The company is based in Las Vegas but was easy to communicate with Anne the contact person and she updated prior to the event.

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

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
