“My husband and I had a wonderful experience on our Gondola ride. It was a warm and perfect San Diego evening. Our gondolier’s name was Bruno. I thought he might sing to us as we sipped our wine, but he played Italian music and answered all our many questions. It was a super fun, and relaxing experience.”
“Loved it, can’t wait to go back! Linda M”

“Amazing! So romantic, we felt like we were the only ones on the water , which was beautiful, our gondola driver sang .. he had an amazing voice ...the music was perfect .. the gondolas are authentic, flown in from France ... just an absolute great experience!”
“Enjoyable ride through the canals of Coronado Cays. The company was efficient and friendly. Would recommend this adventure.”
“Excellent local adventure. Had so much fun. Nighttime was the best time to go. Very quiet and romantic. ”
“My boyfriend and I had a great time. The guide had us laughing during the tour and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely do it again.”
“Our guide (Columbin) was great. He gave us privacy, but also answered questions we had. The gondola company was great. In addition, Cloud 9 Living was terrific. Easy to make reservations!! Courteous and helpful!!”
“Very relaxing and attentive to our needs. Can't wait to share this experience again.”
“We had a wonderful cruise with the Gondola Company in Coronado, CA. Our gondolier was friendly, very knowledgeable about the area, and serenaded us with a beautiful voice. We received our experience as a gift on the day of our anniversary and hoped to be able to use it that night. Even though advance booking is recommended, our Cloud 9 Living representative was able to book us for the same day within a half hour of our requested time. We had a great experience! Thank you!”
“My daughter and son-in-law gave us the gondola ride experience for Christmas. When they decided to visit in April, we added them and our son. What a great time we had! Enrique was wonderful and his voice is gorgeous. We've recommended this experience several times in the last few days. Loved it.”
“One of the best-kept secrets in San Diego. One of the best tours ever. A MUST DO!”
“It was a really beautiful day with calm water so that added to the enjoyment. My husband & I thought the gondolier was very pleasant & polite. He answered any questions we had & even sang Santa Lucia after first asking us if we'd like him to or not. Everyone we dealt with was professional & very pleasant.”
“We had an amazing time on our gondola ride with the gondola company. Our gondolier was so friendly and accommodating, and he even sang us a song in Italian. We really enjoyed our experience and would recommend this to our friends and family!”
“We got engaged! Super way to do it! ”
“There is just something relaxing about gliding along the water. This was a very pleasant experience and even more enjoyable, in our opinion, than Venice! Our guide did not seem rushed and the entire atmosphere was very soothing. ”
“Our gondola experience was wonderful and more than we expected. The evening was perfect. Very pleasant and relaxing. We definitely recommend this experience to other couples.”
“I booked the incorrect date and time and even on short notice I was able to reschedule without any problems. I have been working with Lydia Schroeder who was helpful and pleasant although my circumstances were challenging. ”
“When I originally booked my excursion I chose a time that I thought was already available. The next afternoon I was informed that the only other times available were alot later than what I originally chose. If I had known that before booking I wouldn't have changed my schedule around or chose another day than having to be put on the spot to make a decision for the upcoming weekend. The customer service representative was very sweet , but I wasn't pleased about the change in plans. Had the website had current listing times available this could've been avoided. For this reason I would hesitate giving cloud 9 as a gift to anyone as it was given to me. I wouldn't want to burden someone receiving their gift if there were other means to not do so.”
“Very relaxing experience, we felt like we were in Venice.”
“This was an anniversary gift to my husband. We were both very impressed and happy with the experience. Our guide was fantastic and definitely enhanced our excursion; great personality and wonderful singing voice. The food was delicious and the complimentary wine glasses a very nice touch.”
“My husband & I were not very excited to go.
