“Bad food, poor experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

450 pesos for a cold and bad buffet. A rivercruise that was boring with pathetic women singing on the riverside and on the boat. A waste of money and time.

“Food was bad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The view was worth it, never mind the food it was borderline unedible, just take pictures and enjoy the view. Shame they force you to pay for it. Water is not included that was extra,

“Just average...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

The food was ok and its a neat idea to cruise down the river while having a buffet lunch but its not much more than that. Cost is about P450. Food is pretty good and the view is basically nothing but palm trees on both sides of the river but its relaxing either way. Worth the stop if you are into that type of thing.

“Cold, Old Food. Boring Sad River”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We were looking forward to this portion of our tour. Since the River Cruise is a tourist attraction, specialising in lunch and a river cruise, you'd think the food would be good, or the river beautiful but neither was the case.

We had to pay 450 P Per Person. We stayed at Bohol Bee Farm and the food there cost less and was DYNAMITE so paying for a cold, old buffet lunch was more then disappointing.

The cruise packs on the tourists, you eat as soon as you board - are charged for any food you don't eat and then the old boat (they are in a cue so you end up on what ever boat is up next) starts up, a local blasts his 80's songs (loud!!) and you putter down the most boring river you'll ever spend time on. It stops at a sad dock where a group of local woman play ukulele's and sing three songs - man o man - I say save your 450 p per person and just go down the river and donate it to these woman,

All of the tourist attractions were so disappointing and often very sad - avoid esp any animal attractions!

“The buffet not worth the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I was excited when I saw one of the itineraries of our country side tour was buffet lunch at Loboc river. Because I haven't tried something like this before, eat while cruising up the river. The view was nice. But the buffet, for me its not worth the money :(. With only several choices of food. And for the drink we only had 1 glass of ice tea. If u want other drinks u should pay more. I hope they can improve it so the tourism in Bohol can be revived again. I know people there are trying hard for it. Lets us support them by inviting our relatives and friends to visit Bohol again!
