The Best Taxis from Around the World
I’ll be honest, my Nona told me that if I didn’t include the Gondola’s of Venice on my list of best taxis than I should expect my monthly tomato sauce delivery to get “lost in the mail.”
The Venetian Gondolas have been around forever. We’re talking centuries. And they’re the most romantic transportation option. They are, however, very expensive. Like, $99 USD, expensive. But, to dampen the financial blow, just think about all of the Instagram likes you’ll get with a Gondola selfie. Now that’s value.
Few places in the world take their taxis as seriously as Tokyo, Japan. They may be a little bit on the pricier side, but you certainly shouldn’t expect to enjoy a ride as luxurious as a Tokyo taxi cab on the cheap.
To set the tone for your ride, the driver’s don chauffeur hats and white gloves. As far as the car is concerned, you can expect a pristine interior, automatic doors, and a highly-trained, professional driver. No foul-mouthed cabbies or pizza stained interiors in Japan. Just a clean, professional service that will probably ruin your opinion of all other cab companies for the rest of your life.
