      Wow!
      The experience was beyond magical, breathtakingly beautiful, it was like being in a movie and I could have done it every single night of my trip. Had a great time and got great photos too. Thank you!

      Unsatisfactory
      Did not meet our expectations 😢. It's not worth the cost. The gondolier was very nice, accommodative, and loves his job however, the experience was not worthwhile.

      Best experience ever coupled with a picnic treat. Our gondolier was fun to ride with as he seemed experienced due to the way he was controlling the gondola and very talkative as well. The was a photographer in house and made things easier for us. Much appreciated.

      Highly reccomended
      We went for our 1 year anniversary, 40mins of tranquility on the water at sunset, the guide was helpful taking many photos for us, the boats are stable, safe and comfortable, and overall the whole experience was wonderful. Definitely doing that again!

      Blissful and surprising.
      What an amazing experience at the heart of the city. It’s such bliss and feels much longer than 30 mins. I highly recommend it. I’d love to return in the evening for a different experience. I’d recommend calling the reservation number after booking on TripAdvisor to confirm the booking as there’s a delay on when it becomes visible to the agents.

      Rain and all
      Although it began raining, Percy our gondolier gave us the option of postponing until another day but we were there so decided to do it. What a fun time. We would definitely do it again. Picnic basket was thoughtful and we stopped under the bridge to enjoy it,

      A pleasant sunset ride along the canals
      Arrived early and they were quite happy for us to depart at whatever time we wanted. The gondola is powered by an electric outboard motor so it was super quiet, making it a lovely 30 minute ride. My only issue was finding the departure point - they provided a street address, which was a bit tricky to locate, but if they wrote that it is from the U Shakka Centre, it would probably be a lot easier for us tourists to find.

      Quiet Evening on the Canals of Dudrban
      My wife and I enjoyed a 30 minute sail through the canals of Durban, South Africa. It was very peaceful, and our gondolier was very personable and professional. The canals are in a beautiful part of the city, surroindef by new apartment complexes. Unfortunately, you need to travel through some "sketchy" parts of the city to get to the area. Adjacent to uShaka Marine World, an amusement park with shops and restaurants.

      Value for money
      It was a great experience and very private affair. The staff was professional. I was late and they waited for me.

    The trip doesn’t offer much to see except other holiday apartments, but offers relaxation and tranquility while the guide slowly steers you around in the Gondola. The guide was friendly and chatty. This ride is perfect if you just want to relax.

    What a lovely experience!

    We bought a voucher and took the kids for a magical gondola ride.

    It was a sunny Durban day and the 20 minute gondola ride was perfect. The canals are beautiful and really gave us a different view of Durban.

    They made it extra special by showing the children a floating bottle in the water filled with sweets for them. Wow that made their day.

    Definitely a must when in Durban.

    This is our first time in Africa/Durban, and we wanted to do something different. This was great! Albeit a little murky at the beginning of the ride (most likely due to it being still water), the ride featured wonderful views of the city. Our "captain" was friendly and engaging and offered to take pics of us which was nice. Would recommend to friends but take the night ride next time.

    Russ Iz and self were staying in the Point Waterfront apartments overlooking the canal last weekend; below our balcony we could see the motor driven gondolas pottering along.

    Next day we strolled up the canal to ticketing at Zulu Safaris up the steps from the canal on the eastern side of the uShaka Mariine complex and bought our ride.

    Straight down and practically, straight on.

    Very pleasant, peaceful and rather unusual.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this lovely review. Please note that we do have a variety of packages (some longer than others) all viewable online at www.gondolas.co.za. Unfortunately there is currently no access from the canal through to the harbour. Kind Regards Kim
