What you'll do

Welcome to Xochimilco. Know all the beauty of its canals in an ALL INCLUSIVE on the boat "let yourself be pampered"

-We will meet at a famous dock in Xochimilco. There will be a decorated boat ready to sail down by a main canal of Xochimilco. First of all we will get confortable on the boat, then we will make a toast with "MEZCAL". We will do a dynamic to get to know at each other.
- We will celebrate birthdays and other events.
-Briefly I will tell you about the history, customs and legends of Xochimilco. I will provide you some beer, mezcal, water and juices. I will play Mexican music the first half of the tour and dancing music the second half.
- My family is going to help me to provide you a mexican garnacha as an entry, the main dish is "mole with chicken". For vegans or vegetarians there will be a garnacha, "Mole" and vegetables.
- On the table there will be 15-20 bottles of mezcal of different flavors, you will be able to try all of them just be careful cause mezcal is strong and you could get drunk.
- You will be surprise with some cocktails "PALOMA"
- If you need to use a toilet we will stop on a nice chinampa.
- We will pass through a replica of THE ISLAND OF THE DOLLS where you can take some photos.
-By your count you might hire a Mariachi band (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED $8.00 USD per song) "the one who asks for the song, pays it".
My main function is to provide you with all you need to have a great day, yours is your good willing to enjoy the day in Xochimilco. "Depends on you if it turns into a party or not"
I will always make my best to satisfy your expectations!!!

This was my favorite experience of my whole trip to Mexico City! First of all Juan was SOO accommodating after I made a mistake in my booking, and he was even then still able to provide a vegetarian meal for one of the people in my party! On this trip we made friends, shared many laughs, Mezcal, Mariachi songs, and even went out together after the experience ended. It was a great way to finish off my Mexico visit. Highly recommend this trip, Thank you Juan!!

Juan Carlos and his crew gave our group of 5 an incredible tour! It was someone’s birthday and he had their name on the boat, had a candle and sang happy birthday. We were greeted with a shot of Oaxaca mezcal and cerveza and he had 10ish different flavors of mezcal on the table for us to drink. All of them were delicious! During the tour, he gave us a history of the area, fed us incredible food made in front of you, and played amazing music. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this tour if you’re visiting CDMX and want to do something unique. The boats are truly beautiful, just like Juan Carlos and his crew.

So fun! I was supposed to go with my friend but she cancelled last minute and I wasnt stoked about going alone but I went anyway. SO glad I did!!! My birthday was 3 days later and they put my name on the boat and sang happy birthday, it was so sweet. I met new friends, our whole boat became friends and we all went out after. Such a fun experience!
