Highly recommend this tour! We went on a weekday tour led by Mallory and Fernanda which is much less crowded than the weekends and had a truly memorable experience. Our tour guides had a wealth of knowledge about the experience, provided all food and alcohol for the boat ride, and were so much fun to get to know during our time together! You will get a great bang for your buck on this tour and will be the highlight of your trip to Mexico City.

Janeth y Andre fueron muy amables y muy buena onda desde que nos recibieron, el recorrido deja mucho que desear ya que no hay como una preparación formal sobre la historia del lugar o la manera en la que te van llevando durante el recorrido, la comida no fue mucho de mi agrado ya que la tinga que ofrecen estaba salada y no se podia comer. El mezcal no es de tan buena calidad, huele y sabe rebajado creo que podrían conseguir algo con un mejor sabor, no hay medidas basicas de higiene como traer gel antibacterial o toallas de papel para limpiarse las manos. Los anfitriones son buenas personas y agradables pero para lo ofrecido en la aplicación hay muchos puntos que aun se deben de pulir para dar el servicio que incluyen en su reseña.

Andre y Janet fueron amables y atentos, sin embargo la experiencia estuvo lejos de lo que esperábamos. El costo es muy alto comparado con lo que nos ofrecieron: la comida es mala y no es lo que se anuncia; el tiempo de duración es menor al que se describe. Considerando que no nos narraron el origen de Xochimilco ni algún dato relevante, estoy segura que es mejor y menos costoso hacer la experiencia por cuenta propia.

We had such a unique experiences visiting the canals in xochimilco. Michel and Janeth took very good care of us and thought of little details to make it special. They were so easy going and knew so much history about xochimilco. We loved every moment. We only wish we had more time to spend there with them.

Andre Michel and Janet were great! We were in good hands the entire time. They took care of everything so we didn't have to think, worry, or figure anything out. They came with good music, great food, plenty of beer, tequila, and mezcal, and enough knowledge about Xochimilco. Plus, they were super friendly and we enjoyed getting to know one another. Definitely recommended!

We had a great time at the trajinera in Xochimilco. They picked us up in time an brought us to the boat where we spent ca. 2 hours floating around in the canals. We had great Mexican food, homemade Guacamole and Beer+Tequila. With us was another group and we had a lot of fun together. The host told us a lot about the area and we had time to explore some spots on our way. Our group was super happy that we did the tour!
