I surprised my wife with a gondola ride to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. Our gondolier was Mike and he was outstanding. At one point he even sang us a song in Italian which we really thought was special. We went on a sunset cruise which we really recommend.

Eric was an amazing guide and I thank the entire staff for this absolutely breathtaking experience. What more could I ask for? The company, the wine, the view and lets not forget the singing all of what made this a memorable experience, one to be remembered. Thank you all.

Even better than expected! Prompt, courteous, professional, and well-prepared (thankful for extra blankets!). Our gondolier, Enrico, serenaded us with his amazing voice. A lovely surprise for us! This was a great way to celebrate our 10th anniversary!

Hubby surprised me with a gondola ride for our 6th year wedding anniversary. I didn't even know San Diego had gondolas, and was pleasantly surprised. Our gondolier was friendly and informative, the chocolate strawberries were sweet, and our gondolier sang Santa Luvia for us. A perfect end to a wonderful evening. Will definitely be recommending to family & friends.

My husband I took a private gondola ride to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. We left that dock at 6PM. Fortunately, the sun was still setting and we got to enjoy a nice sunset. Our gondolier, Enriquo was fantastic! Friendly, knowledgeable, and he serenaded us with two romantic italian songs! His voice is beautiful and it was a lovely experience... More

A fun and relaxing tour! We went with our 7 year old son and had a lovely time all snuggled with blankets, wine and the tasty antipasto platter. It was so interesting to see such a different side of San Diego with all the beautiful homes on the water. Fun to go and check out the Coronado Hotel while we... More

Ride was great, relaxing and enjoyable. Great way to spend an evening. Disappointed in the photo they took, it was night, but would have been great to have all 6 of us in it instead of just 3. They were not clear as to how the payment worked. We had assumed since we put our credit card down to reserve... More
