We went with Lidice for our tour with our two young kids. The communication before the trip was excellent. The drinks, food and all the extras very great. Our kids had a great time especially when making their own quacamole and the Mexican band on board. We highly recommend this fun experience and doing the trip with Lidice. When returning we all received a nice souvenir, which was highly appreciated.

This is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in Mexico! Rosa is the best hostess, period! We sang, danced, eat, drink nonstop. If you are looking for a genuine Mexican/Latino experience this is it!!! Definitely when I’m back I’ll do this again and will recommend to all my friends!

The Xochimilco experience with Rosa and Sandra was fantastic! They were fun, attentive and generous hosts. The only thing I wish was that we more time to spend with them. Really a wonderful afternoon and would highly recommend.

A wonderful experience exploring Xochimilco. If you aren't into a more party type of atmosphere, you may look elsewhere 😉 Rosa took great care of us. The canals were beautiful.

This was such a memorable and fun experience for our group! I was celebrating my bachelorette and the hosts made such an effort to put together surprises to make the day special. We listened to a lot of great music, serenaded by mariachi, had great snacks! 5/5 stars!
