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 hotel pickup 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 your Mexico City hotel.

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.

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.

Advantages
-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

Disadvantages
-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

Amigo Tours is the best of the best. Our guide Leonardo was friendly, professional and very
patient. Do not miss Xochimilco, it is awesome.

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.
