The Gondolier himself. Great romantic experience. Loved his singing. His skills handling the gondola. The time of day (Noon). The perfect Indian Summer Oakland weather! The Views! The Gondolier's knowledge of Oakland's history and Lake Merritt's ecology! We can hardly wait to return with friends on a full moon late at night!

It's very romantic and unique! Our Gondolier sang during our ride and we loved it. Beautiful gondola, scenery and experience. We also heard fun facts about Lake Merrit and gondolas. I'd do this again in a heartbeat!
