Your tour begins with pickup from your Mexico City hotel and a walk around Coyoacán, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Mexico City. Take a stroll along cobblestone streets to small plazas as you learn about the history of this area from your guide.

Stop to admire Coyoacán’s 16th-century mansions and visit the church of San Juan Bautista, one of the oldest churches in Mexico City.

Next, visit the Frida Kahlo Museum, known as La Casa Azul (‘the Blue House’), and learn about the turbulent and colorful life of this world-famous artist. See where Frida Kahlo lived with her husband, the muralist Diego Rivera, and examples of her iconic artwork.

Your tour then takes you to the neighborhood of San Angel to visit the Ex-Convento del Carmen, where Mexico City’s only mummified bodies were laid to rest. Admire the church’s three tiled domes, explore the former monastery grounds and visit the museum.

Enjoy free time for shopping and lunch (own expense) in the Saturday bazaar, where a variety of Mexican crafts can be purchased. In the afternoon, enjoy a visit to the Diego Rivera-Anahuacalli Museum, designed by Rivera to house his vast collection of pre-Columbian artifacts.

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.
