - don't book
, Jun 2019
Terrible experience - Complete lack of information about what to do and where to go when we disembarked. When we found the ticket office (dragging our luggage around) he was vague and we waited for 2 hours with about 8 others in the cold blowing rain. When we finally were given some directions to the shared transfer boat, we were jammed in like sardines in a can with luggage balancing precariously, the boat driver hanging on so bags didn't topple into the canal.
Waiting time was over an hour
, May 2019
Not very helpful on the desk, just pointed you to sit and wait. Eventually someone came and took us to the water taxi. To then be told there were too many of us, so we had to wait another 15-20 minutes for another taxi. Unorganized and unhelpful. Booked a private one to return as told many time the return comes late and you can miss your flight
We found the check in location quickly...
, Sep 2018
We found the check in location quickly from our cruise ship. We had to wait about 20 minutes for our water taxi to arrive. We were the only two in our water taxi and it was such a fun way to arrive into venice! We took lots of pictures of the ride. We got dropped off at St. Mark's square and had a short walk to our hotel. I would highly recommend this water taxi transfer from the cruise port!
A good transfer. We found the office...

A good transfer. We found the office quite easily at the cruise port in Venice but then had to wait quite a while about 30mins for our travel guide to arrive. After that we had a comfortable ride in a water taxi almost right to the Rialto Hotel, only had to take our bags over one bridge and then a few metres to the hotel. Pretty good service, would use it again.
