All in all we was very happy with the service. friendly & helpful taxi driver, good value & i would highly reccomend :) a bit of confusion re the departure point? little confusing as the name on the confirmation voucher doesn't correspond with what you are looking for, it could be sign posted a little better! but the fact theres no time slot the pressure was taken away....

Hassle free booking . The information desk is just outside arrivals and the whole process was easy! I shared a water taxi with another 2 people and just needed to wait 20 minutes and then we are off to Venice. I was dropped off at my hotel. I really enjoyed the ride from airport to the city!

The shared water taxi was good and an atmospheric start to our holiday. Unfortunately it was raining so less worthwhile but not their fault. The ticket office was not obviously located so we headed to the pier but then had to walk all the way back to the terminal just to walk back to the pier again which isn’t really ideal.
