This worked well however be prepared for what seems like a late notification regarding the time and pick up quay. On arrival into Venice I asked about this and was told the hotel would know closer to the time. We were due for transfer very early on a Sunday morning and by Saturday late afternoon we still had not been informed. Concerned, having spoken to the hotel reception I emailed the local provider and telephoned GYG and within 45 mins had confirmation. Taxi arrived on time but there is some messing around collecting fellow passengers; however we arrived into Marco Polo airport within 40 minutes. Be sure to be at the pick up point 15 minutes before your time as the taxi will not wait if you are late as happened on our transfer.

First let me state that the only reason we are giving this a 4 is really not in the control of the Water Taxi as it was due to another parties flight was delayed which delayed us all and we missed our Gondola Ride even though we gave ourselves more than 2 hours to get from Airport to Hotel.

Perfect way to start or end your trip. We used the transfer both ways. They Pick you up from the airport and drop you as close to your hotel as possible. On the return they pick you up from where they originally dropped you off. You get a fantastic view of Venice, whilst traveling in style!
