Overview:

Float down the canals of Xochimilco and stroll around the colonial district of Coyoacan in Mexico City on this full-day private or group tour that also explores the world of the renowned Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.

Description:

Enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour full of color and traditions on this sightseeing trip around some of Mexico City’s most enchanting neighborhoods.

Departing from Downtown Mexico City, head south, passing the most important sites of the modern city. Explore the university campus, where the library is famously decorated throughout with Mexican artist Juan O´Gorman’s stunning mosaic murals. The campus also includes the volcano-shaped, 63,000-seat Olympic Stadium. Continue throug the residential area of Pedregal de San Angel, built on lava fields.

Upon arrival at the calm waters of the Xochimilco canals, enjoy a scenic cruise along the waterway - one of the last traces of the Aztec era - on a traditional punt or pre-Hispanic boat.

Next, visit the colonial district of Coyoacan and admire the rambling 16th-century houses of Francisco Sosa Street. Continue along narrow cobblestone streets to the Zocalo (Main Square), where you will find the impressive mansion of the Conquistador, Hernando Cortes, and the Church of Saint John the Baptist (San Juan Bautista).

End your tour exploring the magical world of Frida Kahlo at the Frida Kahlo Museum. Housed in the striking cobalt blue house where she was born and returned for the last years of her life, the Casa Azul, as it is fondly known, contains a large assortment of pre-Hispanic artifacts, Mexican folk art, and indigenous jewelry from her personal collection.

  • Rating: 3 “Middling experience”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Firth, Germany on September 26th, 2014 Our guide Israel was very friendly and courtious,but when explaining complicated matters he stuggled with the English language. In Coyoacan we had Just 20 min to explore/grab a bite.
    At the Frieda Kahlo Museum we had 45 min to look around without guide or audioguide. The boattour was lovely, but only a short hour, We left Xochimilco at 15,15,
    Considering that the tour is supposed to be 8 hours and started at 9 o'clock...
    I would suggest to skip the University, plan more time for Coyoacan and a longer boatride!


  • Rating: 5 “Informative and fun”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Yarpturk, Australia on July 22nd, 2014 This tour was really interesting and allowed us to get to places in mexico city without having to navigate a lot of it ourselves. Our guide Alejandro was lovely and was able to answer any questions we had about Mexico. Prompt pick and up and drop off and they were flexible with any other plans that you had. Also allowed us so time to explore parts of the city and museum ourselves without having to be with the tour group the whole time. Would strongly recommend.


  • Rating: 5 “Day of Mexico City's History, Culture, Art and Food.”

    Reviewed by Antonio from Honolulu, United States on June 6th, 2014 Very enjoyable and educational tour of Mexico City. Alejandro did an excellent job explaining about the history, art, people and culture of the city. I highly recommend the tour.


  • Rating: 3 “Good snapshot tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Sydney, Australia on May 28th, 2014 The tour guide was great. He spoke in Spanish as well as English so we could understand. He was young but so knowledgeable about each area we visited. Any questions that the group asked, he was able to respond in full detail. Our only criticism is that the tour felt rather short. We started at 9am and got back to the hotel around 3pm. We would of liked to spend a little more time at Xochimilco and at Coyoacan City. At Coyoacan, we only did a quick walk around of the city, ate a Churro (spanish donut) and then walked to the Frida Kahlo Museum.


  • Rating: 5 “Gret experience”

    Reviewed by Jessica from San Francisco, United States on February 24th, 2014 The tour was great. Tour guide was very knowledgable which made all the places we visited that much more memorable. The Frida Kahlo museum was amazing, and the Xotchimilco boat ride was great. We ate an authentic Mexican lunch that was delicious.

    I would definitely recommend this tour
