We had an amazing experience on the Gondola. We were greeted with the classic Hawaiian lei necklace. Took a few pictures with our very knowledgeable and pleasant gondolier. He gave us a history lesson about the gondola and also the city’s sites and sounds. The drink was cold and refreshing considering the warm weather. Locals waved as we passed by. We had a great time. I will definitely recommend this ride. Very relaxing and private.

The tour was nice and the Segway is cool. It was a much more scenic tour than Art, I was expecting to see murals around the city but it wasn’t like that. Still great and beautiful :) and nice tour guides!
