“Unique cultural experience”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Buffet on board was average but eating on a cruise was a cool experience. Plus the view was relaxing and the choir (singing kids) at the end of the cruise was really nice... Would love to do it all again with families

“Panaghoy sa suba”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Loboc river is so beautiful, peaceful and so clean. The food served on the cruise is okay, but you can't have seconds on the drinks you have to pay extra, and there are entertainers on board. I think it's best to enjoy the cruise with the nature's sound only, the gentle rush of the water and the birds nearby. Midway they presented folk dances to us and I think it's a good idea to showcase our culture.

“Beautiful tropical river, okayish cruise”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

The river is so breathtaking! The river flows through a valley, with dense forests and local houses on either side and the sound of crickets calling. The music/singer on the cruise boat is frankly quite disturbing in the middle of the forest. Food is okay, as everywhere else in Philippines. I found it more pleasant to kayak by myself on the river later.

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

We did this cruise as part of a day tour of Bohol. It was a fun and scenic tour. The entertainment on board was a bit cheesy but we sang along to the songs being sung. The food was average but there was a variety from seafood to chicken and salads. Fruit was also served for dessert. Enjoyed the cruise overall and recommend it to those visiting Bohol.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Just read the rest of the comments as to why it's overpriced.

I don't like the idea of stopping by the Ati tribe for some entertainment and photo-op. Whose idea was it? To the local authorities, enough of this tackiness. Please provide education and sustainable livelihood to the Atis instead.

All ranting aside, I fell in love with the Loboc River's blue-green waters and nipa palm tree-lined banks...one of the best attractions in the province.
