Rosa "I had the opportunity to study in Austria, I met great people, interested in knowing more about Mexico and its culture, and in the last year I have dedicated myself to reading about it and taking friends and family to know the trajineras of Xochimilco, among other tourist sites."

We had a great time! Everything was expertly organized. Lidice and Flavio were very profesional, friendly and fun!! They are certainly experts! They had great snacks and helped us make delicious guacamole. The mezcal was great and the beers were cold. I can’t wait to come again and bring all my friends! 5 stars!

Such a great experience in CDMX! It was so much fun, and I would definitely recommend this to any friends that are visiting. Beer and snacks were provided on the boat, so I would just recommend bringing water and pesos for passing food!

Lidice and Rosa were incredible! We would not have been able to experience Xochimilco without them. They were very responsive up until the experience, and even got Churros and Mariachi to celebrate one of our group memeber's birthday. THey thought of everything, the tour experience was organized and very comfortable. Highly recommend!
