The Gondola ride at Gondola Adventures in Newport Beach was an overall great experience. The concept was very appealing, and certainly caught my eye while in SoCal for the Christmas and New Year's. The ride was comfortable, the wine & hors d'oeuvres were a good,...More
Thank you for your review. Not all of our gondoliers sing, so if singing is important to you, we recommend that you request a singing gondolier. That way we will know that you prefer not only a singing gondolier, but we will try to staff...More
We took a dinner cruise with Eddie. The food was amazing. It was really one of the best meals we had on our week stay in Newport Beach. We went during the holidays this year, and all the houses were so beautifully decorated. I surprised...More
Thank you for your review! Glad to hear Eddie played off the message in a bottle well - it's one of our signature surprises. We hope you cherish your memories of beautiful Newport Beach for years to come.
An amazing beautiful experience. Peaceful & romantic. My boyfriend knew I wanted a Gondola excursion while we vacationed in California, so he made the reservation. Just make the reservation online, or call them. We stopped by early afternoon, and the office is small that we...More
We're so glad you were able to enjoy a gondola cruise while on your vacation. Bucket list check! Please come see us again when you are back in town - we do have 90-minute cruises and cruises with varying food options as well.
it was wonderful and romantic. We loved it. I did wish that after the gondolier poured the champagne, that the meal was ready and waiting to be loaded onto the gondola so that we could head off right away, rather than eating the salad in...More
Thank you for your review, and we're delighted you loved your cruise. We appreciate any suggestions to help us improve our service. We have tried many different serving options with our dinner orders, and because not all of our guests arrive exactly on time, having...More
Anne helped me organize my engagement proposal. Thanks to their great reactivity and suggestions, we made the most original and romantic gondola tour for this special occasion. Steve, our gondolier, took a great part in it too. His very friendly approach and great singing talent...More
Congratulations on your engagement and we wish you a life filled with joy, love, and romantic moments. We are happy to have been a part of a beautiful memory.
Having never had the opportunity to ride in a gondola I decided this would be a good activity while visiting a relative in Newport Beach. There are various different options available, I chose the basic for two people. The gondola was from Venice and 50...More
Thank you for your review and we are glad you were able to visit us in beautiful Newport Beach. We definitely do have canopied gondolas for days when it is too hot, so we do recommend that guests take the daytime weather and season into...More
Gondola Adventures has a fleet of gondolas and quite a few gondoliers. The boats are real Venetian gondolas, not true of many other US gondola companies. Our gondolier Greg does this full time and was very skilled. He also sang beautifully in Italian, Latin and...More
Thank you for cruising with us. We like to say every day is Valentine's Day at Gondola Adventures - it is our goal to make every cruise romantic and memorable. Thank you for the tip about traffic in Newport. On holidays and especially during the...More
The gondola rides in Newport Beach are a must to do for that end of a day romantic experience. We did it in February at sunset and it was amazing. If you go, request Simon as your rower. He was terrific. Great personality, fun guy...More
We are glad Simon treated you to a romantic experience and sang in Italian for you - all of our gondoliers are wonderful, but he is one of the requested favorites because of his great, warm personality. We look forward to having you aboard again...More
AMAZING!!! I cannot thank them enough. The private gondola was just that. Me and my amor (love). In all honesty I am speechless and will recommend this to those that would love to fall in love again. The food was good. This is what we...More
Thank you for your beautiful review! We work hard to provide excellent service from start to finish. We also appreciate your suggestion about the gondola curtain to make for less ... awkward ... photos. We don't always see things from the perspective of our guests...More
