    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.

    Loved the Coyoacan and Frida Kahlo Museum experience! I would suggest to the tour company to schedule the boat tour towards the end, rather than first.

    “Tour” with Strings Attached

    Don’t take this tour. Save yourself frustration. If you take this tour, expect to waste 2-3 hours doing things you don’t want to do. The tour had potential to be a great tour but was ruined by general confusion, disorganization, and did not need to be so long. The tour didn’t follow the itinerary as many have written. We were taken to a Silver shop, which was a 1.5 hour detour (bus went up, dilly dally for 30 min, bus goes back down). They did this at the beginning of the trip, which really soured everyone’s mood- especially because it was not listed. All of us would’ve preferred to sleep instead of being hassled - perhaps those booking the tour should try to skip the first stop (which was the university; this was actually okay and informative, but not necessary). The tour didn’t have a lot of information - this should’ve been advertise as “we will drive you around + entrance fees” - which would set better expectations. We spent a lot of time idling and standing around. All that said, we made a lot of new friends on this tour- the passengers made the best of the bad situation. Xochimilco was very touristy and chaotic, but is definitely part of the fun. Expect to be a bit ripped off here- it’s a tourist trap in itself but we had a ton of fun! We had a great group. I don’t recommend this tour unless you want to meet people at the expense of your time.

    Good day, river...so, so

    The Frida Kahlo was very nice, however the river ride was not all it was hiped up to be. The river very congested with and wasn't very many if any flowers. However the food on the boat was very good. Ricardo was very good and his little flag was cool. Our driver, Chistobal was amazing navigating the bus thru the narrow roads. Get ready to walk a lot.

    This tour was a great bargain for the money paid. The tour operator did her best to project her voice, but the bus was too big for those in the back to hear anything. Aside from not being able to hear everything, the tour was pretty great. The places we visited were magical. The tour allowed us to have plenty of time to visit the areas we visited. A lot of it independently. All in all, a great bargain. Just bring money for the Silver store.

    Our tour bus picked us up on time and took us to an amazing market/store where we bought handmade bags, jewelry, and other souvenirs. Next, we went to Mexico City’s university where we toured the grounds and took pictures. Then we went to the famous floating gardens. We ate, drank, sang, and had a blast. Last, we went to Frida Kahlos home. Make sure to explore the entire grounds because the back area had her clothes and personal belongings. I would recommend to bring snacks on this tour or eat breakfast before. We got to the boats around 1 and were very hungry. The tour was amazing and ended early enough for us to go to a restaurant for dinner. I would highly recommend doing this tour.

    We spent half the day travelling to and from shops that we were not interested in and we’re not included in the description. The meat of the advertised tour was good, it would have been better to stick to this with free time in Coyoacán square and perhaps reduce the length of tour by a couple of hours

    Disappointed

    , Apr 2022
    We absolutely hate it when tour companies drag us to a shopping trip that was not mentioned anywhere in the itinerary. If I had read that an hour would be wasted standing around waiting for others to buy things we have no interest in, we would not have chosen this tour. Also, we signed up for an English language tour. Our guide perhaps spoke in English 10% of the time, leaving us not able to understand much. Frida Kahlo’s home was lovely and the boats were fun. But I wish we had done both independently by Uber and saved a lot of time, money and aggravation.
