The river is truly beautiful. Shame about the cruise, which is far too touristy. The food served on the boat wasn't very good and there was a guy singing in English, which kind of spoilt the trip...

Highly recommend paddle board or kayak in the river. It has a gentle current through the forest that passes some villages. We were the only ones on the river for over an hour taking in the forest and the hills. There are several tours you...More

As part of my countryside tour I did the floating restaurant for lunch and although the food isn't brilliant, the whole experience of being on the boat/restaurant and floating down the river with live music and stopping to see the local school children perform, was...More

Great little lunch/cruise. The food was ok: pancit, chicken, pork, soup, shrimp, & more. Let’s face it, the food was ok, but short cruise was peaceful and enjoyable. The cruise goes up river a bit and turn around to return back. On the way, singers...More

One of the most extraordinary experiences I've ever had. Wait for the sunset and pay a local 500 pesos each (quite pricey) and they will take you to a Firefly tree where you will see hundreds of females gather across a small section of tree....More

The lunch was okay, what we enjoyed most was the live music being played by a talented keyboard and voice team. We even get to jam with them! A lot of people on our cruise were Chinese and the singers played Chinese and Korean songs....More

What a fabulous experience taking a leisurely river lunch cruise on the beautiful Loboc River. Food was excellent and plentiful. Surroundings were absolutely stunning. The musicians on board did an excellent job and we had a very pleasurable trip. Highly recommend.

It's an interesting area with river boat tours but, we decided to try water bikes for a short trip up and back on the river. Not sure I would do it again but, it's part of the experience.

It was part of a day trip, buffet lunch and drinks were served during this cruise. Each boat had a fantastic musician and they were playing classic songs known to everyone. Interesting dances with bamboos were presented on one of the stops on the river.
