Unlike roller skates, a gondola can't be waylaid by firecrackers or a lake of chattering teeth chewing modeling clay. Take a trip in a stalwart boat with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a one-hour gondola ride (a $300 value) and a bottle of wine (a $25 value) from Old World Gondoliers (a $325 total value).

Old World Gondoliers' navigators, dressed in striped shirts and dapper red kerchiefs, leisurely transport groups of two to eight people on one-hour, Venetian-style rides down the Indianapolis canal. The length of the tour allows passengers enough time to absorb the rippled reflections of every summer shrub and the stately buildings of downtown Indianapolis dotting each bank. The view from the canal is like seeing an old friend with a new haircut—it makes gondola riders ponder perspective and then wows them with a powerful punch in the kidneys. Old World Gondoliers boasts a BYOB policy, but it will provide Groupon holders with a complimentary bottle of wine to help transport passengers back to a time when couples clinked glasses and giant handlebar mustaches were haute couture.

Old World Gondoliers requires a 20% gratuity for every ride. Customers should expect to pay at least $60 for gratuity beyond the value of this Groupon.
