This experience exceeded our expectations! With only 3 of us, our host was personable and open to discussing anything we asked about. We were able to visit cultural sites, hear the history & stories behind each, kayaked through the relaxing and breathtaking waters, stopped for some beers and snacks, then ended our trip with delicious tacos, tostadas & more! It was a wonderful experience for our last full day in Mexico City, an 11/10!

The tour was amazing. We had a lot of fun, great conversations, so much patience as we kept stopping to take photos. A lot of information along the way about area we stopped by.

Kayaking the canals was such a great way to experience Xochimilco! I loved seeing the farms around the canals and some of the birds and other wildlife native to the area. Definitely recommend the kayak tour as an alternative to the party boats!

Very good host. Expert in kayaking and storytelling. I felt like I was immersed into Xochimilco's past. The host was also a good teacher, he taught me how to get in and out of Kayak on request along with few other trips.

My host was Daniel’s cousin, Agustin. He was very friendly, and pushed back the experience by 30 minutes to accommodate my schedule. We met at a predetermined location, and took a short ferry to the kayaks. We spent several hours kayaking around the canals, making a stop at the island of the dolls and island of the crying women. Agustin was knowledgeable about the canals, and both islands. Plenty of bathroom breaks, and lunch was included at a delicious restaurant on the jetty. Overall, very peaceful and pleasant, plus it was fun being active on the water. My pants got wet, so I would bring a second pair of clothing, as well as sunscreen.
