    Coyoacán, National University, and Frida Kahlo Museum

    After meeting your guide in downtown Mexico City, your full-day tour kicks off at Coyoacán, which dates back to pre-Hispanic times. Admire 16th-century mansions along cobblestone streets, and learn about one of Mexico City’s oldest neighborhoods from your informative guide. Today, the area has blossomed into a cultural nexus for intellectuals and artists.

    Visit the National Autonomous University of Mexico, built-in 1551, and check out the UNESCO-listed Central Campus, a collaboration that came together in 1952 involving more than 60 engineers, architects, and artists, including muralists Diego Rivera and Juan O´Gorman.

    Next, head over to Jardín Hidalgo, and enjoy a lunch break here (own expense) in the garden area boasting restaurants, studios, and craft stalls. Next, enter the church of San Juan Bautista with your guide and admire the paintings inside.

    A fan of Frida Kahlo? At Coyoacán Casa Azul (Blue House), or the Frida Kahlo Museum, immerse yourself in the tumultuous life and iconic artwork of this beloved artist. It is here where Kahlo lived and loved with her husband, Diego Rivera. Enjoy an hour of free time in the museum.

    Xochimilco

    Your Mexico City sightseeing adventure continues at Xochimilco, located 17 miles (28 km) south of Mexico City, a waterway network of floating gardens of flowers. An ecological reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site, this valley was a lake during Aztec times. To get around the scarcity of arable soil back then, the people developed chinampas, islands with floating reed mats with soil.

    Spend about an hour drifting peacefully along the canals and admiring the chinampas from your colorful, flat-bottomed boat called a trajinera. Hear festive music from other boats, occupied by families and visitors celebrating weddings, birthdays and other happy occasions.

    As your boatman moves the vessel along by pulling a pole through the water, pass other painted vessels transporting passengers and check out boat-vendors selling fresh food. Enjoy an array of dishes and drinks for purchase, including roasted corn, mole, mixiote (barbequed meat), tacos, carnitas, quesadillas, pulque (milk-colored alcoholic beverage) and micheladas (Mexican beer-based cocktail).

    Your day tour ends with drop-off back at the central meeting points.

    Floating Gardens of Xochimilco
    After the Frida Kahlo Museum, continue on to Xochimilco, an agricultural area located 17 miles (28 km) south of Mexico City where many of the city’s flowers are grown. Back in Aztec times, this valley was once a lake. Learn how the local people, as a way around the lack of farmland, developed islands with floating reed mats loaded with soil and used them as gardens called chinampas. Today, these gardens are an ecological reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Board a colorful, flat-bottomed boat called a trajinera with your guide, and for an hour take a slow cruise on the chinampa channels, passing by floating gardens of flowers. As your boatman moves the vessel along by pulling a pole through the water, hear from your guide about the characteristic boats, originally hollowed from logs and once used for transportation throughout Mexico. Pass by other painted vessels transporting passengers and check out the boat vendors selling fresh food. Hungry? Taste a variety of dishes and drinks, such as mole, mixiote (barbequed meat), roasted corn, quesadillas, tacos, carnitas, pulque (milk-colored alcoholic beverage) and micheladas (Mexican beer-based cocktail). (Food and drink purchases are at your own expense.) Hear music like mariachi drifting from other boats, occupied by families and visitors celebrating birthdays, baptisms, weddings, or simply a good time.

    Frustrating experience!!!

    , Nov 2021
    We went to wrong location and missed the bus. We then proceeded to the tour site, thinking we could meet up with the group. Not only did Viator not know the guides whereabouts upon calling, they kept reiterating the same script about 3 meeting locations and that it was not possible to meet the group elsewhere. There policy does state that if you are late or miss the bus at one of there pick up locations, that you basically lose out and hence your money. If you are traveling with kids and/or in a foreign Country as was our case, I would say this is not the tour company for you. Absolutely no liency, and we were willing to meet up with the tour guide!!!

    Dear Amig@ We appreciate your comments, we are very sorry you could not be part of this experience. The meeting points are centrally located. Ideally, if you had contacted us as suppliers directly, the coordination to meet us during the tour would have flowed better. We regret this situation. Dulce, Amigo Tours

    Great guide. The speakers on the bus didn't work. Making it difficult to hear Kevin. We missed information that was of interest to us. Long bus ride, but Mexico city traffic is famous for being slow. We enjoyed the experience and definitely recommend it to others. Pick up was 2 min from our condo....go to like that .)but that's really our doing)

    It was a pleasant tour! We could have spent less time at the souvenir shop but xochimilko was great and coayacan was relaxed. The Frida Kahlo museum was enjoyable as well.

    Not what we wanted or paid for.

    , Nov 2021
    We specifically booked the Xochimilco and Coyoacan tour WITHOUT the Frida Kahlo musuem because we had already been there. We had hoped by cutting that portion our we would have more time at Xochimilco. Instead we were rushed out of Xochimilco only to end up at the Frida Kahlo museum anyway. And that was after almost 2hrs were wasted getting to and touring around the University (which was interesting but not what we paid for). Our guides were great but that wasnt the tour we wanted. We would have been better off going to Xochimilco ourselves.

    Wonderful day

    , Oct 2021
    This was a wonderful day trip. Our guide was great and we enjoyed our entire day. The highlight was Xochimilco. It exceeded expectations. Loved visiting the Frida Kahlo museum and seeing Coyoacan; however, there was not enough time given for those who go to the museum to see this neighborhood. We only had 30 minutes to walk around. It’s a charming area, so we wished we’d had more time. Quite honestly, if I could suggest any changes, it would be to skip the stop at the University/Olympic Stadium and spend more time in Coyoacan. Our pick up in Zona Rosa was easy to find and punctual. Bring cash with you on this trip for lunch and other things in Xochimilco! Great experience and enjoyed meeting other guests on our tour.
