Booked this as a special treat on a recent trip to Boston. Managed to get it to concide with sunset to add a little something extra. This was easily the best thing about our trip, besides watching the Yankees beat the Sox at Fenway! From the moment we boarded the gondola, our driver made us feel at ease. We were encouraged to take off our shoes, put our feet up, and relax. There was an unobtrusive accordian player who quietly played classics in the background. They also provided us with a wine bucket to chill a bottle of wine or champagne for our ride. This ride is a private way to enjoy seeing the city from a different perspective without the crowds of the duck boats or ferries. Perhaps a little pricy, but not much more than you would pay in Venice for the same amount of time on the river. Great for a special or romantic occasion.
