Excellent tour that combines socio-cultural depth, passion, curiosity and creativity. We walked around this amazing area and learned about how people have lived there historically, and how the community is dealing with economic, political and cultural changes that impact Mexico City today. We got to visit a working chinampa farm and learned about this ancient farming technique ,and then enjoyed a tranquil ride in a trajinera with some snacks. We even got to experience the trajinera lift that takes the boats from one canal to another! Heike is an engaging and personable guide who really cares about the communities she introduces to visitors. This experience is going to stay with me, and I look forward to more CDMX explorations with Hike a Hub on future visits.

Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the area. Taking the Metro and Tren Ligero to Xochimilco is very easy, from there it's a short cab ride to the barges. Once on board our guide explained the history of Xochimilco and how this was Mexico 500 years ago. Barges with mariachis, food and beverages pass by afterwards we went through the local market, on land.
