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

We took a gondola ride to celebrate our anniversary. This was well worth the money!!! It is bring your on wine but they provide the glasses and the ice! The gondola travels around an area of ritzy Coronado homes and your "driver" will even sing for you!!! Take the sunset tour... a memorable evening..

After reading many of the EXCELLENT reviews here, my wife and I booked a sunset gondola cruise. We had a great time! Right from the beginning, everyone was organized, professional & friendly. My wife took a gondola ride in Venice years ago so I was interested to see how her experience would compare. She loved it! Our gondolier really added... More

We're so glad we read the tourist pamphlet and booked the gondola ride. Giovani was charismatic and very personable. They made sure we felt pampered from our arrival. Many thanks to the friendly staff and for the fun, and perfect ending of our 10-day vacation!

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.
