Departure Time

9:00 AM
Begin with pickup at your Mexico City hotel, then travel to Xochimilco in a private vehicle. Built on the remains of an Aztec city, Xochimilco’s canals and artificial islands are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and you visit the site by trajinera, a traditional barge with a flat bottom and bright designs.

Continue to the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, which the artist built for his collection of pre-Hispanic artifacts. Take in exhibits that celebrate almost every indigenous group in Mexico’s history, then climb to the second floor to see Rivera’s own works displayed. Drive to the historic Coyoacán neighborhood to visit the Casa Azul, or Frida Kahlo Museum, where the painter lived, worked, and died. Learn about her life and see important examples of her work, and take time to explore the colonial-era neighborhood on foot.

Make a final stop at the national university to see a series of mosaic murals that tell the story of Mexico in towering, symbolic designs. After visiting the murals, pause to see the Olympic Stadium before returning to your hotel, where this tour concludes.

We spent a day with our guide, Alicia. She and the driver promptly picked us up at our hotel in Mexico City, and we spent the day visiting Xochimilco, Coyoacan and Frida Kahlo Museum, with a quick stop at UNAM. The ride was safe and comfortable. Alicia provided lots of excellent information as she helped us navigate the many negotiations at the Xochimilco lakes. We loved our "gondola", eating, drinking and buying souvenirs along the way. Our stops at UNAM, the colonial neighborhood and market of Coyoacan, and tour of the Frida Kahlow museum were also fantastic. Our kids are ages 13, 11 and 7 and this tour was the right balance of fun and excitement for the kids, and culture for the adults. We highly recommend this tour and this company.

Angel was very personable and easy-going. Our private transport was comfortable. We had a really great time at Xochimilco and could have spent more time there. Coyoacan is also very pretty and was a fun side-trip. We enjoyed Angel's insights and knowledge. The Frida Museum was far too crowded for our taste, but having the pre-booked tickets through the tour was VERY helpful. Overall, totally worth and a fun time!

Our tour guide, Brenda, was great. She was super flexible (even taking us to a local pharmacy for a need that we had), knowledgeable, great pace, and easy to spend the day with. We loved our time with her and we learned a lot about Mexico, art, culture and history with her.
