Upon arrival we were greeted promptly and taken right to our gondola. Everyone was nice and made sure to say hello. Our gondola rower was very helpful and attentive before we went out in the lake. He made sure to let us know some history as well as sang beautifully. My wife enjoyed it very much. The only thing I think she didn’t care for was the amount of attention that’s brought on you during the experience. This place is surrounded by condos/apartments. She was uneasy about so many eyes on us as we were trying to eat and enjoy the ride. We were photoed/videoed by many of the people that live there and were out by the water. They meant well but some people don’t like this. Just a heads up on this in case you do kind. Had unknown this beforehand I wouldn’t have chose to put her through that. Only other negative was they forgot the rose I paid for. I really didn’t notice till the end when my wife mentioned how another lady received one. At that point we were on the way to our Uber and I didn’t want to gonna into bring it up. That’s kind of my fault as well for not remembering. Overall, if you are looking for a special and romantic brats night then I would say go for it! I doubt there’s any other experience like this one.

This was one of the most unique and amazing experiences I've had in all of DFW! My fiancé and I absolutely loved the tranquility, peace, and beautiful sunset scene! A HUGE plus and shout out to Jimmy, our gondola rower - He went above and beyond! Sang us a few songs (he's an amazing singer), and played us some of his guitar. He truly made this experience 100x better than we expected! When we are back, we will definitely be requesting him. It was all so wonderful!!

We had a wonderful time on the Gondola. It was a relaxing and peaceful evening for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We had sparkling apple cider, chocolates, 1/2 a dozen roses, and a souvenir Gondola blanket. Our Gondolier did an amazing job. He sang songs that my husband and I both liked with his guitar. It was neat to see the entire canal area from the Gondola. It was a pretty night for the sunset cruise. We had a great time and would consider doing this again in the future.

Our gondolier Joe was great - such a wonderful singer, and he knew so much about the boat, the history of gondoliering, and the canals of Las Colinas. He was very steady at handling the boat - which he rowed the entire time! The gondola itself was beautiful and clean, and the dessert was delicioso!! Bravissimo, Joe, Bravississimo, Gondola Adventures!
