We booked this with some concerns as our daughter who has been in Brisbane for more than two years had never heard of it. She has now. We book the one hour twilight cruise and could easily have spent a couple of hours. Brad, our Goldolier, was great and all in all we had a fabulous time. Good platter served with cruise and really great value for money. Would recommend this to anyone.

My wife and I had a very romantic 90 minute cruise in the Gondola, complete with a beautiful dinner. Our cruise was after dark and so visited an array of canals to appreciate the city lights and views of Gold Coast at night. The whole experience was well organised, professional and very romantic. We enjoyed looking at the various mansions, range of boats and just chatting as we cruised (relatively quietly) on the water. We felt it was value for money and something we were happy we did. Well worth it.

Had a romantic sunset cruise on 1st September, bought along and amazing red wine that went fabulously with the ham, chicken and fruit platter. Way more food than the two of us could eat. 1 1/2 cruise was the perfect length. The only thing missing was having someone on the bow playing a violin, however they would most likely fall off. 😊

We were given an evening cruise up the Brisbane river on a gondola for our joint birthday gift. It was a fantastic evening, warm with a cool breeze and a gorgeous sunset. The gondola was comfortable and the cheese platter was delicious. We took our own wine and water and it was a most enjoyable experience.

Gavin I can't express well enough how wonderful tonight was. Having read some negative reviews I was actually nervous. My darling loved his seafood and lit up when we went into the 'secret garden' to find a private pontoon and a Gondola for two! Such a wonderful surprise! The river was beautiful and the Gondola was exceptional. Worth every cent and we will do it again!

Hi Leisa L, Thank you so much for your kind review. When those last reviews were published the gondola's were under different managers. Now we are back on track... We are aiming to get to everyone's feedback on the cruises to make them exactly what our customers like. Can't wait to see you again. Gavin
