From the message board of “Cruise Critics”:
The best find we had in Venice was our water taxi service. We used Luigi from Venice Guide & Boat. He picked us up at the airport for 80 Euros. We were four people with 4 suitcases and 4 carry-ons. It was great. No line for taxis. No negotiating. On their website they offered a special discount when you book multiple services with them so we arranged for them to pick us up from the hotel and take us to the ship. A friend had also suggested that we do a tour of Venice by water so we hired Luigi for that as well. He was incredibly well informed and shared lots of history and local flavor about Venice with us. We asked him to take us to a glass factory on Murano that wasn’t a tourist trap. It was a great experience. We loved watching the glass blowers in action.

I have recently returned from my trip to Venice and arranged my airport transfer with yourselves. I would just like to compliment you on an excellent, efficient and value for money service.
Apologies for the delay as I meant to e-mail you upon my return to say “Thank You”.
Everything was perfect and Luigi was professional, prompt and just a genuinely lovely guy … our cruise was 3 hrs late arriving back in Venice which put us under pressure to make our flight … Luigi was there to meet us and ensured that we made the Airport in the least possible amount of time … We were so very glad that we had booked with Venice Guide & Boat. It is just an excellent service – serviced by excellent people. I have recommended your Company to some many people and to so many of my colleagues in the Industry – I wish you every success … again my friend I thank you.
I can’t thank you enough for sharing your Venice with us. The entire Weiss party of 6 agree Cinzia and Luigi were the highlight of our trip, you made a very grand end to a very good trip. We’ll never forget my 50th Birthday celebration in Venice.
I’ve told everyone who will listen what a fabulous team you make and hope I’ll be able to send business to you.

Many thanks for the arrangements that worked wonderfully! The transportation from the hotel to the airport worked very well. Thanks again and I’ll recommend your services to my friends that plan future trips. Best Wishes,

We just arrived home in NY and are looking at all of our pictures and thinking about what an amazing trip to Italy we had. Thank you so much for the special tours and for taking the time to show us around Venice, it was a great day (especially the weather was accomodating) and we really enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to our next trip to Venice. Prego, john!

Having arrived back from our Venice holiday, I just wanted to write on behalf of Maureen and I to say thank you again for the two tours which you gave us.
We both enjoyed them very much and really appreciated the advantages of a personal tour. Our compliments to you on your extensive knowledge, not just of the art which we saw but of Venice itself. It very much made our short holiday and I would have no hesitation in enthusiastically recommending you anyone interested in engaging a private guide. Likewise the transfers between the airport and hotel which was a great experience in itself. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your husband and I will most certainly contact you again when we next visit Venice.
Please feel free to use these any of the above comments as feedback though I am sure they are typical.

Dear Cinzia and Luigi,
thank you very much for arranging the limousine and the water taxi from the airport to the Rialto Hotel, and then again the water taxi back to the airport – we arrived and left Venice in great style! And thank you to Luigi for the recommendation of his friend’s restaurant at Ca’doro which was excellent – we spent our first and last night there – the food was excellent.
We had a lovley week in Venice, and we will keep your details for our own future use, or to pass on to anyone we know from London who might be heading to Venice.
Thank you again, best regards,

Thank you very much for arranging my water taxi booking for yesterday morning from Venice Maro Polo to the Rialto Bridge.

Arriving in Venice
Two hours and 51 minutes later we were in Venezia, bambino (Venice, baby)! I had arranged for the owners of www.VeniceGuideAndBoat.it to meet us at the train station. Cinzia and her husband Luigi run this fine website, which plans Venice tours and transportation using professional tour guides and licensed water taxis…
