Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for an awesome time yesterday and the best customer service from the both of you at drop of a hat.  I can't believe we were able to make this wonderful reservation so last minute.  Couldn't have been better.  Not a cloud in the sky (perfect sunset) and nice breeze,cozy blankets,

an awesome Gondola (great call Ann!!!) and our Gondolier Rubino (aka Bobby...haha)was awesome! 

He was perfect.  Charming, super polite, funny, andmost importantly, knew when to be quiet and just row....hahahaha!  Seriously, he was a cool cat!  As you can tell we really enjoyed ourselves and the topper was the bottle.  Trini had no clue and was more than willing to help do her part to keep our environment trash free by fishing it outof the water!  Thank you both again, so much!  Definitely will recommend

to our friends and families. A hidden treasure in Newport Beach, for sure.




We had a great time last night. Above and beyond what we thought! 

We will definitely spread the word of the gondola!  We will be purchasing

a ride for our friends that are getting married next month!

- Joe P.



I wanted to take a moment and let you know how much we enjoyed our gondola cruise on March 5.
Our gondolier made the evening a night to remember. I couldn't have asked for a more memorable
for my proposal.  My fiance' continues to glow each time she walks past the chest that displays her
message in a bottle.She's told the story many times and I've recommended your services to many
of our friends who wanta memorable romantic outing. Proposals are memorable occasions and
I can't thank you enough for making mine a memory that we'll both look back on many years to come.


- Robert and Patrice



Just a quick note to let you know how happy my wife and I were with the Gondola dinner

cruise- she thought everything was perfect!  Rubino, our gondola captain, was excellent! 

She's been raving about the whole experience for the past two weeks to all her friends. 

Thanks again for helping make her 50th birthday one to remember.



I had the best time ever. It was so much better than Venice. Enrique and I enjoyed

it.  Steve E was wonderful and he had a great voice. :) We have already recommend

him and your company to a few of our friends. I have already emailed them your

contact information :) Thank you so much for all your help.

Thank you for a great experience on Sunday, June 9, when my husband and I celebrated our

anniversary. I wish to compliment Anne , who was incredibly helpful in guiding our option choices

to fit our specific needs and budget.  I also wish to share how impressed we were with the quality service, 

friendly personality, paddling skill, and singing talent of the gondolier (Bob). I would highly

recommend that he be requested by name.  I have already recommended Gondola Adventures

to family and friends.  Thank you, again, for providing a great anniversary celebration.

-Cinna W.


I want to thank you for helping to make Charles and my wedding such a

I will never forget. It is definitely something that we will cherish forever... It was perfect.

My son was unable to use his reservation last night and gave it to my husband and I.

While it was a short notice suprise it was wonderful.  Matt was terrific and had an amazing

voice.  Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed ourselves.

- Brenda K.


Just a little note to say thank you. My wife and I had a wonderful time on our cruise.

Having lived in Italy for 6 years it brought back a lot of memories. Thank you very much.

-George B.


Thank you so much for the wonderful anniversary cruise. Kris and I had a marvelous time.

You have been the centerpiece of our conversations with our friends ever since. Greg was amazing----incredible voice, humor and seamanship. The message in the bottle was amazing---Kris was blown

away, as Greg cleverly placedthe bottle and directed the gondola in its path.  Both of you--and

let's not forget Madame Anne---made our anniversary a very special and memorable one.

- Dr. & Mrs. M.


The gondola cruise was great ... a wonderful experience to share with my wife for our first aniversary.

I spoke with the person at work who told me about the gondolas today and told her of the excellent

service you provided.  Thank you again, and we'll definitely be back some day.

- Dave & Anne G.


I wanted to say thank you so much for helping me with my manager meeting yesterday.

The ladies had an amazing time on our ride thru the bay, and many are planning on returning

with friends or family. It was a special evening, thank you for being such a lovely person,

I enjoyed working with you and hope to talk to you again in the future.

