Ursula is an excellent tour guide, good English and knowledge of history. She makes sure everyone has a good time, highly recommended! The best part was the festive lunch on the boats in the canal, highlight of my trip to CDMX.

The day trip was very nice and the guide friendly, but we did not enjoy the food on the boat.

It was expensive and tasteless.
So better skip that and just have a beer.
Good for city tour,worst for the xochimilco
Nelia_C, 14-12-2022
City tour is ok. The xochimilco was worst. The lunch was not good not worth the money you paid for and boats were bumping into each other.I can recommend the city tour but not having lunch in the boat
