Coyoacán, National University, and Frida Kahlo Museum

After meeting your guide in downtown Mexico City, your full-day tour kicks off at Coyoacán, which dates back to pre-Hispanic times. Admire 16th-century mansions along cobblestone streets, and learn about one of Mexico City’s oldest neighborhoods from your informative guide. Today, the area has blossomed into a cultural nexus for intellectuals and artists.

Visit the National Autonomous University of Mexico, built-in 1551, and check out the UNESCO-listed Central Campus, a collaboration that came together in 1952 involving more than 60 engineers, architects, and artists, including muralists Diego Rivera and Juan O´Gorman.

Next, head over to Jardín Hidalgo, and enjoy a lunch break here (own expense) in the garden area boasting restaurants, studios, and craft stalls. Next, enter the church of San Juan Bautista with your guide and admire the paintings inside.

A fan of Frida Kahlo? At Coyoacán Casa Azul (Blue House), or the Frida Kahlo Museum, immerse yourself in the tumultuous life and iconic artwork of this beloved artist. It is here where Kahlo lived and loved with her husband, Diego Rivera. Enjoy an hour of free time in the museum.

Xochimilco

Your Mexico City sightseeing adventure continues at Xochimilco, located 17 miles (28 km) south of Mexico City, a waterway network of floating gardens of flowers. An ecological reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site, this valley was a lake during Aztec times. To get around the scarcity of arable soil back then, the people developed chinampas, islands with floating reed mats with soil.

Spend about an hour drifting peacefully along the canals and admiring the chinampas from your colorful, flat-bottomed boat called a trajinera. Hear festive music from other boats, occupied by families and visitors celebrating weddings, birthdays and other happy occasions.

As your boatman moves the vessel along by pulling a pole through the water, pass other painted vessels transporting passengers and check out boat-vendors selling fresh food. Enjoy an array of dishes and drinks for purchase, including roasted corn, mole, mixiote (barbequed meat), tacos, carnitas, quesadillas, pulque (milk-colored alcoholic beverage) and micheladas (Mexican beer-based cocktail).

Your day tour ends with drop-off back at the central meeting points.

Floating Gardens of Xochimilco
After the Frida Kahlo Museum, continue on to Xochimilco, an agricultural area located 17 miles (28 km) south of Mexico City where many of the city’s flowers are grown. Back in Aztec times, this valley was once a lake. Learn how the local people, as a way around the lack of farmland, developed islands with floating reed mats loaded with soil and used them as gardens called chinampas. Today, these gardens are an ecological reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Board a colorful, flat-bottomed boat called a trajinera with your guide, and for an hour take a slow cruise on the chinampa channels, passing by floating gardens of flowers. As your boatman moves the vessel along by pulling a pole through the water, hear from your guide about the characteristic boats, originally hollowed from logs and once used for transportation throughout Mexico. Pass by other painted vessels transporting passengers and check out the boat vendors selling fresh food. Hungry? Taste a variety of dishes and drinks, such as mole, mixiote (barbequed meat), roasted corn, quesadillas, tacos, carnitas, pulque (milk-colored alcoholic beverage) and micheladas (Mexican beer-based cocktail). (Food and drink purchases are at your own expense.) Hear music like mariachi drifting from other boats, occupied by families and visitors celebrating birthdays, baptisms, weddings, or simply a good time. After your memorable boat ride, enjoy transport back to downtown.

Don't buy if you expect to see inside the Frida Kahlo house
Suzie
, Oct 2020
This was my second tour with your company this week. The tour was fun and informational. Emmanuel, the guide was phenomenal. But, I specifically chose this tour to see the Frida Kahlo house. Once we got there we were told our tickets didn't include going inside. I was quite upset because I wasn't advised. I looked again at the tour information I had printed and it said going inside was included. I looked thru my email and I saw one in Spanish after I had already purchased my ticket from Viator. I speak English. I asked my guide to translate and it mentioned we could only see the house from the outside. The rest of the tour was great but now I have to buy another ticket to see what I was supposed to see yesterday. The tour advertised was misleading. I purchased my ticket Oct 12 and did not receive the notice until the day before.

Fabio & Mario are great. And also shout out to the driver, Tito. Taking food order at the boat could be better. With many people in the group, the chef only speaks Spanish, the translation could get lost & mixed up.

Boat lunch scam/no time to get your own lunch
Jeanette
, Mar 2020
If you book this tour please make everyone aware that the boat lunch is overpriced and underwhelming. The tour guide does not give you time to get lunch on your own leaving you starving for hours and with no other choice. Overall it was an ok experience but the scam at the end left a sour taste. Tour guides get a percentage of the mariachi and lunch you pay for and don’t tell you in advance what the cost will be. With all the excellent food there is to eat in Mexico City the overpriced lunch is mediocre at best. In addition, the lunch providers approach you in a rather aggressive matter to charge you for the lunch. My guess is that they’ve received many complaints about this tourist trap. Lastly, the air conditioning in the bus was broken. There was no warning about this for those with medical conditions.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2020
Good morning Jeanette Thank you so much for your comments. Our service in Xochimilco not includes lunch and in this lake the only option to eat in this place. No restaurants or markets all around for this reason the people who lives in this place offer tipical food vey good and traditional. However no customer is compelled to eat at Xochimilco. We will consider your review to improve our services. Regards. Amigo Group.
