Romantic Relaxation!

My husband & I were in Dallas for a get-a-way without kids. We did the 1 1/2 hour Dessert Cruise. It was very relaxing & romantic. We enjoyed our gondolier, Conner, who was very knowledgeable about Venetian gondola rides. He sang a few songs & did a wonderful job! I did the message in a bottle for my husband & I loved the way Conner pulled it off for my husband to find the bottle floating in the river!! It was perfect! The views are beautiful!! Highly recommend this attraction for a romantic outing!!

A Fabulous time!

We had such a great time with Jon as our gondolier. He was a gentleman, very professional and respectful, with a fabulous singing voice to boot! He even filled us in on the places to go and one of his recommendations was our hangout for the weekend, in fact. Jon was the perfect guide for our intro to Dallas, very well spoken, knowledgeable about the history, as well as the excitement that Dallas has to offer. Thank you Jon and GA!

Wedding Escape

Booked Gondola Adventures for my wedding entrance into ,venue on canal. The gondolier was very professional and allowed for an amazing entrance. The company is based in Las Vegas but was easy to communicate with Anne the contact person and she updated prior to the event. Well worth the money spent memories will last forever and even better than renting a limousine.

Everything I could have hoped for

About a month ago, I trusted Gondola Adventures to help with my proposal to my girlfriend of 3 and a half years. While I was worried about never seeing anything in person before booking the gondola ride, they did a fantastic job. Everything I requested was executed beautifully by the staff and especially by our gondolier John. My fiancee and I now have memories that will last a lifetime, and I would highly recommend anyone thinking about giving this a shot to go for it.

My First Gondola Ride

My husband surprised me with my first gondola ride for my 36th birthday. Our gondolier was Joe, and he was amazing. He had a great voice and , was very informative, telling us about the area and actually making us want to see Opera, of all things. It was a beautiful day with breathtaking views and it made my birthday amazing.

Hopeless Romantic!

I originally booked the gondola ride last year for one year wedding anniversary. Unfortunately tornado weather occurred the entire weekend so was given a 1 year reign check. So 2nd anniversary has rolled around so I decided to surprise hubby. Boy did Gondolier Jimmy exceeded my expectations. I opted for the manual 1 hour row with chocolates and sparkling cider. The weather was just right, Jimmy serenading, and me melting in my husbands arms. The scenery was picture perfect out of a book. Anne, you were right as Jimmy was great. Thank you for making my 2nd anniversary unforgettable. Will definitely be back :)
