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!

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.

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.

It's a fun evening, listening to Mexican music and eating Mexican food. Mucho cerveza and tequila
We got to sing, dance, and sway to the music. The employees are very amiable.
