I cannot express enough much I loved the NOLA gondola. First off, the City Park was absolutely stunning. Robert, our gondolier, was a great guide. He created a wonderful, romantic atmosphere for our ride. It's no surprise that he's witnessed over 300 proposals on his gondola! He also stopped under one of the bridges and handed us a piece of...

Robert Dula could not have been any more helpful with scheduling our gondola ride as well as helping us find our way around City Park when we got lost. The whole experience was wonderful and we will do it again if we return to New Orleans. The canals of City Park were beautiful as well as the many low bridges... More

We had a lovely time on the gondola to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The tradition of kissing under every bridge was fun. The gondola was comfortable and cheese, crackers, a corkscrew & glasses were provided - we provided the wine.

Our family of 5 took a late afternoon tour. After a long day of walking NOLA, this was an excellent way to relax and recharge. The gondola itself is a work of art, hand made in Venice. I would highly recommend for families and couples. I recommend booking several weeks in advance and time for just before sunset. We were... More

We had a great time and the gondola. The gondola driver and owner was full on information and I really enjoyed looking at the fish in the water. It was very romantic.

Super clean, drift thru the birds and trees, around the Art Museum Sculpture Park. BYOB champagne and Roberto supplies the glasses.

We went on the 5pm tour. Was met by Robert who extremely friendly. We took the wine and he supplied the glasses, cheese and wine. He explained all about the gondola coming from Venice. We toured the lake , wrote our names under the bridge. If you go to NOLA this has to be in your must do list.

This was a wonderful evening adventure. City Park is beautiful and such a wonderful quiet place in the bustle of the city. Unique and one of a kind experience. We went for our six year anniversary, got to join the bridge couple crew, enjoyed some champagne and watched the sunset over the lake. I can not recommend this higher for... More

We just got back from a five day trip to NOLA and this was one of our top highlights of the trip. The ride is about an hour long and you go under about a dozen bridges all over the lake in city park. We left before sunset and came back in when it was dark so my recommendation is... More

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!
