Overview

Ride a traditional barge through Xochimilco canals, then visit Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera landmarks on a 6-hour, private tour of Aztec history and Mexico City art. This tour includes round-trip hotel transfer and admission to Xochimilco, the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, and Casa Azul, and features the mosaic murals at UNAM.
  • 6-hour private tour: Xochimilco, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo
  • Explore Xochimilco by barge
  • All admission included
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Private tour for a more personalized experience
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’ll 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 loved this tour- Brenda was a great guide and everything was very smooth and on time. We wanted to skip some aspects of the tour and Brenda and our driver were very accommodating.

Our guide, Brenda, and driver Arutro were the best! The tour was fun and informative, they let us go at our own pace, not rushing us when we wanted to linger and speeding things up when we wanted. They were also kind enough to tell us about other sights that we didn't know about and even dropped us there at the end of the tour. Yay, Brenda and Arturo!!

We loved this trip - it might have been our favorite in Mexico City. Carlos was our guide, and Arturo our driver, and they couldn't have been friendlier or more knowledgeable. We almost passed on Xochimilco but were so happy we didn't - going early in the morning before the party starts was the way to go - and get around in the crowded and colorful canals. The bonus was the Diego Rivera Museum, a spectacular edifice filled with his private collection of archeological artifacts. We loved the Frida museum as well. At one point we were hungry and Carlo brought us to the market at Coyoacan where we had the greatest burritos ever. Highly recommended!

Great experience. I have taken a lot of tours all over the world. We asked the guide to add a new stop at the end of the tour. She quickly made arrangements and made our request work.

If you get a chance to do this tour, see if you can get the combination of guide Brenda Aburto and driver Lorena Martinez. Their expertise made this tour exceptional.

The additional cost for a private guide was worth every penny. Our guide, Geraldo, was wonderful. He is a knowledgeable, dependable, and friendly guide who goes out of his way to tailor the tour to his customers’ needs.
Xochimilco, Coyoacan, and Frida Kahlo House should not be missed.

Wonderful made even better by our incredible Luis. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and amicable. We highly recommend Luis to anyone wanting an incite full experience in Mexico City. We enjoyed every aspect of this tour. Glad we went to Xochimilco first. It was beautiful and interesting. Coyoacan is a lovely area with many shops and restaurants. We felt safe. The Frida Kahlo museum was very interesting. Also the Diego Rivera museum was stupendous - a must.

Highly recommend this tour. It is so much fun to visit each site and experience how the locals spend their leisure time. Riding the boats down the river is an experience to be had. And, the Frida Kahlo museum is a must see. Our tour guide David did an excellent job timing each site visit. David is professional and knowledgeable on the history of each site.
