Easy to find. Didn't realise the majority of the trip would be by car. Driver was very helpful. We picked up the water taxi near the train station but could not see any of the canals and buildings as the boat was closed over and the windows did not open. Overall the transfer was very efficient but could have been a better experience buly giving the first views of Venice (even at night).

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!
