What people are saying about Grand Canal

The greeter was right there at baggage claim exit, very nice and helpful, took us directly to the car for 3 minute transfer to the private water taxi. Then the taxi speed very quickly across the lagoon and landed directly to the hotel’s landing, was very much appreciated at 111pm in the evening, highly recommended to spend the extra money on a private water taxi for your Venice arrival.

Service with little care for these customers. Taxi at the baggage exit waiting for us to take us to the boat. Very friendly, spacious car. A very beautiful, clean all-wooden boat. Superb boat trip. It's expensive but the service is tailor-made, and everything is perfectly organized

Good driver-but is expensive when you have paid DKK 848, when you have only driven one way, but have paid to drive both ways. Getyourguide could only find one way in their system

Punctuality, serious service, the correspondent on site was easily contacted, with a good listening ear.

“Magic” private transfer under the sun and the heat. Ascent of the Grand Canal to the Hotel Top
