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

My husband and I decided to do this as part of our anniversary celebration. It was so worth it. We loved ever minute of it. You are greeted by your gondolier and helped into your gondola. You bring your own drink and are provided an ice bucket and wine glasses. You are taken through the Coronado Cays housing area and... More

We had an amazing wonderful time. We chose a night ride on a warm evening and brought wine for our birthday celebration. Our 3 dogs joined us which we appreciated the dog friendly environment! The music was romantic and weather warm....perfect!! I would recommend this to everyone whether it is a date night or family day event!

We decided to do this adventure at the last minute. Making the reservation was easy and the staff was awesome. We were able to get the sunset time and we really enjoyed it.

My husband surprised me with this boat experience for our Anniversay and it was amazing and very beautiful. The guy who was with us sang three songs to us. He had amazing voice. It was a beautiful experience.

It was a hot day inland San Diego county, but when we got to our gondola and out on the water, even though it was the middle of the afternoon, it was quite pleasant. Our gondolier was very friendly and informative. It was a great pre-birthday activity!
