We did a gondola ride at about 830 pm. We wanted to get a sunset ride, but we only called that same day, and the sunset rides are very popular and so they must be reserved well in advance. Nevertheless we really enjoyed it a lot. It was really cool. Our gondolier Giovanni was very friendly and made us feel... More

Great for a romantic evening. The only hitch is you have to cruise through residential areas and the view isn't too great but overall the service is good and high qualify.

Who would think about a gondola ride when you are in sunny Coronado? I wondered the same thing. Our daughter gave us a gift certificate for a 1 hour ride as a gift. So glad she did. We went in late afternoon and the water was calm. Our gondolier was extremely friendly and we had a great conversation. In and... More

We've been to San Diego 4 times, but never managed to work a gondola ride into our itinerary. We finally booked one, and it was great. Very laid back, relaxing, and romantic. Giovanni (maybe his real name, maybe not) was very informative and great to chat with. My husband was skeptical about booking it, but thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly... More

My husband surprised me with a gondola ride for my birthday and it was very relaxing and romantic. We had a wonderful time and the staff was very friendly. My husband brought champagne and they provided glasses, ice, a blanket, and soft music. The gondolas are gorgeous, and the views from Coronado are beautiful. Surprise a loved one with a... More

My husband and I took the hour Gondola tour last weekend and were nothing but impressed! Our guide was Columbo- he was very knowledgeable and an expert "driver". We truly enjoyed the views, the weather was perfect, and simply the best way to spend a romantic afternoon. We did bring our own bottle of wine, which I highly suggest if... More

My wife and I did the sunset tour and it was perfect. Our gondola "driver" was great. He talked to us about the company a bit and made random small talk. He also gave some great recommendations for places to go on San Diego. He even sang a couple songs. And guess what? He was really good. His voice carried... More
