Columbo made our Gondola experience a ride to remember. My boyfriend and I celebrated our 1st Anniversary with the Gondola Company and we may have to make it a tradition.

Very friendly, professional and enjoyable gondola company operates in the Coronado Cays that provides day, sunset and evening 50 minute gondola rides for 2, 4, 6 or more persons. Very fun thing to do. Being on the water and riding among the water lanes of the Cays. Different, relaxing, romantic and just down good fun!

If you want to cross off gondola trip from your bucket list then venture to Coronado. Bring a sweater.

One might think to enjoy a leisurely Gondola ride down the canal waters and scenic pathways, you would need to travel to Venice. Lets rethink this….Coronado Gondola Company eliminates the need for that long plane ride. For the locals, think of this as a stay-cation, for visitors, put this on your must do list, to enjoy the San Diego's skyline... More

We were delightfully surprised at our wonderful experience with the Gondola Company in Coronado, California. My husband and I had recently returned from Venice, Italy and were missing the time we spent there. A cousin gave us an anniversary gift to the Gondola Company and we immediately booked with them. What a great time we had! The gondolier helped take... More

Went when the moon was full, it was a beautiful peaceful evening. You can bring a bottle of wine or champagne. I f you like they will have chocolate covered strawberries ready for you. They will have music for you or be lucky enough to have the guy sing. Had an awesome time

I'm so glad that we are fortunate enough to have this experience in San Diego. Aside from the most romantic thing you can do with your significant other, the customer service is off the charts! The prices are amazing! The gondoliers take you out for about an hour, they sing, they're funny, and EXTREMELY friendly. Their service provides you with... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a gondola ride with The Gondola Company. We didn't know quite what to expect since we had never been on a gondola ride before. From the beginning (making reservations) to the end of our ride we were treated like royalty. We found we were extremely happy with the ride and our... More

We took the sunset tour which was more expensive than the regular tour. But we figured we would see some beautiful sunset and it would end up being worth it. We were wrong, you only see the mountains and you're not even directly facing sunset so you don't watch sunset the whole time, and it was higher priced but the... More
