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!

- 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.
- Lancia C.

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.
I want to thank you for helping to make Charles and my wedding such a
special day. We really did not know what to expect and it was better than both of us had
dared to hope. Thank you! I have attached a couple of pictures.
- Lynne & Charles
You made a perfect ending to our evening....THANKS so much.
Dear Anne, Greg and all the Gondola.com staff, Thank you so much for giving us a truely
magical engagement. It was the most romantic and memorable moment that my fiance and
I will never forget. It is definitely something that we will cherish forever... It was perfect.
- Giovanni & Shaimaa
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.
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.
- 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.
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!
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.

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.
