Definitely worth it! Frida Kahlo's museum a must see attraction, and we did not have to stand in the queue!
Frida Kahlo museum was great. Xochimilco is interesting, but not as scenic as I would have liked. Coyocoan is ok, but the churros we ate there were incredible. Murals @ the National University were very nice but that is only a 15 minute stop. Fernanda was a good guide and spoke English pretty well. Lots of walking. Mexico City is not a great place for people with disabilities.
It was a great day out and our guide, Harrison was fantastic. Coyoacan is a nice village, I would have liked to see the Saturday markets. Loved the Frida Khalo museum. The university was very interesting and Harrison gave a great explanation of the murals. The traffic to Xochimilco was very heavy and took us ages to get there and then it was really busy on the water, so not as relaxing as I'd hoped. I went on Saturday when the locals are visiting too. Maybe a week day would be quieter
During the week, Xochomilco is not as busy as on weekends, so my expectations had to be lowered. UNAM was interesting. We were a little rushed getting through the museum because of the weather and were delayed in getting back to Mexico City itself.
I have submitted my comments earlier this week but I missed to attach the photo of the broken car front glass.
The tour was interesting, but it would have been better enjoyed with an other guide. He was rude, indecisive and kept making up information. Xochimilco was definitely worth it and I wish we had stayed longer 1.5 hours, like the guide said, instead of 50 minutes. Next time, I will go on my own.
If I could rate a zero, I would! I was completely unimpressed with the entire experience. 1 The tour company confirmed, voluntarily that they would pick us up at the house we were staying at. They didn't turn up and their excuse was 'we forgot' as our reservation system doesn't sync with Viator. 2 We were asked to rush to the 'meeting point' by 9am. We paid for a car to get us to the point arrived at 8:35 only to wait for well over 30 mins for them to turn up and depart at 9:45am. 3 Totally uncoordinated start to the tour! The tour guide did not even take 'attendance' until after we had left the 'hostel' so it wouldn't have mattered if no one was there anyway. I selected an English tour but it turned out that it was mostly Spanish and I missed a lot more of the content because the majority spoke Spanish. I don't have a problem with it if I had booked a Spanish tour. 4 The sites to see were basically disappointing except lunch although the boat tour was cut short was we ran extremely behind. The boat was the best part of the day. The tour should skip the University for distance and traffic and focus on sites in the city. 5 The bus Air Conditioner DID NOT WORK! We were roasting in the bus and needed A/C because we sat in traffic for so long!! 5 The tour guide seemed disheveled and didinterested as the day progressed. He did not answer questions and lacked attentiveness. The guide would benefit from customer service training and how to control groups. Out of all the tours we have booked through Viator this is by far the worse and I would rather have saved my money and not taken the tour!
Great tour! Packed with information! I love the Trajinera ride along Xochimilco. Wonderful Tour guide
Excellent tour that combines socio-cultural depth, passion, curiosity and creativity. We walked around this amazing area and learned about how people have lived there historically, and how the community is dealing with economic, political and cultural changes that impact Mexico City today. We got to visit a working chinampa farm and learned about this ancient farming technique ,and then enjoyed a tranquil ride in a trajinera with some snacks. We even got to experience the trajinera lift that takes the boats from one canal to another! Heike is an engaging and personable guide who really cares about the communities she introduces to visitors. This experience is going to stay with me, and I look forward to more CDMX explorations with Hike a Hub on future visits.
Doing what: Xochimilco Boat Ride and Cultural Tour
Tour great and would do it again
The provider came late and picked up a lot of other late clients. We were on the bus for over three hours before arriving at Xochimilco. This, to us, was unacceptable. We toured the Frida Kahlo Museum at 5:00PM after having been picked up at 8:00AM. Our guide didn't adequately explain that we would have a couple of hours after lunch to be on our own. The Frida Kahlo Museum was lovely but we were so tired by that time and it was so crowded that we hardly got to see it.

This was a great way to spend a full day. In Cayoacan we walked through a town square, visited a beautiful church, leArned about Frieda Kahlo, and had a nice snack of burro and coffee. The afternoon boat ride in Xochilin was a lot of fun.. Jessica was very helpful, nice bus.

An excellent day trip. Coyocan was interesting, as was Farida Kahlo museum. The museum is overrated in my opinion. Xochimilco was an unforgettable experience. Had lunch on the boats which was excellent.
Special mention about our guide Sandra, who was very informative and helpful.
Amigo Tours is the best of the best. Our guide Leonardo was friendly, professional and very
patient. Do not miss Xochimilco, it is awesome.
We took the combined trip to Xochimilko, Fride Kahlo Musem, Coyoacán, and UNAM. Viator
combined the trip at a discount of 40.00US.
We had a wonderful time and thought the price was great! We were picked up on the Zocalo
near our hotel. Viator has mini vans and busses picking up people all over DF and taking them
to a central hub where they are distributed by tour.
-Trip was ordered online on iPad/iPhone with Viator app In Mexico City the day before
-Didn't have to deal with taxis, buses, mimi buses and schedules to get to all the locations
-Didn't have to wait in line at the Frida Kahlo Museum.
-Didn't have to negotiate with the boatmen at Xochimilco
-At the last stop people were distributed into vehicles going to the same district.
-Very good guides
-Would have liked to go into Olympic Stadium for a look inside
-We're photographers and would have liked a little more free time to explore on our own.
However, for most people the free-time was perfect
The tour was advertised as in English but as I was the only English speaker on it the delivery was done in Spanish followed by a short English explanation
Absolutely a must to see Coyoacan and Frida Kahlo Museum. Actually it used to be Frida's and her husband house. Xochimilco is the Venice of Mexico, a unique experience not to be missed. Be prepared to taste Mexican Food while travelling by boat.
We had a fabulous time and Alejeandro ? was wonderful particularly as he took his time to speak in both languages and was extremely patient. Good job
The excursion is really interesting. The only problem Was the guide.
A young girl with not many experience. But I love the trip.
my family and I really enjoyed this experience it was truly more then we expected. The tour guy was very knowledge and very fun. I truly recommend this tour.
Excellent guide, LouLou. It was truely a perfect day. Frida Kahlo in am and then lunch and afternoon at Xochimilco.
This was my second time to Xochimilco but my first to Coyoacan and Frida's. The experience of the floating gardens is not to be missed. Sandra was a great guide.