- Liz 

Thanks, again, for the incredible service! I look forward to working with you soon.

- Andrea J.


Thank you so much for the wonderful experience, I will definetly never forget it. We had

an amazing time with Greg the Gondolier, he has a great voice and an amazing sense

of humor. He made the experience very worth while. The message in the bottle was extremely

romantic and memorable. Thanks again for the incredible service!!!!!!!

- Shanell & Darren


[Greg was] absolutely priceless as our gondolier. Eryn and I are still talking about [him] and the wonderful time we had.  I am sure we will be talking about it for years to come. Thank you for your enthusiasm.

It rare in this day in age for someone to be as enthusiastic as you are. We look forward to seeing you soon.

- Gary & Eryn


I would just like to thank you for an amazing time. Everything was perfect and it made our 3rd

Anniversary an experience we will never forget. The customer was excellent. Highly recommend....

- Melissa T.


I've found this online reservation from amongst the best I've ever dealt with on

with a business. The personal aspect of it and making sure to cater to customer

satisfaction, especially in remembering personal circumstances :).

- Hasib N.


I just wanted to say how great Stephanie and I thought this was. It was a beautiful way to propose.

Anne described everything very well, and was every bit as good as it sounded.

- Patrick & Stephanie


My husband and I wanted to let you know how very special our gondola ride was. Gondola Adventures

is a first class operation!!! It was a surprise for my husband’s birthday and it is now a memory that

we will never ever forget. From the minute you began helping me with this, you were “most wonderful” from start to finish and I cannot thank you enough. The gondola boat was beautiful, so very clean and

well taken care of. And our gondolier (Steven O.) was superb as well. He made it so incredibly special

and we will never forget either one of you, or Gondola Adventures!!!!!! Most often a company’s website

will indicate that they provide excellent services and show much nicer equipment, accommodations

etc. than what you actually receive in person. However, Gondola Adventures actually provides the first

class service and beautifully appointed gondolas and gondoliers that they advertise on their website.

We will most definitely refer family, friends and acquaintances to Gondola Adventures.

- Laela & Mark P.

I just wanted to thank you for helping me out with our Friday night "Adventure" and also to say

that we had a wonderful time. In fact, my girlfriend said it was the "best date of her life".

Thank you.  Lastly, Steve (Stefano) was a wonderful Gondolier with a remarkable voice.

- Mike G.


I just want to send a note of thanks -- we loved the restaurant, loved the

Gondola ride and my hubby loved the message in the bottle!

- Krissy


Just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful experience. Angela and I were married on

August 20 and we went to Paris and Venice for our honeymoon. The gondolas looked exactly

like yours.  I have to say, you were much friendlier though. Thanks again.

- Craig & Angela


Thank you for everything. My gondola ride was the best thing I've ever done. Our rower was so cute and made it even more fun. I had the time of my life. Thanks for putting things together. May the Lord bless you.

- Mariana M.


It was such a wonderful, magical night. We were celebrating our

24th wedding anniversary and it was so special.

- Suzanne L.



I just wanted to thank you so much for helping us book our gondola ride. You were so sweet helping

us book it for my birthday. We had such a wonderful time and our driver Kyle was so sweet. My sons and husband really enjoyed it too, and the dinner at the Chart House was great. Thanks so much again.

- Kathy H.


I have to say, it was even better than I'd hoped. An amazing time....

Our gondolier was awesome....We loved it...Thank you for a great memory.

- Nicholas P.

- Loretta A.



Thanks again for putting that gondola ride together for us! We had a wonderful time and our guy

was awesome. He pulled the bottle thing off so well, I even was surprised as I forgot about it.

- Marcus M.



I truly wanted to thank you for making such wonderful arrangements for our 28th Wedding Anniversary.

