What a super tour! Our guide was fluent in English- almost all tour guests spoke Spanish. We loved gliding through the canals of Xochimilko, eating barbecued corn and listening to Mariachi songs aboard our trajinero. Visits to the UNAM University grounds and the Frida Kahlo Museum were memorable too.
Excellent tour! Very friendly and personable guides. I had always wanted to visit Coyoacan and the Casa Azul. This tour made it easy and fun.
xcellent trip the guide Ligia was fluent and knowledgable made some great movies all are already on the y tube

We had a tremendous tour led by Hermes, who was fabulous. His knowledge and enthusiasm was excellent and although a multi lingual tour he handled this seamlessly and without issue. I would not hesitate to recommend him. The driver was also to be recommended as excellent. He handled the traffic and drop offs perfectly and safely.
Great tour. You'll walk around Coyoacán, then visit the Blue House. We didn't see the Diego Rivera-Anahuacalli Museum, but went to Xochimilco instead.
Loved our tour guide. He was personable, friendly, very knowledgeable and gave us a detailed insight into the history of Mexico and the sights we visited. We would certainly use Viator again!
Love it! The family was so excited to see Frida's blue house, and a special treat we had enough time to stop by Diego Studio home (this is not part of the tour), we all paid the museum price to enter the studio. Wonderful tour.
I highly recommend the tour for people who would like to leave the navigation of the city to someone elso. Our guide was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. The appreciation for his Mexican heritage really showed through his informative interpretation of both sites. I would recommend more time for free exploration of both sites. This would have made the experience feel less rushed.
Good time on the canal. The food was OK, but the scenery was excellent.
This was my first tour in MX city. I was extremely excited about the Frida Kahlo museum and it did not disappoint! The National University was not so exciting but I was happy we didn't spend too much time there 30mins approx. I didn't know what to expect in Xochimilco, but it was AWESOME. The Venice of Mexico, was amazing and the boats are so beautiful! Lunch was not included in this tour, however, our tour guide did take us into a local market and we had great tostadas. Coyoacan is a beautiful town with beautiful architecture. A fun fact about Coyoacan, the movie 'Man on Fire,' with Denzel Washington was filmed in MX City and in the town of Coyoacan. Our tour guide was okay, she did explain everything to the group but at times seemed irritated by some of our questions and became short with some of the tourist.
Convenient and easy. Great way to see these amazing places in one afternoon.
I would recommend this excursion. Timely pick up and good information.
This tour was amazing!
I did enjoy the tour and our guide was very nice..They combined us with an all day tour to the floating gardens..it was an experience and I didnt get to do what else I wanted in Mexico city because of the all day tour being substituted but all and all an enjoyable experience and one has to be flexible when you travel.
This tour was amazing!
It was a great day, with a nice guide, who was on time. Coyocan and San Angel are beautiful places, which you may not be able to see without a car. Traffic in MC is brutal! Tour ends earlier than expected (1pm).
Frida and Diego are pillars of MC, and it's a good tour to be on to get the feel of Mexico and its revolution past.
Wonderful guided tour with knowledgeable and friendly staff. The opportunity to explore outside Mexico City proper is not to be missed. Thank you Viator for making a quick 48 hour trip a pleasant experience for a first time visitor. I'm already planning my next visit and will most definitely book another of your tours.
had a great guide and only pax, so treated well.
Enjoyed seeing Frida Kahlo museum and shopping at the market. Felt a bit rushed but good to do.
I was not happy with the delay of the tour I expected to start the tour at 9am, it was started at 11:15 although I had confirmed the tme more than 24 hours before.
The places we visited were interesting. The tour guides were nice but lacked organizational skills. Tour was very disorganized and chaotic with people constantly leaving, being left behind and going their own way. I know adults can be difficult but this was a little over the top.
Xochimilco was beautiful and so was Coyoacan. Our tour guide Sandy was nice, but the tours are just too rushed. You really need a few hours at each location to catch a good feel and to take it all in....not given enough time for that. The time given at the Frida Museum was good.
The day before this tour, I called the tour company to confirm our pickup time at our hotel and was told 8:10am in the lobby, so we woke up, got ready, and waited. By 8:30, nobody had arrived and the concierge told us that Amigo Tours usually picks up at 9, so went back upstairs. I then found an email the day before, telling us the pick up time would be 9:10, an hour later than we were told over the phone, but ok. At 9am, we went back downstairs and waited for our tour bus. By 9:30, still nothing, so we asked our hotel to call the tour company and ask if they were coming. They said that there was a lot of traffic, but they were on there way. They finally showed up and picked us up at 10am.
The Xochimilco was a lot of fun, as was pretty much the rest of the tour. However, the tour we signed up for boasted an expert tour guide to teach us about our surroundings and we did not get that at all. Our tour guide, Sandy, was very friendly and a lot of fun, but she brought her best friend on the tour with her that day and it almost seemed like a casual day with friends for her. I'd say the most talking she did throughout the entire day was about a boy she had met the day before and whether or not he was interested in her. It was fun and all, but we did not feel like we got any background information on any of the sites we visited, unlike our previous tour to the Teotihuacan Pyramids, where Leonardo, our tour guide, was full of historical background and information.
Even more frustrating was that because the tour had been running so late from the morning, we only got 30 minutes at the Frita Kahlo House and Museum, which was a real downer, because it was beautiful. We needed at least an hour.
On the way back, Sandy got off at the hotel of her friend, to get ready for her date with the aforementioned boy and left the rest of us with only the driver who didn't speak English. Overall, we were disappointed with what could have a great tour.
Terrible! We were picked up late. The guide could not be heard at the back of the bus. When it became hot, we had to ask for the air conditioner and the bus would not run. The guide left us most of the time. We found a cab and left the tour.
the tour guide did not know his subject. He did not take you to the locations you were supposed to visit and he did not speak English very well.
