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.

    A wonderful tour, a great guide! So many new things - a quick, but informative and charming walk through Coyoácan; must not skip the Frida Museum - fabulous and very moving; a beautiful ride on a trajinera in Xochimilco - with delicious food and drink; a great stop at the impressive UNAM campus; and a bonus photo opportunity at Frida's & Diego's studios. Our guide, Miriam, was kind and knowledgeable and our driver expertly navigated the busy streets while we were treated to an in-van viewing of the movie Frida. We loved every minute - an affordable way to see a lot of key spots in one go!

    The same driver from the day before, he is a very nice man, very patient. The guide is a warm, helpful, very knowledgeable person who knows how to reach the audience. Hopefully this virus will go away soon, they are very valuable people who live and love their profession, of informing and instructing tourists.

    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.
