Floating Gardens Of Xochimilco, Mexico City Reviews

  • My group and I had an awesome time here! We took a 4 hours boat ride. So, 2 hrs there and 2 hrs back. We went to the doll island. On the way there we made some stops to the other islands. Our guy was super nice and friendly. We saw some cows, drank some pulque (type of Mexican alcohol), and touched some axolotl (Mexican salamanders). There was this boat that came up to you and delivered food to you. Bring extra cash on you since visiting these islands and trying these things come with a price. Overall was a great experience. Would definitely do it again.

  • A unique and local experience, especially on weekends. However, we went on a drizzling Sunday evening and it was dead. We were told Friday nights and Saturdays are the best days to visit if you want a crowd. You can also pay for a collectivo boat (paying per person instead of per boat), but only during daytime hours, and possibly only weekends.

  • Xochimilco is a beautiful and typical natural place of Mexico City. It is definitely a place to visit while in Mexico as it is iconic. By the way this is a lovely and romantic place, however it can get really crowded on Fridays and Saturdays with the teenagers partying and drinking with their loud music. Yet, the area is very nice, cool and safe. The only thing that any non-Spanish speaking person should be careful are the People on the streets trying to stop you to sell you the entrance to the area, or to guide you to the "Trajineras" (boats on the canals). BE CAREFUL, they will try to scam you or ripp you off. I heard a story from our tour guide in which one group of Americans got ripped off by being charged $100 US Dollars for that normally costs around $20/hour or 360 Mexican Pesos.

  • A very exciting tour not to b missed. Relax and enjoy the views

  • First of all this address is wrong, I tapped the "directions" button on this link and saw all these pictures and reviews, was super excited, I get here and it's a giant swamp meet. Fix this problem to avoid others having to pay $14 uber ride.
