We are 2 girls proudly born in Mexico City, we are both lawyers and live in the south. We want to share with the world our diversity, culture, flavors, and traditions.
Lidice"I lived in England and this made me learn what visitors want to eat, drink and know about Mexican traditions, I love being able to guide them to unique spots of the city such as Xochimilco and other emblematic destinations."
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 work to bring you the best!

Honestly I had originally booked a different Xochimilco experience having not seen this one, but a couple weeks before that host cancelled. I’m so glad they did. This was an amazing experience in so many ways, and no small part of that was Rosa—such a sweet person and really cared about us having a great time. I went solo, but there were 2 pairs of 2 who were on the experience too, and it took no time for us all to almost feel like friends. I read some negative stuff about Xochimilco on other websites before going, as far as being so polluted and such, that was not the case! It’s such a unique, fun place and having a host like Rosa (or Lidice, who we met after) makes it so much better. This experience is a must-do in CDMX!

This was such a fun and amazing tour! Something super unique to Mexico City. Lidice prepared tasty snacks, sandwiches, and drinks for us to enjoy throughout the ride. She really knows the local culture and great spots to find food and things to do. She was beyond accommodating for us, even preparing separate dishes for our food preferences. Our group really enjoyed the music on the colorful party boats, exploring the different stops to see axolotls, and trying to test drive the boat!! Definitely recommended for a relaxing day on the water. Go earlier if you can! It gets super busy in the afternoon. If I ever had a special event like a bachelorette or birthday in the future, I would 100% recommend this tour!!!

This experience was truly amazing and I can’t thank Lidice enough for this. We had so much fun. There was food and drinks and great entertainment. I would recommend this to anyone who is planning to visit Xochimilco.

Lidice met up with us before the meet up time. She directed us to the trajinera where we (5 people) were spaced out with one seat in between us. We made our guacamole and spent the remainder of the boat ride eating and talking. There was music playing on a speaker onboard. Each party had their own guacamole (my boyfriend and I shared a bowl and there were two bowls for each of the other parties). Lidice translated for us whenever venders approached us. We listened to mariachi and split it amongst the 5 of us. Lidice was also willing to take pictures for us whenever it was time for a photo op. She told us interesting information about the canals. This was definitely one of the highlights for our trip! Thanks again Lidice!

Lidice and Flavio were so wonderful! They were thoughtful and precautious, but also so much fun. I would recommend this experience to everyone. Support local business and have a relaxing and super fun time in Xochimilco. I felt comfortable and welcomed and the day flew by. I appreciate all the details and preparation from the food to our little parting gift.
