I took my girlfriend out on the boat to propose. The river was flooded but "giovanni" made it special by making sure we got as much out of the beautiful night as possible. He was very accommodating. I recommend this trip to people all the time.

Had the most amazing time! Giovanni was so nice and very accommodating! He stayed true to the italian ways and sand very beautifully to us. I would recommend this to anyone, it was the perfect experience. Can't wait to book another ride!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water. Gian was great, helping us in and out of the boat and answering questions we had about the river. The boat itself is really interesting too!

We booked the one hour ride in the evening, 8:30-9:30, and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water. Our gondolier took us to the Wisconsin side of the river where there were fewer developments. The water was calm, the lights from the Minnesota side of the river reflected off its surface, and we celebrated our third anniversary in style.

We had the most lovely time on the gondola! It's best to make a reservation, as we did, and we ended up actually sitting next to our gondolier at the Dock Cafe for a pre-sail cocktail (he wasn't drinking, but eating a late dinner). If you are taking a late nite ride and have a hard time seeing where to... More

It was okay, and the gondolier was very nice and funny. But the trip takes you up over to the Stillwater lift bridge and back- the lift bridge traffic is NOISY- we were there during the week, and it was still very loud. It is not a tranquil ride. We also purchased a dining package- the whole thing cost about... More

According to their website "Walk-up rides are available as our schedule allows." Well, there was no one around to provide rides yesterday when I wanted to ride in the gondola. Maybe they should say that reservations need to be made in advance. Instead I went on the trolly ride around the city which was nice.

Perfect romantic date!!! I took my wife of 5 years there the day after I asked her to marry me. It was a truly memorable experience and I can't wait to take her here again. I highly recommend this attraction and will refer Gondola Romantica in the future.
