Ride a traditional barge through Xochimilco canals, then visit Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera landmarks on an immersive 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.
  • Guided private tour of two of Mexico City's most beloved districts
  • 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.

Private tour
, Nov 2019
Amazing tour and excellent tour guide who was knowledgeable. Frida Kahlo museum a must visit place and Coyoacán street fair.
Somewhat disappointing for the price
, Nov 2019
"Floating Gardens" of Xochimilco? Legend of "La Llorona"? These were mentioned in the description, but Xochimilco was a bit of a disappointment. The good thing is we went early in the AM before the crowds. We had to walk over about 10 boats to get to the one at the front, near canal access, and then the 'tour' was just an out-and-back 45 minutes which gave an opportunity for the canal vendors to pull their canoes up alongside to sell us things. The Frida Kahlo Blue House was also disappointing, as we were expecting to see more artwork, and it is mostly a shrine to her. Anahuacalli was great. And it was convenient that we already had tickets, and that we didn't have to drive. But we could have bought tickets ahead of time and used Ubers and done this tour for less money, and at our own pace. I keep reading about these excellent tour guides. Ours was just meh.

Hello Jonathan, unfortunately in our product description we did not mention anything about the weeping event. Since it is only in season, Xochimilco has a standard of 2000 vessels that at the moment you arrive are inactive at the dock and for that reason in much more practical crossing over them until you reach one that is ready to leave the Dock without obstacles (imagine a few hours later, when all those boats would be in transit turning the water channel into a traffic jam) Regarding the museum house of Frida Kahlo it is very important to take into account that it is the house where he was born, lived and died the artist so if it is a sanctuary of memories and anecdotes very much in their own particular style, we deeply regret that our guide will not be able to convey the value of these elements of cultural identity with you. Thank you for your valuable comment, we will always seek to improve for you.
Boats and Frida !!

We had a great time with our guide Arturo and our driver Claudia. We especially enjoyed the Anahuacalli Museum and we didn't realize it was included. They were both very professional and friendly. Most importantly, Arturo had a lot of knowledge to share about Mexican history. We could not have seen all of the things we saw in one day on our own. The line at the Frida Kahlo museum was 2-3 hours but since we were with a tour we waited only ten minutes. I recommend it. Thanks again Arturo and Claudia!
Great way to visit Xochimilco and Coyoacan

We had a great driver, Elisio and guide, Jose Luis. They were very punctual, knowledgable, and gracious and patient in a lot of traffic. We were able to do some variations to customize the tour to us. They did not hurry us. Our tour lasted from 9am to 5pm Take the trip and ask for them by name! You will love it!
Great tour!

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.
Wonderful personal tour of Coyoacan and Xochimilco

David gave our family a wonderful tour of the sites on the south side of Mexico City. We toured the floating gardens of Xochimilco on a personal boat, saw the stunning murals covering the University, toured Frida's blue house, and viewed the personal artifact collection of Diego Rivera. We ended the tour with such a richer appreciation and understanding of the impact of Diego's artwork on the city. He gave us such a rich backstory on all of the sites and artwork, and showed up things I'm sure we would have never discovered ourselves. David was so friendly, knowledgable and 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!!
