Full description

Enjoy a full-day guided tour of Mexico City’s most enchanting neighborhoods. Cruise along the Aztec-era Xochimilco canals, explore the colonial district, and admire the murals in the UNAM.

Departing from Downtown Mexico City, head south, passing the most important sites of the modern city. Stop off at a local cooperative shop that helps the Mexican local artisans.

The next stop 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.

Head to the eye-catching Xochimilco and board a trajinera - a colorful, gondola-like boat - for a ride through the neighborhood’s famous canals. As you indulge in local treats and try your hand at bartering, your guide will share the incredible details of what makes this area a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Next, visit the colonial district of Coyoacan and admire the rambling 16th-century houses of Francisco Sosa Street. As you wander its tree-lined streets, you’ll learn how this city has played a part in historical empires like the Aztec and Spanish to becoming a cultural capital and home to Octavio Paz, Leon Trotsky, Diego Rivera, and Frida Kahlo. At Casa Azul, Kahlo’s home and now museum, we’ll immerse ourselves in the trailblazing life of one of Mexico’s most original artists.

Mexico is known the world over for its living history and the breathtaking art of renowned artists, like Frida Kahlo, whose impact is still felt today. Visit the Frida Kahlo's Museum called "La Casa Azul". Housed in the striking cobalt blue house where she was born and returned for the last years of her life, the Casa Azul. See a large assortment of pre-Hispanic artifacts, Mexican folk art, and indigenous jewelry from her personal collection.

Enjoy a day full of Aztec history, Mexican art, and delicious flavors that combines some of the Mexico City's must sees in one tour.

Alexa was an excellent tour guide with a great sense of humor and a lot of knowledge to impart. It was sometimes difficult to understand her English due to her accent and also due to the speaker system. The tour was fun and informative and gave us easy access to several parts of Mexico City which we probably would have missed otherwise. We can highly recommend this tour!

Really great tour with knowledgeable guides. Well Paced, so you felt you saw everything and were not rushed. The boat tour is great fun and you soon bond with your fellow passengers on board. The Frida Kahlo museum is excellent and not too large 1.5 hours is just about right. Recommend

The tour guide was very attentive and friendly. The bus rides were well planned, luggage could easily be left on the bus. All program items were as previously described, you had enough time at each place to walk around alone and have a coffee or snack. All in all, the 10 hour trip was a lot of fun and we saw and got to know a lot.
