This was great fun. The food is really the least of the experience. The main tasting course was not warm. I enjoyed the fish and the chicken mole the best. The dessert tasting course was a selection of Mexican candies. What is really great is the music. The boat has many stops where you get to listen to the fantastic, authentic music while you are seated or dancing - your choice. The two staff members on board encouraged an extremely hedonistic ending to the evening, which some people laughingly participated in and others said, Oh my God, and looked away. I looked away. My 91 year old dad laughed. Its definitely a party night. The grounds are beautiful but you cant see much at night. I would like to go back during the day and enjoy the lush, tropical landscapes. I cant tell you how many staff people it takes to put on such a production of food and entertainment, 100? 200? More? Our transportation arrived on schedule. We had over half an hour at the site to taste some authentic cuisine, play games, go through the gift shop, etc., before we were called to our boat at 8 pm. The got off the boat for the last time at 11:30 p.m. Our transportation departed at 12 a.m. and we were the first stop, so all that was very easy. I have been waiting to see and hear authentic Mexican music and this was a great evening for music.

My husband and I had a great time so I do recommend the Xoximilco Cruise. Make sure when paying for the cruise that the transportation is picking you up near where you are staying. We paid 20 each for transportation however had to pay for 60 30 min. drive for transportation to get to the paid shuttle. When I made the reservation with Viator I entered the address where I was staying and if I would have been informed I would have saved my 40 60 and hired a shuttle from my Condo straight to the Cruise. This information was not given to me by Viator. It was a little scary to have to find a shuttle at midnight.

My wife and I were both very happy in taking the Xoximilco cruise tour and highly recommend. We loved the music, food, and entertainment. This tour definitely depends on who you have on your boat and what level of energy you have that night. Be sure you're well rested and come there ready to dance and have fun! I wasn't a big fan of how they push you into purchasing all or none of the pictures. We will remember the experience forever!

It was very fun. On time pick up. Lots of music and drinking. The food was not impressive but the whole mariachi and music was great. Over all it was a great time. Hotel delivery is past midnight. If you are going for the food not the tour for you

The tour was excellent! Jesus was wonderful on the bus very personable. The event was great fun. Our guide on the boat, Jordan, absolutely made the evening with his enthusiasm and sense of humor! I do think the food could have been better.
