Full description
Boating over the lagoon from Marco Polo International Airport upon your arrival in Venice is easily the most exclusive and romantic airport transfer in the world. This is an exclusive shared water taxi service from Venice Marco Polo Airport to central Venice hotels, and back. Hop into a water taxi straight after you pick up your luggage and get whisked across the lagoon to your hotel. Not only is this the most romantic way to travel, but it’s also the most direct route to the city. For some hotels located along the Grand Canal, or hotels such as Hilton Stucky and San Clemente, the water taxi stops directly at the hotel. For less-accessible destinations on the inner canals, you will be dropped off within easy walking distance. If your hotel is JW Marriott - Isola delle Rose, you will be dropped off in San Marco nearby the Marriott hotel shuttle boat

This was a great experience! Very quick, easy to get to, and a comfortable tailored transit. Although it cost a bit more than a standard bus-boat, this was a better and valued experience. The boat operator also showed me around the city for a mini tour as he saw I was not a local!

On arrival really easy to find desk 71, very nice lady on reception , 15 min wait for all guests to arrive , then a 10 min walk to the taxi dock, We boarded to taxi , friendly driver , we were the last drop off and he turned on the blue interior lights for us, it was Beautiful cruising across the canal in a illuminated speed boat, dropped us a 10 min walk from our hotel , would definitely use again

This was a fabulous experience, quick and simple to book, directions off where to get the water taxis very easy. More expensive way off travelling to Venice than getting the bus but not every day you there. Staff very courteous and polite and drop off right on our hotel door step. On time for pick up back to airport. Highly recommend
