Tour guide was very courteous, and easy going. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. He takes you through the scenic city park, where you can view the ducks and swans, the sculpture garden, & do the traditional kiss beneath the beautiful bridges. If you do anything while in NOLA, take a gondola ride, it'll be worth the trip!

Most importantly, the NOLA Gondola website gave a very clear basic idea of what to expect. On arrival, we found Robert to be very welcoming and friendly. The gondola itself is beautiful. The gondola ride exceeded all expectations - it was very romantic yet fun at the same time. Gliding through the water with Spanish moss hanging from the trees... More

We visited New Orleans the second week of June and it was quite hot and humid. I booked this for 6:00 in the evening which was the perfect time!! Such a nice, relaxing ride under bridges and through the beautiful lakes/ponds of City Park while relaxing, romantic music plays softly in the background. The scenery is beautiful. Roberto was awesome!!!!... More

We had an 8pm time and the weather was perfect after a hot day. Robert greeted us warmly and chatted a bit about the area. The gondola is beautiful and Robert certainly knows how to work her magic. It was a perfect ending to a busy day being a tourist. I highly recommend not missing this opportunity while in New... More

From start to finish an excellent experience. Robert was very friendly and the gondola is beautiful and very well maintained. The trip through the lake and past the statue gardens, loads of birds and the odd turtle was romantic and just perfect. The tradition is to kiss under every bridge (just to be clear that is kiss your partner and... More

We were a bit apprehensive about this experience, but WOW it was excellent. The Gondolier was extremely knowledgeable, and explained the journey of the boat. We enjoyed our favourite wine, while being supplied with cheese and crackers. The park is beautiful to view from the water, and the light music was an excellent added touch. Our gondolier created an extremely... More

Chose New Orleans for a fun getaway but wanted something to make it a bit romantic. The Gondola sounded good so I took a chance. Booked online. For the price, the value is outstanding. Robert was so helpful. He had to rebook us because of rain and was more than accommodating. He is such a lovely guy, evidently loves what... More

I booked this gondola ride for my wife's birthday whilst visiting the city. Robert was great and made us feel very welcome and talked to us about his journey, from getting a Venetian gondola into City Park to his experience during Katrina. It was so peaceful there and the 50 min ride around the lake was wonderful, taking in some... More

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
