Boris was an exceptional gondolier, he was very personable with an excellent voice. The songs sung under the bridges took my breathe away. He allowed us to sing along and was very friendly. I would definitely ride with him again and would recommend the one hour trip.

I received this experience as a Groupon gift and would recommend it for a different experience. Boris, the Russian owner, was our gondolier and was most charming. He engaged in conversation to answer our 20 questions, let us have our romantic moments, and even serenaded us with a song in italian. Look for the Groupon and go!

We are trying different things to do and different places to eat this week. We found this on Groupon and did not know anything about it until then. We went at 5:30 pm and had a nice ride around and saw 3 Osprey and their nest. The music was fun and Dan, the Gondolier, was an excellent singer. Go check it out it will be unique and fun.

Then go to Sarasota for a ride on a gondola! Dan, the son of the owner Boris, was very sweet and serenaded us. We glided through the canals and it was so enjoyable. Very unique and charming.
