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 .

Best trip in Venice, if not the Gondola ride. I was looking for Lagoon tour, but then I found this hop on and hop off. And I must say it is the best way you can visit the Laguna Islands. The boats are scheduled every hour from every Island and you can hop on any boat anytime you want, also it is always on time. This is the best option you can get in this amount for visiting lagoon tours.

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

Overall amazing experience. Perhaps providing a map online with all the stops clearly listed would be helpful.

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