Loboc for the win.

We loved every minute of it. There are 3 different companies at the docks. I am not sure which one we went with but they all looked identically. The cultural dance experience mixed with the quality buffett was enjoyable. I would definitely go again.

Its a nice experience for new comers. But twas not the thing ul gknna do it again. And food from boat #13 is but just ordinary..not much to expect from local food. Been looking for a nice lunch buffet with variety of local nice food.. but instead, we enjoyed the scenery and cool native singers and guitarists along the sail.😀👍... More

What a lovely trip. The views along the river are worth the trip but, wait, there's more. We stopped at a floating stage where children from a special school program performed songs and dances. They were delightful. The food was good but not special although the coconut pudding (haupia) was terrific. As we floated along, I could feel my blood... More

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
