He even filled us in on the places to go and one of his recommendations was our hangout for the weekend, in fact. Jon was the perfect guide for our intro to Dallas, very... More

My husband and I celebrated our silver anniversary with an open gondola ride. We had never ridden a gondola before, and we had a great time. Our gondolier was John, and he was very knowledgeable about the area and Italian tradition. He even spoke some Italian and sang to us during the ride. He also didn't mind stopping and taking...

Booked Gondola Adventures for my wedding entrance into venue on canal. The gondolier was very professional and allowed for an amazing entrance. The company is based in Las Vegas but was easy to communicate with Anne the contact person and she updated prior to the event. Well worth the money spent memories will last forever and even better than renting... More

About a month ago, I trusted Gondola Adventures to help with my proposal to my girlfriend of 3 and a half years. While I was worried about never seeing anything in person before booking the gondola ride, they did a fantastic job. Everything I requested was executed beautifully by the staff and especially by our gondolier John. My fiancee and... More

My husband surprised me with my first gondola ride for my 36th birthday. Our gondolier was Joe, and he was amazing. He had a great voice and he was very informative, telling us about the area and actually making us want to see Opera, of all things. It was a beautiful day with breathtaking views and it made my birthday... More

What a romantic gondola ride! My husband and I booked this dessert boat ride while vacationing in Texas, as we were celebrating our pregnancy with our second child. It far exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to book again during our next visit. John was a darling and made sure we were cozy and comfortable the whole trip. He... More
