The cruise is OK. It seems like there are two operators. One at the top of the river and one at the bottom close to the Ocean. We went to the one closer to the Ocean. The food was... read more

The cruise is OK. It seems like there are two operators. One at the top of the river and one at the bottom close to the Ocean. We went to the one closer to the Ocean. The food was OK. There was a standard buffet with some deep fried chicken, some fruit, rice, weird vegetable mix, and you get one... More

Did this as part of an 8 hour tour (Standard 'Countryside Tour'). The food was fine for me, my vegan/raw wife had some trouble filling up, but lots of watermelon! Its about a 60 min tour up and back the river with a 10 minute stop for a local community singing and dancing presentation, which was nice and entertaining. Make... More

It was in July when I brought the kids to Bohol. I want them to experience the Loboc River cruise and the only way to do it is to get the buffet lunch too. The price was too much for me. I have 6 kids and 3 adults and I paid around 2,000 plus. I wish they offer a big... More

Don't go there if you are looking for a gustatory adventure. The buffet is abundant for the stomach but not for the senses. However, the river is simply amazing. it is not just the water, but the community that protects it. Along the route, you will see happy women washing their clothes, boys diving from the coconut trees, children dancing,... More

Went on river cruise Lunch. The river is basically backwaters from the sea and is several miles long. The view is fantastic and enjoyable. The lunch was decent too with some light live music played, it was a different experience. -Don't miss this !!

Waited for over an hour, 30 minutes of which standing by raw sewage, then we get on the boat, another 45 minute wait, the food comes, and the buffet was like a feeding trough for cows,,, within 2 minutes, all the food was gone, then another 15 minute wait for them to bring more food, but it too was gone...

Loboc River is usually one of the things advised by people to be included in your itinerary. Well it sure was fun eating in a river buffet style, with matching videoke onboard. Some teams of singers serenading the tourists here and there. And that's about it. It could have been better if the food was something we could look forward... More

We went on this cruise as recommended by locals and other travelers. BIG MISTAKE. This one's a waste of time and money. The ride was short, and the food served was horrible. Very overrated. Wish we could have gone elsewhere.

I have been to bohol some years ago and have taken the loboc river cruise then. I think the cruise then was better and livelier than the one a took very recently. The boat waited for passengers until it was full before we left the dock so we were almost done eating when we left the dock. The food was... More
