Great! Went at sunset for our 12 year anniversary and I must say it was great! Very comfortable and beautiful. I love the personal touches. Kisses under bridges, confessing our love under a bridge in chalk, the scenery, everything!! Our gondolier was great! He made us feel very comfortable. I won't tell all. You have to experience for yourself. Can't... More

We had the gentleman who owns NOLA Gondola & he took us on a ride in city park. We have an annual girls trip every year to NOLA from Ohio. This was the first time we didn't take the plantation tours & did this ride instead. There was 3 of us, we split the cost 3 ways, $35 a piece.... More

I must admit, upon finding out about this I was a little dubious. Assuaged by tripadvisor reviews I booked anyway as a surpise for my wife and I. Couldn't be happier that I did. From start to finish an excellent experience, incredibly romantic and just not something you'd expect to find in New Orleans. My wife loved it and we... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try this after reading great reviews on trip advisor and it was well worth it. We went out as the sun was setting (perfect time to do it) and we had a lot of fun. The scenery around you is beautiful. We enjoyed our wine with cheese and crackers provided by Robert. Italian music... More

We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and booked this thinking it would be something different to do in New Orleans. I must say it was all and more than we expected. Although is sprinkled on us a little bit, Robert pulled out the umbrella and away we went. Did not last long and I am so glad, because we... More

I found out about the Gondola ride from reading Trip Advisor and I'm so happy I did. It was such a beautiful and romantic experience and my honey enjoyed it too. Our guide Robert was knowledgeable, well prepared and had good timing. The ride is just long enough and gives a unique point of view of a beautiful park. This... More

The gondolier was knowledgeable and friendly. He took great care of us and really made us feel like we were special. Go at sunset for a great atmosphere.

We were in total agreement with the other reviews below. Robert and his service is a gem to the city. Not only were we able to get away from downtown and relax, we also learned the history of the park and a first hand experience of Hurricane Katrina. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Everything about this experience was wonderful!!! Robert is a wealth of information. He pointed out history and facts as we went through city park. The views are amazing!!! Very relaxing and romantic.. We went at 7pm.. Perfect time.. The sun was setting and cast perfect lighting over trees and scenery.. This is a must do!!!!

My wife & I have been to New Orleans several times but never to city park before. The park itself was lovely on a perfect Spring day, but the gondola ride was truly beautiful. Robert had an ice bucket filled & ready for our champagne & provided cheese & crackers. He was knowledgable but also let us quietly drink in... More
