“Perfect Romantic Getaway with My Sweetie.”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

I have to say this is the best way to reignite the flame in your relationship. The Gondolier sang beautifully, we kissed, we cuddled, it was Heaven on earth. Would highly recommend to everyone!

“What a surprise”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

I had my Dad and Mom visiting from South Africa and surprised them with a cruise through Newport Harbour. They had the time of their lives. The gondolier was awesome and the food was just as good. It was one of their most memorable experiences of their trip and even though I won't be able to surprise them , they would love to do it again the next time they are over.

“Romantic cruise with excellent singing....”
Reviewed June 4, 2011

I surprised my wife for our 15th wedding anniversary with a gondola cruise yesterday (Friday, June 3rd) at 5:45pm in the Newport harbour. The reservation process was very easy and Anne helped with all the details. My wife thought the 1 hour criuse in an original Venetian gondal was incredibly romantic and relaxing. Our gondolier, Steve, was an excellnet host, singer, and paddler. I would recommend this cruise for anyone in the Newport Beach area with their special someone. Thanks for a great time!

“What a extraordinary experience !!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2011

My wife and I have never had a "Gondola Adventure" quite like the experience we had celebrating our second wedding anniversary. From Ann in the front office helping me with every part of the reservation to Greg our gondolier. What a unique experience Greg gives you. You feel like you are the only one on the water, from dinner to the story telling to the great live singing. An excellent experience. Very helpful, genuine and nice from begging to end.Thank You

“One of most romantic experiences any couple could wish for that clearly accommodates any financial status!”
Reviewed April 10, 2011

We would like thank Greg, our gondolier, and the entire Gondola staff for what will be one of most memorable moments for duration of our lives! The combination of the exquisite dinner, gondola cruise, Greg's operatic voice and the passion he demonstrated for his work, his wonderful wife and 10 and 13-year old daughters made our time together enjoyable, spirited and compassionate.Jodi still raves about the message in the bottle! As a senior leader within the U.S. Military, I applaud the volunteer work you have provided to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and the Boy Scouts of America. We always reflect back on our collective memories and Jodi and I can say we will hold this as one of most cherished Greg.

Your Friends,

Mike and Jodi
