What You Can Expect
Continue to Coyoacán’s highlight attraction: the Frida Kahlo Museum, aka La Casa Azul (‘the Blue House’). See firsthand 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.
Spend about an hour at the Frida Kahlo Museum, and then head south of Mexico City to Xochimilco, an agricultural network of waterway channels where many of the city’s flowers are grown. Board a colorful, flat-bottomed boat called a trajinera with your guide, and take a leisurely sail. Pass man-made islands with floating reed mats loaded with soil used as gardens, called chinampas, which was developed during Aztec times to get around the lack of arable farmland. Today, these gardens form an ecological reserve awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.
After about an hour at Xochimilco, your Mexico City tour ends with drop-off at your departure point.
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.
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.
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.
