It was a wonderful experiencie filled with lots of fun delicius food and culture. I’m really happy having take the tours


This is one of the best tours I've ever done! From start to end, everything was amazing. My guide was super knowledgebale and fun, providing our group a nice balance of history, culture and party. The area in itself is absolutely beautiful, so if you're looking for a truly authentic experience in Mexico, don't hesitate, this is it! I'm so glad my friends and I decided to do this.


The tour was great, it is one of the best I have taken in Mexico so far, it's very fun and highly recommended. If you want history, beautiful landscapes, good food, wonderful mariachi music and lots of fun, you have to book now!!!


It was an amazing experience!!! I from Mexico City and I have been in Xochimilco so many times before but this was by far the most fun I ever had in a trajinera (the boat). The tour guide, Christine was not only fun but also very knowledgeable, we learned a lot about the history of this place, the local culture and wild life, also about tequila and mezcal, and interesting facts about Xochimilco and Mexico City. She was so very high energy and making sure everyone was having fun. Isa was also very helpful from the beginning when we were making the booking and making sure we had all the information we needed for a great experience, even when the Uber driver tried to trick us to take us to a different place insisting that the Embarcadero de Cuemanco was closed, Isa texted me not to trust him because that’s very common that the Uber driver will try to take you somewhere else to make some extra money, unfortunately we were not the only ones, same thing happened to another couple in our group. Despite the unfortunate Uber experience, we had a great time and would totally recommend this tour!!!


Amazing experience! This is hands down the best way to experience Xochimilco! A great combination of nature, history, music, and SO much fun! This definitely makes it to the top of my list for CDMX recs.


What a fun afternoon! Our guide Oscar was great to hang out with. He told us all about the history, served great tequila and mezcal, and was a blast! Can’t wait to be back.


What an enjoyable experience! Luis was punctual and easy to locate at the meeting point; he was a great guide, ensuring everyone was actively involved in the conversation. I can't wait to revisit and bring along family and friends, as I believe anyone would thoroughly enjoy this adventure. The blend of music, drinks, and dancing is fantastic, coupled with enriching cultural insights and engaging conversations. Be sure to pay attention to the details in their description – remember to bring cash and ensure your Uber drops you off at the correct location.


I loved this tour, it was an exceptionally fantastic and distinctive experience. I had the opportunity to meet people from various parts of the world, share laughs, and gained valuable insights into the world of Xochimilco, while enjoying Tequila & Mezcal. Our guide, Luis, was incredibly friendly, adept at addressing all our questions, and truly the best guide one could ask for.
