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

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!!!
