Full description
Float along the tranquil waterways of Xochimilco, in a colorful boat called a Trajinera, sipping on a drink and eating regional snacks prepared on the "restaurant boats" dotting the waterways. Listen to the sounds of the mariachis permeate through the air as you sail past the beautiful floating gardens, and then continue your tour to the neighborhood of Coyoacán, favored by some of Mexico's most famous artists and writers. Stroll its tree-lined cobbled streets, admiring the stucco and tile facades of its beautiful colonial houses. Next, make you way to Casa Azul, the former house of famed Mexican paintress Frida Kahlo. Gain insight into the life of this iconic painter and her famous husband, Diego Rivera and stroll through the picturesque garden, which, with its Mesoamerican pyramid, is also a sight to behold. The last stop of the tour is to the campus of the Central University, home to the Olympic Stadium from 1968 and adorned with murals by a number of Mexican artists.

We were a small group of 5 so very easy to hear Paloma our lovely guide. She was a local and very knowledgeable and managed to switch between English and Spanish for all the participants. We went on a Sunday when the traffic wasn’t too bad and it was great to see the locals enjoying themselves. The tour included tickets to the Frida Kahlo museum which skipped the queue!

Iniciamos o passeio um pouco atrasados, pq uma pessoa havia se atrasado. A viagem até Xochimilco é um pouco longa, bom para dormir. O passeio lá é bem bonito, as vezes fica agitado com os mariachis passando mas depois fica tranquilo de novo, assim por diante. De lá fomos para Coyacan. Tivemos um curtíssima passagem pelo zocalo e fomos almoçar no mercado. Almoço foi ok. De lá fomos para o museu da Frida, que tb tivemos pouco tempo para visitar (50min). De lá voltamos direto para CDmX. Fiquei com a sensação de que vi pouco de Coyoacan.

My friend and I had such a fun time on this tour! Our scheduled pick up time was 8am, but by the time the guides picked us up from our hotel it was 8:30am. We were the first ones picked up and it took until 9:30am to pick up all the other passengers from the other hotels. Our first stop was a lovely flea market where I picked up a few souvenirs. Next stop was the 1968 Mexico City Stadium where we stopped for a few minutes to take photos. Closer to lunch time we boarded the boat - keep in mind, it is not a 5 hour boat ride - you'll only be on the boat for 1.5-2 hours. Lunch is not included, but you can purchase quesadillas and drinks on the boat (trajineras). Lunch is 200 pesos. There is both meat and veggie options. It is a fun, relaxing afternoon. You'll see plenty of colorful boats pass by. The last part of the tour is Frida Khalo Casa Azul. The guides will drop you off there for you to tour on your own and then leave at your own time.
