What You Can Expect

Coyoacán and San Angel Tour including the Frida Kahlo Museum

Outside the Frida Kahlo Museum

After morning pickup from select Mexico City hotels, kick off your 4-hour tour in Coyoacán, designated by the Secretary of Tourism as a Barrio Magico (Magic Neighborhood). Follow your knowledgeable guide along tree-lined cobblestone streets lined with 16th-century mansions. Stop by San Juan Bautista church, said to be one of Mexico’s most attractive churches, and admire its paintings and chapels.

Continue to Coyoacán’s highlight attraction: the Frida Kahlo Museum, aka La Casa Azul (‘the Blue House’). See first-hand where Frida Kahlo was born and later lived with her husband, the muralist Diego Rivera. Exhibits include her personal possessions and some of her iconic artwork, which give you further insight into the vibrant life of this world-renowned artist.

Your guide then whisks you to San Angel, another historic district of Mexico City. At the Ex-Convento del Carmen, gaze at the church’s tiled domes, walk about the former monastery grounds and visit the museum.

Next, enjoy free time for lunch (own expense) and shop for unique Mexican crafts at the San Angel’s Bazar Sabado (Saturday market), located inside a two-story building off Plaza San Jacintos. You’ll also visit the Diego Rivera–Anahuacalli Museum, home to Rivera’s vast private collection of pre-Columbian artifacts.

Your Mexico City tour ends with drop-off at your departure point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

A wonderful tour, guide was charming, helpful and willing to answer many varied questions about Mexico City. Frida Kahlo museum exceeded expectations - well worth the trip, but a little crowded. Saw a wedding in Coyoacan and enjoyed the market in San Angel - it was the last day of our holiday - made an excellent end to the trip.

The Frida Kahlo Museum is a must see in Mexico City and our guide Umberto was a fund of information about Frida, her life and times. The Coyoacan part of the tour was a mixture of drive-by and walking around a fascinating district, quite different from anything else in Mexico City with an opportunity to see the artists of today plying for business in a tree shaded square. The traffic back to downtown was horrendous but that's Mexico City.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

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.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

I did enjoy the tour and our guide was very nice..They combined us with an all day tour to the floating 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!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

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.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2014

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.
