Coyoacán, National University and Frida Kahlo Museum
After meeting your guide in downtown Mexico City, your full-day tour kicks off at Coyoacán, which dates back to pre-Hispanic times. Admire 16th-century mansions along cobblestone streets, and learn about one of Mexico City’s oldest neighborhoods from your informative guide. Today, the area has blossomed into a cultural nexus for intellectuals and artists.

Visit the National Autonomous University of Mexico, built in 1551, and check out the UNESCO-listed Central Campus, a collaboration that came together in 1952 involving more than 60 engineers, architects and artists, including muralists Diego Rivera and Juan O´Gorman.

Next, head over to Jardín Hidalgo, and enjoy a lunch break here (own expense) in the garden area boasting restaurants, studios and craft stalls. Next, enter the church of San Juan Bautista with your guide and admire the paintings inside.

A fan of Frida Kahlo? At Coyoacán Casa Azul (Blue House), or the Frida Kahlo Museum, immerse yourself in the tumultuous life and iconic artwork of this beloved artist. It is here where Kahlo lived and loved with her husband, Diego Rivera. Enjoy an hour of free time in the museum.

Xochimilco
Your Mexico City sightseeing adventure continues at Xochimilco, located 17 miles (28 km) south of Mexico City, a waterway network of floating gardens of flowers. An ecological reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site, this valley was a lake during Aztec times. To get around the scarcity of arable soil back then, the people developed chinampas, islands with floating reed mats with soil.

Spend about an hour drifting peacefully along the canals and admiring the chinampas from your colorful, flat-bottomed boat called a trajinera. Hear festive music from other boats, occupied by families and visitors celebrating weddings, birthdays and other happy occasions.

As your boatman moves the vessel along by pulling a pole through the water, pass other painted vessels transporting passengers and check out boat-vendors selling fresh food. Enjoy an array of dishes and drinks for purchase, including roasted corn, mole, mixiote (barbequed meat), tacos, carnitas, quesadillas, pulque (milk-colored alcoholic beverage) and micheladas (Mexican beer-based cocktail).

Your day tour ends with drop-off back at the central meeting points.

- Overview: This was our first tour using Viator. It was great! Our tour guides were Arturo and Andraina both fantastic and bilingual English-Spanish. Be prepared for lots of walking and being on your feet. Sidewalks and streets are uneven. Wear comfortable clothing.
- Departure details: It's a little confusing at first as the meeting point is located behind the Palace of Fine Arts and it's not marked with signs or banners. If you arrive a little early you may wonder if you're at the right place, but you are. Soon other tourists will gather then busses, guides and vans will appear. The various guides will get you on the right bus or van and you will be on your way. We were on a bus and it was very comfortable.
- Coyoacan: Our first stop was the plaza/old church. It's a lovely colonial area with shops and restaurants. We were there about an hour which was the right amount of time to walk around and check things out.
- Frida Kahlo Museum: About a ten minute walk through Coyoacan to the museum. The lines wrapped around the building but with the tour we literally walked right in. We were there maybe an hour. Could have used more time, at least half an hour see comments later about this. Great museum with lots of art and artifacts.
- Xochimilco: Awesome experience on the boats. As we were there on a Sunday there were lots of people and boats on the water - a big fiesta! We had mariachi's play on the boats we each pitched in 20 pesos and had lunch as well around 240 pesos or 14 per person including drinks that is made on another boat.
- National University of Mexico: spent about an hour visiting the campus. Could be cut down to 30 minutes and have more time added to the Frida museum.

I was very excited and really looking forward to sail on those colorful boats that is so well advertised for this excursion, however this particular part was a major disappointment. as we got in the boat we kept bumping onto the other boats, there was nothing to see but boats struggling each way into the canal. the Marciana music intertainment was okay but expensive. We had lunch that was cooked in another boat. I question the sanitation and hand hygiene happening in that boat kitchen.....I actually got very sick in the stomach that night.
The tour guide was excellent!!!!

Our tour guide Don Antonio was incredibly insightful. We were definitely grateful to have purchased this package when we arrived at the Frida Kahlo Museum as the entrance was a madhouse. If we had not chosen this tour we would have queued for an eternity.

The places were very nice. However, the tour guide was terrible. Her name is Lourdes goes by Lulu. She fell short of our expectations, wasting our time and making offensive comments. The bus driver was very nice, his name is Jesus. We give this tour a one star due to Lourdes inability to handle the group logistics and her poor explanations.

Such an amazing tour! I've been to Mexico City several times and this is the first time we got to visit Coyoacan, Frida's house, National University, and Xochimilco. Skipping the line at Frida's house and not having to wait a few hours is worth the price of this tour alone. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered everyone's questions. I recommend that you bring pesos and in small bills and coins, as it is easier to split the cost of food, drinks, mariachi, and tips at the end of the Xochimilco boat ride.

I really had a great time during this tour. Colorful Coyoacan and delicious lunch on the boat in Xochimilco, and very nice people. It was so pleasant time! One thing that I want to suggest for this tour is that I could not go to the Frida Kahlo museum because it closes every Monday. Please let customers know this when they make a reservation on Monday.
