Everything about this experience was wonderful!!! Robert is a wealth of information. He pointed out history and facts as we went through city park. The views are amazing!!! Very relaxing and romantic.. We went at 7pm.. Perfect time.. The sun was setting and cast perfect lighting over trees and scenery.. This is a must do!!!!

My wife & I have been to New Orleans several times but never to city park before. The park itself was lovely on a perfect Spring day, but the gondola ride was truly beautiful. Robert had an ice bucket filled & ready for our champagne & provided cheese & crackers. He was knowledgable but also let us quietly drink in the beauty of the experience. If you and a significant other have a romantic bone in your body you will love this!

We went on our gondola ride in March and it happened to be pretty cold on the night we went. Well, our guide had a blanket for us (how thoughtful!) so we kept warm the whole time! Super sweet! We went underneath a few bridges and while we were under one of them I wrote a note to my husband with chalk that our guide provided, very cute... and he offered to take a picture of us during the ride which was nice.
We brought our own champagne and our guide had the glasses and cheese/crackers for us, there was also music playing which made the atmosphere even better. It seemed like he thought of everything. Our guide was very friendly and he answered all of our questions. We also saw a lot of wildlife even though it was pretty dark out. We'd do this again in a heartbeat! It would be perfect for someone wanting to propose to their significant other... I imagine a lot of people have probably done this in the past.

Amazing. Fantastic Wonderful. Great. Robert THANK YOU! I'll let the pictures say it all. This should be #1 for New Orleans/ City Park. Bring your own champagne/wine and light snacks and it'll be perfect. Absolutely worth the price. Make sure you bring your printed receipt and your camera! We did the 6 pm/ 7 pm tour to catch the sunset.

Robert, the Gondolier is excellent as is his Gondola. A must if you visit New Orleans. Located about 10 min. from the French Quater in City Park, it is a genuine Gondola made in Italy, with a very interesting history, takes you on a very tranquil and relaxing tour of the park. My wife and I fully enjoyed it and so will you!
