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.


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.

    “Great day tour”

    Validated review by Yuliya – San Francisco, United States on June 29, 2015 We enjoyed this day tour a lot. I most of all enjoyed Coyoacan and Frida Kahlo Museum and well as UNAM campus. Xochimilco was nice too but a little intimidating that a lot of people floating by are trying to sell you things. Other than that, we had a good time and learned some history of these sites. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone visiting D.F.!

    “The name and description of the tour is misleading.”

    Validated review by a GetYourGuide Customer – Mansons Landing, Canada on January 8, 2015 More time spent driving around looking at arenas than anything else. The time spent in the canals is very short which means you spend half an hour in each direction on the busiest section, the guide does not accompany you for this part

    “Middling experience”

    Validated review by a GetYourGuide Customer – Firth, Germany on September 26, 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!

    “Informative and fun”

    Validated review by a GetYourGuide Customer – Yarpturk, Australia on July 22, 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.
