What To Expect

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.

Parque Ecologico Xochimilco

This working in southern Mexico City gives way to the famous canals of Xochimilco, the last remnants of an enormous system to transport water that the Aztecs built. You can take walks in colorful boats similar to the gondolas while they pass browsing food vendors, artisans and mariachis.

1 hour Admission Ticket Included


Museo Frida Kahlo

Located in one of the most beautiful and oldest neighborhoods of Mexico City, the Blue House was converted into a museum in 1958, four years after the death of the painter. Today it is one of the busiest museums in the Mexican capital.

    Very nice tour. Definitely worth the money. They met us in our hotel lobby and gave us so much information.
    Giavonni as our guide was great.
    BarbaraRoller, Nov 2021
    We saw 6 different things in one day. The boat ride in xichimilco was spectacular. The Frida Kahlo Blue house had beautiful gardens plus a brightly colored interior. The Diego Rivera collection of Mexican artifacts was dramatically displaced in hundreds of glass lit boxes. Our guide Giovanni was interesting with many stories about the history of the places we visited.
    Informative, well organized and delightful

    Jose Louis our guide was a graduate of the university of Mexico in history and his knowledge and ability to explain and relate the past to the present day was top notch
    Great Tour

    We enjoyed our tour, covering Mexican culture and heritage. Our guide and driver were very good. Everything was as expected. Learned quite a bit of culture and about family traditions. Nice to have a private guide during our time in Mexico City.
    Best day ever !
    Sonya_Regina_Ian, Sep 2021
    Veronica our tour guide was very informative, She knows her history and Arturo our driver got us from A - Z very safely and on time. We definitely had a great time all day with the two of them. I definitely recommend choosing Viator for tours.
    Daniela_M, Aug 2021
    Veronica!!!!!!! You are the absolute best tour guide we have ever had!!!! This tour is AMAZING!!! I read some of the reviews prior to booking this trip, and I knew I had to get it. The driver and Vero were there 15 minutes before pick up time, they gave us time to get our coffee, brought water for us for the tour, Vero is extremely knowledgeable about Mexican history. Even advise us on what was expensive in Xochi (i.e. Mariachi) and suggested fair prices for various things that are up charged for tourists. Vero and the driver took us and showed us very authentic Mexican places to eat and shop. I cannot recommend this tour enough, plus Vero is the absolute BEST!!!!! We loveeeeeeeeeeeed it! I will be back to do this tour again!!!!
