I can't believe Venice has come to Florida! The Las Olas gondola rides on the canals in Fort Lauderdale coined "the Venice of America". Truly a hidden gem. no longer, this company has been operating in Fort Lauderdale for 15 years now. Romance the pants off your lover with this one. Create a unique environment and get creative. Pop a bottle of your finest and see some of the most luxurious homes and gardens in Fort Lauderdale.
This is the best time to go. During the holiday time you get an added bonus. Not only will you have the most gorgeous ride the riverera, you can also view the magnificent home decorated and deck in Christmas decor. Your very own two for one special.
The gondola ride is 75 minutes long which to me is more than enough. The gondolier is in rear and you have your own private cabin in center, as music is played on the ride and have your horderves table right next to you. Ice, glasses, and plates are provided so thats one less thing you have to worry about. You can bring wine, champagne, soda etc. and finger foods on your ride to make it exactly your style. I say this is an occasion to pop out that Ace of Spades, Cristal, or Dom Perignon don't you think?
Some sexy ideas
There is also a sweet sediment that can be done for $60 extra. It's called message in a bottle, the case has an authentic antique look and includes a wooden treasure box, decorative corked glass bottle, burgundy velvet bag tied with golden tassels (with the bottle inside) set with a silky rose. You are given a piece of paper to write your own romantic message and place it in the bottle which will be hidden in the gondola and ready to be offered to your sweetheart at your chosen time during the tour. I just feel this is the icing on the cake it makes me gush just writing about it. Such a surprise! I hate surprises but, this is the exception. It is a keepsake and your loved one will surely be impressed.
Message in a bottle
The gondola holds up to 4.
The pricing of the tour for 75 minutes is $150 and can be booked by request a reservation online.
