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.

Excellent adventure. I would recommend you use the bathroom before you go bc it may be a while before you get to a stop that has one since traffic can be long and it can be a while to get destination to destination. Every place you go to you will learn a lot about the Aztecs, the city, and many things. Breaks are taken to get food, drink, or gifts.

The experience was great! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The bus was comfortable, and we made new friends. We got a bit of background about coyoacan, along with recommendations for places to eat and shop for souvenirs. We had enough time to check out the Frida Kahlo museum, and we got to see the mercado briefly for souvenirs. Xochimilco was fantastic. Plenty of fun on the trajinera boats with good food, drinks, and music. UNAM was interesting, but we were honestly so tired by then. Overall it was great.
