Excellent service . When our train arrived a very nice lady ,Eleonora , was waiting for us at the train platform and quickly guided us outside to meet our private boat . A few minutes later our boat arrived and we’re on our way through the Grand Canal at a nice pace . She offered to take some photos of us on the boat and gave us some good info about the area . Once docked , just after the Rialto Bridge , she helped with my wife’s luggage and escorted us straight to our hotel’s front desk . All in all a great way to start our Venice adventure .

Easy to find the agency, the taxi driver worried about waiting for us and locating us where we were, of course helping us with our bags to get on the boat. Of course, give us directions on how to get to the hotel.

very easy and so much cheaper then a private water taxi , plus I had the taxi to myself so it was like a private one anyways... 25€ compared to 200€ I would definitely recommend it

It was exactly as promised! Arriving at the train station, we promptly found the office! In ten minutes the taxi arrived and dropped us off near the hotel where we stayed!

Taxi was waiting and pleasant ride. Only 1 other person on the boat with us. Good value.
