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.

    great tour. Both museums were incredible. Arturo was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. Antonio was a great driver--very safe and helpful. I would change the restaurant we had lunch at. There are nicer ones and the one we went to was not very good.

    What a fun adventure and memorable day! Our guide Giovanni was wonderful, spoke excellent English, and was not only super knowledgeable, but personable and fun as well. My friend and I loved the whole excursion. I was obsessed with the nursery/garden we drove through where all the plants grown at Xochimilco are sold, and the actual boat ride at Xochimilco was super fun too. Highly recommend the micheladas if you happen upon the boat selling those. After that, we had a delicious lunch in Coyoacan and then to the Kahlo museum, which was very interesting. Then wandered around Coyoacan for a bit and got a chocolate frappe and bought some items from the street vendors. Overall this was very much worth the time and money! We were glad we chose the private tour as it was more convenient and personalized.
