Xochimilco & Coyoacan Full-Day Tour with Frida Kahlo Museum
- Pickup available
- Duration: 10 hours
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.
A wonderful tour, a great guide! So many new things - a quick, but informative and charming walk through Coyoácan; must not skip the Frida Museum - fabulous and very moving; a beautiful ride on a trajinera in Xochimilco - with delicious food and drink; a great stop at the impressive UNAM campus; and a bonus photo opportunity at Frida's & Diego's studios. Our guide, Miriam, was kind and knowledgeable and our driver expertly navigated the busy streets while we were treated to an in-van viewing of the movie Frida. We loved every minute - an affordable way to see a lot of key spots in one go!
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.
I had limited time in Mexico so these day-tours were really the best ways to make the most out of my time. I'm pretty surprised with how much we were able to fit into one day. It was a great highlight of these areas with good information and still time to walk around on our own and explore. Its really so convenient also to have the transportation to all of these places taken care of.
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!
