Took the Loboc cruise as part of my itinerary last May 19. I had previously read feedback about the cruise so my expectations were not very high. Over-all, the trip was very relaxing. We took Table 1 which meant that we were on the front part of the boat with unobstructed views. Buffet lunch was ok (once again, my expectations... More

The experience was really nice. However, the food was not. It wasn't served hot, iced tea didnt taste like it should be. Im concerened the way the lady wash the dishes as i got to see her do it - i seriously wish i didnt. Overall the view around was nice and i hope they get to fix the lights... More

This cruise is one the best Bohol can offer among many things but the experience where one is in a floating wooden barge and eating fresh grilled delight with other Filipino specialty is quite a treat. there is music on the cruise and one can even request to sing a minus one using modern english songs translated to the local...

Beautiful river tour with buffet lunch. Entertained by a stop where local children sing and dance. Very reasonable and part of my tour from Alona beach.

This was one of our stops in our all-inclusive day trip to Bohol, so I can't comment on the price. We waited 10 minutes in the souvenir shop area while our tour guide arranged for our seating. We boarded the floating restaurant and took our seats. We enjoyed a buffet of traditional Filipino food - fish, chicken, pork, rice, pancit,... More

After our Chocolate Hills, Tarsier viewing, Habitat and Hanging Bridge somewhat-adventure, we really save the best for last - the Loboc River Cruise. Parking is available in the area. Expect a queue before boarding on your boat. Seats and tables are arranged in a way that you'll be able to see the outstanding river view and its surrounding. Food (buffet)... More

I think the distance should be less than 8km as round trip but it is amazing with sing and dance of local people or tropical scenic. Food is no so good but enough.

This is a lazy river ride along Loboc River. It is a nice laid back relaxing trip with children hanging and diving down the river and a stop to locals performing songs and dance for tourist. At the end of the river is a small falls which was partly damaged by the earthquake. The boat ride comes with a buffet... More

This has such mixed reviews. You will either love it or think it is stupid. The river scenery in place is pretty, mountains behind etc. The waterfalls at the end were a joke. The actually look like drains flowing from the side. The buffet food is really average, the fruit and desserts were the best bit. The 'entertainment' was karaoke... More

The view of the river is amazing, the buffet food, not so much. I could've gotten a tour where there are no food included for a cheaper fee but AFAIK there's none of that. We stopped at an area where supposedly an Ati tribe lives wherein you can pose for photo-ops for "donation fees". Maybe it's just something a certain... More
