This was an awesome experience can’t wait to do it again !!
It was terrific! Robert was very conversational and informative. The Gondola, Bella Mae, was beautiful and comfortable. Robert spoke about her history among other fun facts. The crackers and cheese was a nice touch. The New Orleans City Park is so beautiful and peaceful that, when combined with Robert’s amazing talent, you can not help but have a wonderful time.

So glad to hear you had a wonderful time on the water and learned a little about the area! I'll be sure to pass along your kind words to your gondolier. Enjoy your week!  Best, Brooke
This was my favorite part of my entire vacation! Beautiful scenery, friendly tour guide, and animals all with gentle music in the background on a gorgeous gondola, it was really a work of art. Also walked around the park and sculpture garden, followed by some mini golf with shaved ice. All of which I wouldn't of discovered without the gondola tour. It was the perfect date day, really a wonderful experience.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
I admit I'm a little jealous of the experience you had. Sounds like a splendid day to top off what I'm sure was a great vacation. I will be sure to pass along your experience to your guide. Thanks for sharing with us and have a wonderful week!  Best, ​Brooke
