What You Can Expect

Mexico City Super Saver: Coyoacán and Frida Kahlo Museum plus Xochimilco and National University

Visit the Frida Khalo museum during your tour

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

I was hesitant to book this tour and do it all on my own, but his tour wraps it all up in a package, picks you up at your hotel and tours you around Mexico City.. I really don't think you'd want to try this all on your own. Our entire bus load had the time of our life. The guide couldn't be any cooler! We all laughed, learned, danced, drank and ate together. SO MUCH FUN!!!
I would recommend going on Sunday morning when the Xochimilco is hoppin!! Viator has their own named boat which makes it smoother. Plan this as a whole day trip just sit back, RELAX and let them take the wheel. we had time to take a disco nap, plenty of time to have dinner and make the Ballet de Folklorico de Mexico, which I also HIGHLY recommend together to complete a perfecet SUNDAY FUNDAY in Mexico CIty! : We truly had THE BEST TIME EVER!!!

Definitely worth going. The boats are s fun experience like no other. Would be most fun with a group of friends/family. Frida Kalho's house worth the visit as it the neighborhood Coyoacan.

Excellent tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was well-paced ... we had just enough time at each site. I would definitely recommend this tour if you visit Mexico City. I was particularly impressed by the University ... probably because I had low expectations.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

This was a great tour, not only because the sites were diverse and well chosen, but because of our marvelous tour guide Kevin. Kevin was bright, knowledgeable, energetic, funny and charming. He taught us a great deal without ever lecturing in an academic fashion and he welcomed questions and comments. He was able to switch effortlessly from English to Spanish without ever losing track of his points. In addition, he was able to corral our large group so that we kept on schedule. Bravo to Kevin and thanks.

The Frida Kahlo Museum is magical. Don't miss is! Xochimilco is a fun and interesting way to tour the last of the Aztec canals. Our guide, Lordes, from Amigo Tours was terrific.
