This was an excellent way to see many of Mexico City's sites that are not centrally located downtown. The guide, Eduardo, was great and took us by Mexico City's World Trade Center, to the bull fighting ring, to the University of Mexico to view the exterior of the library, by the Azteca Stadium, to the Coyoacan neighborhood, and finally to Xochimilco where we took a boat along the canal. We enjoyed beer and marriachi music during the boat ride.
Very positive review overall. The sights speak for themselves (Coloyoacan, Frida, Xochimilco). You felt safe. The guides were good guys, and informative. Pick-up drop off at your hotel is great. Suggestions: 1) establish and clarify when the group meal will be; 2) Include the Coloyoacan market as part of the tour. Again, glad we took this tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour - Xochimilco is a must see! I was in Mexico two years ago and didn't manage this tour ,so delighted I got to see it this time.
Although the weather was not on our side (it was cloudy and raining), we saw much more than Xochimilco and the University on our way there. We had a very informative guide, the group was excellent. Perfect.
It was a very interesting tour. Xochimilco was very, very nice and tour guide was just wonderful.
We had a superb guide, and the whole trip such a memorable experience. He showed us all sorts of interesting things on the way out and on the return which we would otherwise have completely overlooked.
This day is a fun mix of all kinds of experiences. We got a great city tour and saw two museums that we weren't even expecting to see - the Diego Rivera studio and Freida Kahlo's home. Our guide was knowledgeable and very interesting. He kept us moving but we never felt rushed. The floating gardens of Xochimilco were a real treat - a step back in time in the middle of a bustling city.
Our driver was wonderful and full of information! We would ask for him again!!!
Xochimilco was very pretty. We basically just drove past the Univeristy however we did stop in San Angel and it was such a beautiful area. Our tour guide was fantastic, so friendly and knowledgable.
A very enjoyable day out and a good way of seeing parts of Mexico City off the beaten track.
The boat tour is more of a eat and drink tour while watching other Mexican families and tourist's do the same thing. Not much for the guide to talk about. The interesting thing is all of the vendors on the water selling all kinds of things. The mariachi bands as well are nice.
I really liked Xochimlco and the ride along the canal, and I think would have preferred more time out on the water than driving around the University. Too much driving on this tour.
