Saturday was my birthday and my husband treated me to a gondola ride at Gondola Getaway in Long Beach. It is a one hour "cruise" through the canals of Long Beach with Jeremy, our gondolier. Along with the ride, we were serenaded by a beautiful voice. Since our picture was taken at the beginning, I already decided I would buy... More

Celebrating my birthday, my boy friend planned a gondola ride complete with pastries from Portos and wine from Danza De Sol. We took an evening gondola ride through Naples Island underneath the clear sky. The city tried to get Venice but well it was already taken. The tour took at least an hour. They were very friendly upon arrival and... More

I have been on the Gondolas from just a romantic night for my husband and I to a group of friends for my husbands birthday. Everytime has been a great experience. The gondoliers are amazing and the staff is friendly. I always book sunset as the views are incredible. Even after 5 visits I would still come back :)

I have always lived in the area and have heard about the gondola rides but never had been on one. My friend came to visit from Washington and I decided this would be a cute little romantic moment we could share. I made a 9pm reservation because I wanted to be under the night sky. Chris, our gondolier was awesome.... More

I've lived in Long Beach for years, and have often seen the gondolas in the canals of Naples. But only recently did I partake myself. What an absolute treat! There were four of us on the boat, and we shared two bottles of wine as we watched the sunset. Our gondolier, Jake, was fantastic! He pointed out interesting homes along... More

It is our 40th wedding anniversary.We had a Wonderfully picturest Romantic Gondola ride. The weather was perfect. The scenery thru the Naples canals was Devine. The gondolier was informative about the surroundings. We plan to come back again!

This was an enjoyable little trip across a lagoon and through some very interesting canals which are bordered by luxury homes. The boat is a very authentic looking gondola with two crewmen dressed in the Venetian style. Both the crewmen had a good sense of humour which was in full display when one of our party demanded that they stop... More

Have taken this cruise many times. It's especially nice during the holidays. Great way to see the lights and enjoy the atmosphere. They were very helpful in arranging a large group and provided the food. The gondoliers were very pleasant. Will definetely return!

It was our anniversary. My husband surprised me with a ride in a gondola, Naples, Long Beach. The gondola was made in Venice; the gondolier Eric sang us Santa Lucia, Arrivederci Roma. A beautiful sunset. An hour ride along the Naples islands, Long Beach. Now that's amore!
