        Rude and obnoxious
        Extremely rude and disrespectful staff on board. I was shouted at by the man taking tickets accusing myself of “not having ears” and then shoved onto a boat. Dirty boat, rude staff - stay away from a corrupt company. GET THE BUS INSTEAD

        Shifty and misleading operator
        Operator it’s very hard to get in contact with On arrival they dropped us off in a vaporeto stop which was 100m to our hotel. When we booked the departure transfer 1.5 days in advance, they took more than 12 hours to let us know that they were not picking us up from the same stop but that we had to walk 1km with our luggage to a common pick up point of their choice. We sent several messages through the app and called directly but never answered. In the Tripadvisor app they confirmed the booking and information only said that we will be picked up 2-4 hours before our flight time so we had no exact time or exact pick up location and Since they took so long to reply or to inform us it was then to late to do the free of charge cancellation. Our flight was on a Sunday at 10:30am which meant we needed to be picked up at 8am and their office only works mon-sat 9am to 6pm They only replied to our messages on Saturday 4pm and advised that we will be picked up from 1 km away as it was not possible to pick us up closer to our location however every other boat and private taxis were able to get to our location easily without restrictions. When we asked for an explanation why they were meeting us so far away they only said it was not possible. In my opinion they are shifty and take advantage of the traveller by not giving enough to devise information well before the free cancellation period expires.

        Awful airport shuttle
        We paid 75 Euro for our family to ride the airport shuttle. Despite getting to our shuttle stop 1.5 hours before we needed to be at the airport some 20 minutes away, not one of the four shuttles that came could accommodate us (or the other irate travelers that queued on the dock). Staff told us more shuttles would be coming that could accommodate, which was not at all true. We were forced to take a private water taxi that I wish we would have just taken in the first place. Splitting that would have been the same cost to us without the aggravation. The Alilaguna staff then refused to refund what we paid. They'd be well advised to allow travelers to reserve seats in advance and up the game on their customer service. In the meantime, unless you're able to chance waiting hours for a space on a shuttle, stay away from this company and its shuttles with a 10 foot pole!

        Good service and cost effective but no good communication
        Easy transfer and good price however very hard to communicate as they don’t check or reply to messages. Our flight was delayed by 3 hours and we tried to contact them to let them know as we didn’t know if they would be open by the time we got there but they were not reachable. Did not answer calls or messages so this was very stressful for us.

        Mestre Station Venice has two companies operating; ensure you board the correct coach!
        Mestre Bus Station to Marco Polo Airport: Take great care when buying tickets as two companies operate from here and their logo is virtually identical; same colours and font, slight change to one letter. Three ticket machines were not working on site so I bought tickets from the kiosk selling drinks etc; €10 each which is the going rate. We boarded the coach and then found a m/c on the coach where you could pay by card but we didn’t know this. Having said that, I didn’t see it issue a ticket! After 5 mins, two guards boarded the coach & told us we had bought tickets for the other company and proceeded to issue a fine of €50 each plus €10 each for ticket costs. They would not just sell us a ticket! They issued fines of this value to an elderly French couple who had purchased tickets for the correct company online the evening before, but because they hadn’t got a physical ticket (was on her phone) they fined them! It’s a racket!

        Highly recommend
        Booked this taxi to travel from the airport to the Hilton Stucky hotel. This taxi is a incredible deal. Presented the PDF travel voucher from Trip advisor to the team at desk 71. We arrived at our hotel with no issues within a hour.

        Glad i took the water taci
        Great start to the visit, excellent value, wonderful experience and probably the quickest way of getting from the airport to Venice. I will use it next time, we had 6 couples on the boat, it was cosy but very sociable.

        Worst experience ever
        Worst ever at everything. We took tour to Murano, Burano, Torcello and they start late, but when some people were some seconds late they abandoned them on torcelo island!!!!!!! Even they saw them when the boat was leaving the port. Afterwards they left us in another port and another boat came to take us back and they were talking Italian and we couldn’t understand what was happening!

        Water Taxi to Venice Island
        I was questioning if I was going to be happy with this company after some bad reviews, but we truly had a Jane’s Bond experience dodging other boats on the rough passageway. The young men we met and our captain was polite, a man a few words, but he knew his job well and how to navigate the busy waterways and canals, plus helping us on and off the boat, and our much heavy luggage. ❤️ it. We were amazed by how big and beautiful Venice is. Thankyou for a very memorable ride and will not hesitate to book with them going back to the mainland.

        Couldn’t get the driver link to open and register
        I never found my transport person and had to hire another boat driver, ( fortunately that was easy and the booth was to the left of the public transport ticket sales just outside of baggage pickup) because the link I was sent the day(s) before would not open for me to register.

        Good transportation
        Excellent service Remember stop at desk 71 before going to boat dock. Desk 71 is before the tram walkway. If you have started walking on it in the way to the boats you have gone to far.

        Take the bus instead - it's faster and cheaper
        I wish I'd read the reviews of Alilaguna before deciding to use them to get to Venice from the airport. I thought it would be a pleasant, scenic trip to our destination but I was wrong. The employees were surly and condescending. We waited at least 45 minutes to get on a boat, and then were stuffed in a small section at the front with high windows you could barely see out of. We had planned to ride further but got off early and had a longer walk to our hotel because we wanted to get off. I wish we had taken the bus.

        Good water taxi trip from Marco Polo airport
        This was an easy and convenient water taxi trip from the Venice airport to the Rialto bridge. I would definitely do it again.
