Itinerary
Stop At:  
Coyoacan
After being picked up at your hotel in Mexico City, you will head first to Coyoacán, which name in Náhuatl means “place of coyotes“. Here, your guide will give you a brief explanation on the origins and importance of this quarter and the surroundings, and you’ll have time to walk around its streets and if you want to, have a light breakfast (at your expense). The Spanish used the area as their headquarters during the conquest of the Aztec Empire and made it the first capital of New Spain between 1521 and 1523. The village remained completely independent of Mexico City through the colonial period into the 19th century. The borough of Coyoacan, along with its bohemian ambience and diversity of activities to do and places to visit, make its historic center a highly popular place to visit.
Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Museo Frida Kahlo
After soaking up the beauty of the Historic Center of Coyoacan you will visit the museum of Frida Kahlo, also called the “Blue House”, where you’ll learn all about the intense relationship between Frida, her works and her home. You will see some of her most important works of art and learn where she was born and also where she died. Although after marrying Diego Rivera she lived in different places of Mexico City, and abroad, she always went back to her old house in Coyoacan. Diego Rivera stated in his will that the home had to be donated, as well as all its contents, in order to turn it into a museum to honor Frida's life. The museum contains a collection of artwork by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and other artists along with the couple’s Mexican folk art, pre-Hispanic artifacts, photographs, memorabilia, personal items, and more. The collection is displayed in the rooms of the house which remains much as it was in the 1950s. It is the most popular museum in Coyoacán and one of the most visited in Mexico City. Additional to the contents in the house, you can watch a short video to get a better idea of the painter's point of view on life. It's also worth taking a small walk across the garden, completely enclosed by the four sides or wings of the structure. Its structure is divided by a stepped pyramid, a fountain, and a reflection pool.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Floating Gardens of Xochimilco

Here, not only will you get information on its origins, going back to the pre-hispanic times, but you will also you enjoy a ride on a trajinera, a traditional boat of the area.

Private Tour Extraordinaire!

We had a wonderful day with our guide, Leonardo, and driver, Carlos! They picked us up at our hotel and the adventure began right away. Leonardo's breadth of knowledge of Mexican history is amazing. We never felt rushed at any site. We even spent time in the Coyocan Market where Leonardo translated and offered suggestions for where to find certain items. Carlos is an excellent driver and made us feel safe. We can't say enough good things about this experience. Thank you, Leonardo and Carlos!

Una Aventura Magnífica

Our guide, Lulu, was fabulous at making us feel comfortable and taken care of during the wildness that is Mexico. As she said herself, she was our assistant, driver and bodyguard. But we were the boss! She made sure we understood what snacks we were ordering and the best ones available wherever we were. She would tell us the stories and give us advice in great English. Additionally when she would leave us to explore one of the stops (for example the Khalo museum), we decided the amount of time we wanted to spend within reason. I don't think we would have had as much fun or as easeful of a trip without our guide. Thank you!

Amazing private day trip!

Our guide, Ligia, was amazing! She picked us up promptly and we set off for Coyoacan. She was incredibly knowledgeable and shared a lot of Mexican history with us. We did a light walking tour of Coyocan. Then she gave us an hour of free to time to wander around the town before the Frida Kahlo Museum opened. Per her recommendation we grabbed churros and coffee. She went to check-in on the museum tickets and we met her at the museum a couple blocks from where we started. The line at the museum was shocking long (admittedly we went on a major holiday). The tour had sent people to wait in line to purchase tickets, so Ligia was able to obtain the tickets almost immediately upon our arrival. We were able to enter the museum within minutes of opening, effectively skipping the huge lines and ultimately being some of the first people in the museum. We then drove the rest of the way to Xochimilco. On they way, we stopped at Estadio Azteca to take photos. We had a Xochimilco boat to ourselves and we were able to get drinks/food (i.e. lunch) on the boat which was good. Then we had some time to wander around the market. On the drive back we also stopped at the university to see the amazing mosaic building designed by Diego Rivera. Overall this was an amazing day trip and we would highly recommend. Easily the best value day trip we've done in a long time!

Full-Day Mexico City Tour
Peter J
, Mar 2019
With only a few days to discover Mexico City, this was the perfect introduction to this beautiful city! Our guide Antonio was superb as was our driver. MC is so massive that it is not possible to do more than scratch the surface in a couple of days. The stops were all "must-sees," the University, Coyoacan (delightful neighborhood!), the Blue home where Frieda and Diego Rivera lived (I learned so much - 2 geniuses who found each other and inspired magic) and the fun, crazy boat ride in Xochimilco were great and Antonio added wonderful insights! Throw in a gaggle of rooftop bars (not part of the tour, but they were happy to take you wherever you wanted!) and you a near perfect day! Highly recommended!

I was really looking forward to the Frida museum. Our tour guide told us we could not access the Frida museum because the line was too long. He offered to take us to a different museum which also had paintings of Diego Rivera. We did not make it to that museum either. The whole tour also felt a bit rushed. At every stop we were told to be back in XX minutes. Throughout the entire trip we had people trying to sell us something. The guide was overall nice and knowledgeable but the tour was not worth the hefty price.
