Full 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. 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). Later, explore the magical world of Frida Kahlo at the Frida Kahlo Museum (if option is selected). 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. The final stop of the day is University City, where you can admire the many murals at the Rectory, and wander around the main campus' Central Library. The campus also includes an impressive volcano-shaped, 63,000-seat Olympic Stadium.

I had limited time in Mexico so these day-tours were really the best ways to make the most out of my time. I'm pretty surprised with how much we were able to fit into one day. It was a great highlight of these areas with good information and still time to walk around on our own and explore. Its really so convenient also to have the transportation to all of these places taken care of.

My high point was the visit to Freda Kahlo’s house.The main reason for coming to Mexico City .Having said that ,this is just a wonderful place.The people are just so laid back and without the hustle and bustle of most big cities .The people everywhere are just lovely ,an easy place to live.

Itinerary goes from Frida Kahlo museum - Coyoacan - UNAM murals and Xochimilco. WARNING: You need to ask your tour guide WHAT ARE THE MEETING TIMES and MEETING POINTS at every stop, because if you miss them... YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND! So make sure you know those every time! The tour will continue without you, so also make sure you have your stuff with you and don't leave it on the bus, cause if you miss the meeting times, they will leave with your stuff in the bus. Also, get the tour guide's phone number and the drivers just in case you need them. Aside from that, the tour is a great opportunity to learn about Frida and experience Mexican culture and get some cool souvenirs along the way. Plus tequila of course. The tour guides are knowledgeable, fun and friendly.
