My husband book us for our vacation this romantic ride on 09/14/2019. We followed the directions and proceed to the cover parking on the email. Well, the email neglected to advise the covered parking for certain heights. Our vehicle is very large and tall and would not fit. We

Response from GondolaAdv, Manager at Gondola Adventures
Responded Oct 6, 2019
We are sorry you were unable to get your oversized vehicle into the public parking structure. We did attempt to assist you for almost a half hour, in advance of your cruise, when there was still time to solve the problem. The parking structure is not the only place to park nearby. Our phone staff is based in California and we do have representatives answering phones starting at 9:30am PST (11:30am CST). You left a voicemail a half hour before your cruise, which we received immediately. The gondolier called (no answer) and texted you - starting three minutes after you left the voicemail. He finally received a text back five minutes before your cruise was scheduled to start, saying that you were upset and had left the area. He then asked the location manager to give you a call because he, the gondolier, was at your dock with your pre-ordered lunch, waiting for you. The location manager reached you at your scheduled cruise time and told you that he was there and saw several spaces on the street as well as across the street, and he would assist you directing you to one of those spaces – or he would vacate his parking space (he also has a large truck) so you could park there. He was told you were already in Dallas and did not wish to return. Our confirmation emails indicate there is both a parking garage and street parking for the Canalside dock. The parking garage is not the only option for people with larger vehicles, and in addition to street parking in the immediate vicinity of the dock, there is also a lot of street parking within the surrounding 400-500 yard area. If, instead of departing the area in advance of your reserved cruise, you had called back in between your first message at and your cruise start time, you would have received a live person who could have assisted as well. It is unfortunate that you chose to leave the area a 20-30 minutes in advance of your cruise instead of waiting for a resolution.

My husband and I decided to book a ride for our wedding anniversary, which also happens to be my birthday. I made the reservation for the dessert cruise at 9pm and decided to add the message in a bottle touch for my husband. I loved how the gondolier set up the whole story on to
