My wife and I have done this gondola twice. Once for a random date night and most recently to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary. We couldn’t recommend this more !! For starters, seeing Fort Lauderdale from the canals is a beautiful experience and doing it from this authentic gondola makes the experience even more romantic. So many other boaters were taking photos/videos of us in the gondola and waving to us. Second, captain Martha is the best !! She offers interesting bits of information about the homes on the water but also let’s the experience be about the passengers being together. She plays romantic music while the boat moves along to get you even more into the vibe. Finally, you can bring your own champagne or wine or drink of choice onto the gondola! There is no better or romantic way to see Fort Lauderdale than sipping your own champagne from an authentic gondola going down the new river. For any couples or small groups looking for something new or romantic to do, look no further ! This is a real hidden gem of Fort Lauderdale.

Thank you for the 5 ***** review Gary ! Believe it or not , I have as much fun as you do ! It is always great to see you and Mercedes, and it makes it even better for you to enjoy your experience on board the Romantic Venice Gondola !! It is true fact that the gondola is the most photographed vessel in the world ! I always feel like I'm in a parade ! Happy Anniversary and I look forward to your next visit ! We will go the opposite direction and see different sights !

We scheduled a gondola tour on the last evening of our stay in Florida for our honeymoon. Unfortunately, as we drove to the boat, it started storming pretty bad, rain and lightning. Captain Martha let us into the boat and chatted with us as we waited for the slim chance that the weather would pass over. She waited patiently with us for almost half an hour, and finally the weather allowed us to go!! She gave us a wonderful smooth ride that was romantic and fun! We loved it a ton, it was perhaps our favorite part of being in Florida!

Thank you for your 5* review Michael !! So glad you enjoyed your Honeymoon Gondola Adventure ! I had a great time with you and Malorie ! That's our Florida weather ....rain and storms one minute and then it turns into a beautiful evening.... and that it was indeed ! We have learned to wait it out as long as possible to get that result ! Congratulations on your marriage and we wish you many years of love and happiness !

What a refreshing, interesting and fantastic ride! Martha is a treat, so personable & full of interesting info about the area! The tour is a dream! So relaxing, full of great views and an absolute treat. If you're in the area (or your day cruise gets canceled last minute and need something fun to do- like me), do NOT leave this off of your to-do list! Ft Lauderdales finest!

I love the Gondola tour! For my second trip, I took my parents along who were visiting over Thanksgiving. It is a really scenic ride along the New River and Captain Brian provides excellent narration about the local history, homes and folklore. Highly recommended.
