This is the only way to cruise Newport Harbor. Hubby and I nestled into the gondola on a chilly evening for a sunset cruise. We were provided with fluffy blankets, sparkling cider, a cheese plate and chocolates. We brought a special bottle of red wine and there was no corkage. The gondolier was very gracious and clued in quick we were looking forward to couple time and respected our privacy.
As we cruised the channels, gentle music played (Italian of course). The light twinkling off the island homes and luxury yachts.
I found out see you later the cruise was only $100! We tipped the gondolier $20 and felt it was well worth it! Highly recommended.
