I booked a Gondola ride for the last night of our honeymoon in NOLA as a secret surprise for my wife. We hopped on the rail car with a bottle of wine from the Quarter to beautiful City Park (a must-see for anyone visiting) and wandered around a bit before meeting with the Gondolier. It was a great, peaceful experience... More

I took 2 teenagers, a cousin and her 6 year old on a gondola ride. It was a LOT of fun! We'll probably never get to Venice, so this was a close second. It was just a neat experience! Our gondolier was so informative and FUNNY. He sang a song in Italian and asked the kids to guess what the... More

I took my husband to New Orleans for his birthday weekend, and we were so excited to book Nola Gondola. Unfortunately it was so rainy we were unable to go, and the owner had to cancel. He called us far enough in advance we were able to alter our plans, and he offered a full refund. Because of his excellent... More

Great time - was worried that the 8 pm tour would be too dark, but the lights around beautiful City Park are just enough. And we had a full moon that provided some light. Robert was great and it was the last activity on our 3 day trip. Highly recommend it.

So, did you get it? This is something you have to do. The gondola is beautiful. The gondolier is the nicest person there can be. What a way to relax for an hour! The views of the park are the best! Do yourself a favor...don't miss out on this one!!!

My boyfriend surprised me by taking me on the Gondola, big surprise in itself as I certainly wasn't expecting to see a Gondola in New Orleans, it was beautiful, tranquil, very romantic, Boris and Natasha a pair of black swans were beautiful to see, then my lovely romantic boyfriend proposed, on one knee with a gorgeous ring - I said...

What a different side of the city. A quiet and relaxing rise under bridges, around a lake, with a great guide on a beautiful gondola. Big thumbs up, well worth it for either a romantic rise for a couple or for families with young kids.

This ride was awesome I lucked up by getting this booked because someone cancelled. Robert the owner returned my call after I had left a message to see about possible vacancies. As soon as he called I booked the 8pm ride. I and my wife arrived to this wonderful gondola and soft music playing. We were greeted by Robert himself... More

This was a surprise for a birthday, and we went at sunset...all I can say is, "WOW"! Robert, the gondola owner, told us about the history of the gondola, how he had it built in Italy and brought it over, all while listening to Andrea Bocelli and drinking champagne (you can bring your own champagne, he provides glasses and the...
