Q&A with Joseph, General Manager

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
You can pedal your very own private boat on the Charles River. No need for a duck boat.

What special training do you or your staff have?
We have been creating incredible private tours on the Charles River for 15 years with our authentic Venetian gondolas. This is a very affordable and fun way to experience Boston and Cambridge from the Charles River.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Meeting people and witnessing the great experiences that we provide.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
You can bring a picnic lunch or dinner aboard, [and make sure to] bring your camera.

Customer Reviews

Was a great little adventure with my daughter and better then a spin class
Jennifer L. · August 1, 2014
I do not think it's worth more than the groupon price of $39 that I spent - but it was a great 1 hour time around the Charles with a friend!
