I've drunk tequila lots of times in my life. However, it was the first time I had that tequila ice cream. I had never even heard about it, but it was just AMAZING!!!! The trip was really interesting and what a better way to learn some history and facts about Xochimilco than with some delicious ice cream. Adriana and Chris were really nice and kind, I totally recomend this experience. Everyone should taste this :D

It was a very unique experience because we learned how to make tequila nieve the traditional way while we were crossing the river. The hosts handle the subject very well and receive you in a very warm way. They know a lot of Xochimilco’s history and also about this mexican ice cream called “nieve”. I had a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. Besides, the nieve we prepared was delicious! Thank you Adriana & Christian! Hope to come back soon again!
