Interesting tour, average food

This is a 'must see' when visiting Bohol. The river cruise is a leisurely affair with a stopover to watch local dancing by village children. Food is buffet style and nothing to write home about but don't let that put you off this tour, it's worth going just for the trip up river past local villages.

I would recommend going to this place not just for the food, or just for the tour but for the combination of the two. While you eating lunch you get to see life on the river. The boat stops off on a floating stage where locals sing and dance for the boat and give the tourist and opportunity for a... More

We took this cruise before a Chocolate Hills trip and were pleasantly surprised. It was a nice cruise with beatiful scenery of the surrounding local forests and the river was surprisingly clean and calm. The food we were served was of very good quality and plantiful. Its worth a look.

Food was not great. It was not crowded when we went. View was great and you get to see houses where the locals live in. Lush green forest. Towards the end you watch some locals play their "bandurria" (mandolin), sing and dance, nothing fancy or elaborate. Understand they have to play for every boat that passes. But donate generously.

the scenery is stunning. you may get a chance to swim in the river, but don't worry, its not the amazon so you will be fine :D. the food was ok, everyone was really nice and the locals dance for you. nice addition to the day if you are in Bohol to see the tarsiers or chocolate hills

Pristine nature and breathtaking view. We a were little aprhensive of the floating restaurant in the begining. if you don't care much about the food this will be a great experience as the food is quite not to our taste.

Food is not that great, but the experience of sightseeing the beautiful river, waterfalls and seeing the locals dance and sing along with the guest is really neat

we didn't really know what to expect here as our itinerary just said river cruise. It was really busy and we had to queue for a while, this was dampening our expectations somewhat. Eventually we were herded on to the boat, which was multi national to say the least. The buffet came out and it was a little bit of... More

They should really advertise this as a river cruise - and not as a floating restaurant! The buffet food was cold, and not nice. I didn't eat anything at all. The cruise itself was enjoyable, however. Bit cheesy with an on-board singer but I enjoyed it!
