Great gondola ride!

We had a great gondola ride! Wonderful Sunset! Definitely bring some beverages. Worth the trip a little out of town. Uber costs about $10 from downtown.

This was such a great little adventure. We had the most amazing gondolier who sang to us and shared fun information about the homes and boats we floated by. We then sat in the harbor area and finished our wine while watching the sunset. I would highly recommend the business.

I've taken a few gondola rides for special occasions and it's always something very special to do! My office is practically next door to them, if you could hear the comments from everyone as they depart, it's jist a beautiful experience!

This was a most magnificent way of proposing to the one you love. Our gondolier was experienced and had an incredible voice which he shared with us going through some of the canals of Coronado. We will definitely do this again!

My wife and I really enjoyed our time together on the gondola. We tried to get a sunset cruise, but it was full. We went during the time slot just after sunset and were not disappointed. They have Italian music playing in the gondola. The gondolier propelling the gondola was very skillful. They had warm blankets available for when it... More

Although I have to admit I was skeptical when my wife booked a gondola in San Diego on our recent trip this is a blast. Our gondolier was very personable and did a great job on a windy evening. Very relaxing and something that I would recommend.

My husband and I were looking for something different to do while we were in town visiting our Navy son. This looked interesting and it was a very pleasant time. I will say it goes by fast for the money but all in all it was fun.
