This was not a good experience for us at all. Locating the gondola was very very difficult for us since we were very unfamiliar with the area. We could find nowhere to park once we figured out where we were headed. The gondola itself was very underwhelming and we had exhaust coming back at us. The actual trip/ride was an extremely short distance, west from the Andrews bridge to the Avenue of the Arts//7th Avenue bridge where we turned around and went back the exact same way we came. We did not travel east of the Andrews bridge. The scenery was nondescript, but we did see some awesome yachts tied up along the way. There was also two beautiful Great Dane dogs in one yard that we passed. Pretty pitiful when that was a highlight of the ride, although they were great dogs. We paid so much for this boat ride, and never before have I felt so ripped off. We should have taken a water taxi for $5 each, and probably would have seen more. I must say, however, that our gondolier was a very agreeable, nice person. She tried to help us as much as possible with directions and accommodated our tardiness. I'm just amazed at all the other highly rated reviews. I guess they came from love struck couples who were happy gazing into each other's eyes over wine. This is not a family activity, much better options. This is the first time I have ever written such a negative review, and believe me, I regret that it was such a bad experience for us. I really would have liked to have experienced a 5 star activity.
