Three couples took the gondola from Strathmore village to Phillippi Creek restaurant. We had a delightful evening. Boris was a wonderful gondolier and even sang for us. We had such a good time we're are going to go to Chianti restaurant to hear him sing and play the saxophone.

Wow, what a fun adventure for my wife and her friends. Boris was very professional and created an experience that was like being in Venice with his voice and serenade. The Gondola ride lasted one hour and although my part was taking some pictures for the group, it felt very romantic and inviting. The Gondola itself was in amazing condition and obviously had hours of caring maintenance involved, plus the seats were comfortable. The section he navigated in Phillipe Creek is very protected from the wind and has several shaded areas in case you are worried about melting in the sun. Book and enjoy with confidence, as it's the only experience of its kind in Sarasota. Well worth the small investment.:)

I believe "Sarasota Gondola' is one of the exquisite and fun entertainments in Florida! Boris was just wonderful, attentive and fun, he gave an unforgettable ride with beautiful scenery on his gondola and sang us romantic Italian songs! We were completely charmed by all this amazing experience! Cannot wait to do it again! I highly recommend this gondola ride for any occasions: romantic, fun and family! Thank you, Boris! !!