It really was a surprise for my wife; and our Gondolier, Stefano, was wonderful and gave us a few

fantastic serenades around the harbor. The message in the bottle was a big hit (setup nicely by Stefano);

and I even think my message hit a soft spot and was the icing on the cake. Thanks again to you, and Gondola Adventures, for providing us with an evening we’ll never forget.

- Steve & Cheri


Thank you so much for all of your help and setting up the most amazing setting for my second proposal....

it was absolutely perfect....she had no idea what was coming and after she got the message in the bottle, coincidentally there was a wedding taking place on the yacht where we are getting married on and Steve took us over to it to give us a glimpse of what we have to look forward to....from the boat, to the music, to the sunset , to feeding the ducks, to the bottle message, it was all too perfect!!!! thank you for making it magical

- Chris D.


I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you very much for the incredible team effort and

experiencewe enjoyed on our romantic sunset gondola cruise on Dec 16th. I believe we ended up

the only gondola going out -we had received a call saying because of the "Santa Anna" wind event

it was expected that all cruises on the Friday would have to be rescheduled. When the staff (I cannot

recall the lady's name) found out I had flown in from Ohioand was leaving the next day, she made a

point to try any means possible to get us out, even if it meant at 10pmon Friday, or 9am on Saturday

before my flight. As it turned out the winds calmed and we were able to go on the scheduled time at

4pm. When we arrived we were met by Steve the gondollier, who was very professional and conducted

the cruise in a wonderful manner. While he won't take credit for it - he managed to encourage a gaggle 

of ducks to meet us at the turn and tease us about picking up the message in a bottle - we are still

laughing aboutthe efforts the ducks made. I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to treat

a very special lady to a very romantic sunset on the gondola. Thanks for everything!

- Don M.


Thank very much for that experience. My wife and I really enjoyed it... Everything

came out just like I hoped...One experience me and my wife will never forget...

Hope to doing  it again... Thank you again for all the hlp...

- Jose T.



I just wanted to thank you for everything you did our engagement couldn't have went any better!!!!

I will recommend you to anyone and look forward to our next booking ( maybe an anniversary) but anyways I just want to thank you so much for everything you did it was a wonderful night

- Jason G



I can't thank you enough! Your hard work made it truly special for the whole family. A bit hard

to do when it's amixed crowd...adults, kids and a toddler. Also, Bob made it work for us and it

was just PERFECT! Everyone had a good time and the kids were very jazzed about it and didn't want

it to end (in fact, they want to do again soon!).Our gondolier, Bob was good @ reading the situation...

a ride that would be an overall treat for the whole family.I know most want it to be romantic but we

wanted it to be a special ride... fun, appreciate the beauty of the gondola, specially the beautiful day

and mostly, for the kids to feel this was a special ride. No one wanted the ride to end. Your company

does a very good job at making the gondola ride a unique and versatile experience well suited 

for any special event you may have in mind. Thank you so much!

- Nel S.


I just wanted to thank you all for the wonderful experience, I set up the gondola as

a suprise birthday gift for my fiance and she loved it , brought tears to her eyes, gondolier

had an excellent voice it was an experience we will never forget , thank you all!!

- Daltrin W.


I just wanted to take a quick second to let you know how great my experience with your company was.

My partner and I had never done a gondola cruise before, but I can honestly say we both had an amazing and beautiful cruisethrough the harbor before dinner last night. Our gondolier was very friendly, accomodating, and professional; notto mention he had a great voice and the occasional song he sang was very romantic and beautiful. Thank you again for the experience and we definitely will be returning.

- Steve W.


I just wanted to take this time and say THANK YOU! We absolutely love the photos, Cassandra did an awesome job. Our entire experience was so wonderful and we look forward to doing it again in the near future. Also I hope it's ok but I gave your name and number to a couple of friends that want to take their wife on the gondola. They should be giving you a call after the holidays. Again thanks and God bless!

- Lisa S.


Last night I had a marvelous time. Thank you very much for your service.

I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
